Having absolutely zero indication of block boundaries while editing was driving me insane. I'm kind of amazed this was left out of the default gutenberg editor. This is going to make my edits so much quicker, thank you so much for this plug in!

This guy is a Genius ! Guttemberg is not intuitive when you have to understand how the block are distributed in the page. With this cool plugins, easy to install you will see immediately the guides allowing you to manage in a better manner the style of your page ! 5 Stars for Marchetti Design ! My legend ! Ps: Installed right now on WP 5.7.1
