September 22, 2021
This could have been a 5 star plugin - easily ! Having preset values for paddings/margins is almost a deal breaker for me here. The author of the post/page should be the only one in authority to decide exactly how much spacing is needed for the blocks, as different sites/themes have different requirements. This plugin adds most of the necessary things to make Gutenberg a viable page builder, and (this plugin) comes very close in filling the missing items, but really, the site admin needs to make ALL the decisions for their own site. I would very gladly revise my rating to 5 stars, once I we get more options and freedoms with the block spacings. UPDATE: Sept 22, 2021: The new update fixes many things, and even though I wanted to be able to have custom padding/margin values, I think it's only fair to change my rating from 4 stars to 5. I just wish more people would appreciate this plugin, so it would further be developed. Good job, and thanks again!
