Support » Plugin: Gutenberg » Gutenberg Disrupts the Writing Process Flow

  • I have tried to use Gutenberg twice now and I really cannot stand it. Writing should be a process that flows and this forces you to create disparate chunks of text. Gutenberg has no flow. I am switching back to the Classic Editor and plan to stay there as long as I can or find another platform.

  • Yes, the novelty of the interface, the block borders and ‘things’ showing up on mouse over, can be distracting and gets you right out of your workflow. We read and heard similar comments. I also had a similar experience when I first started using it.

    If you are up for another experiment, you could try to use the Classic block. It’s available as a standard block from the block selection. Once you use it more often it’ll be in the top section. Alternatively, where is now says, “Write your story” type “/cla” to call up the classic block from the list.
    Using the slash “/” command + Classic block might get you close to the old editor experience with the benefits of Gutenberg. Let me know how it goes….

    Question @schwinbp, were you able to type and hit enter to move onto the next paragraph. Or did you stop to click and add a new block to move onto the next paragraph?

    @bph – Thanks for your reply. I have already switched back to the Classic Editor, but I will give the tricks you suggested a try when I am forced to switch back. I did look for a Classic Editor block, but did not see that in the list.
    @cabatint – I thought I tried that but it only let me have one paragraph in the block. I will try again when I switch back.
