I am opening this topic again because an admin marked the old topic as “resolved” when it was not resolved and he also posted a comment that might come across as rude at the end of the thread.
To sum up what many users are saying is the new block editor defaults to a too narrow of a view. The short feedback from WordPress has been that the theme you are using is outdated and needs to be updated. But logically this does not make a lot of sense. The default block editor chooses a default width…. why not make that default width be dynamically as wide as the browser is at the time? That is, if the theme has no specifications for the width. There is no good reason that has been given that this is not the default behavior. There may be a good reason, but it has not been explains as far as I have seen.
It is unrealistic to think that thousands upon thousands of non-profit organizations on shoe-string budgets can afford to change their WordPress theme and many feel intimidated by any real coding.
Using the classic editor plugin is the work around millions of people are choosing. If a WordPress admin wants to again close this thread so that no one can complain, a good way to close it would be:
1) State the given work around using the classic plugin and state how long it is planned to support this work around.
2) Link to some online tutorials about how one could go about updating their own theme to be more compatible with the new block editor.
This would be much more helpful.
