Support » Plugin: Gutenberg » Not intuitive enough for basic editing

  • Why oh why does it make a new block everytime I hit return? I just want a paragraph. This update breaks the most basic functions of editing. I don’t know if it’s my theme or what but it does not play nice. Also when I converted all my text to html and then switched back to the editor it wrapped everything in DIVs instead of paragraphs!

    In Gutenberg the block is the basic editing unit, hence “everything” is a block. A paragraph therefore becomes a block with individual properties.

    Hitting return is by default meant to create a new paragraph, it does this in all major desktop grade text editors (Pages, Word, etc.), hence in Gutenberg it will create a new block, because all paragraphs are blocks.

    If you don’t want to create a new paragraph there is always SHIFT+Enter which will simply create a newline in the current block/paragraph.

    What do you mean by:

    > when I converted all my text to html and then switched back to the editor

    How do you do that?
