    First, I like the idea of the blocks.
    The problem: the developers didn’t spend enough time getting all the bugs out of it.
    As a result, it’s a very trying and disappointing experience when using the block editor.

    The Gute developers should have spent more time making this a solid, dependable, working editor.

    I wanted to dump Elementor and go with the new Gute Block editor. I found some nice third party block developers. I can understand and accept that there will be a learning curve.
    However, I can’t accept the same problem keeps coming back.

    Specifically: Every time I go back to edit a page I get the followering:
    “This block contains unexpected or invalid content” Resolve – Convert to HTML” > I click resolve > then convert to blocks. Then I have to ‘re-align’ all texts that were “centered” because now they’re aligned left. EVERYTIME! Yeah, I’m yelling.
    (note: this issue was posted in the plugin support forum. — no solution!)

    If it wasn’t for this ONE issue I could tolerate the other minor issues. I don’t want to be spending my time having to ‘reset’ my content every time I want to edit my content.

    So as of today, I’ll go back to the free Elementor. I doubt that I’ll ever come back to using this new-not-ready-for-prime-time block editor.

    It’s a shame. The Gute developers had a great idea. However, they pushed it out without fully developing it. The shouldn’t use the general public as beta testers. We’re bloggers, not beta-testers for a block editor plugin.
