Support » Plugin: Gutenberg » OK, but not quite there yet

  • I help friends with their websites in Jimdo and Squarespace, and after testing Gutenberg I am much happier with it than with those editors.

    Still, there are some things I noticed right away after 15 minutes working with Gutenberg:

    1. When I add a new block it doesn’t always appear where my cursor is. I have deleted several blocks already, which popped up at the wrong position.
    2. So far I haven’t found out, if/ how I can move a block to another position. The only option i found is copy + paste the content to a new block. UPDATE: I found it! Not where I had expected it.
    3. I love the option to build columns. In the past I had tested various plugins and all had some issues messing things up. The Gutenberg column block is much better, even if it is still beta. But, please give us an option to determine column width, so that I can have a narrow and a wide column next to each other. In percent of available space would be sufficient for me.
    4. It took me sometime to find the preview after editing a block in HTML. To me the location of the preview button is not self-explaining. I did expect it below the “edit HTML” option.
    5. The editor interface wastes a lot of place to the left and right of the content (I have a 21 inch screen). That means a lot of scrolling, when editing content. Please make better use of the available space.

    First, thanks for taking time to test the new editing experience. It’s an interesting point you raise about preview to be right below the edit HTML option. Can I ask if there is any experience you use that you feel uses space the best for writing content?
