    When editing a Testimonial block, when changing the number of testimonials, i.e. adding new ones or removing them, the behavior is very non-intuitive, especially when working in multiple columns. For example, in working on a client site with a two-column testimonial block, increasing the number of testimonials by X adds X new boilerplate testimonials as expected. It took me a while to figure out how to add them to a specific place in the order. The block simply adds them after whatever testimonial happens to be displayed at the moment in the second column. By the same token, decreasing the number of testimonials by X removes X testimonials beginning with the two columns displayed. This is far from obvious. Once I figured out what it was doing, I could deal with it, but many users would have no idea what was going on. If the order of the testimonials is important, this becomes more of an issue. There need to be options presented that the user can specify where in the order of the testimonials a new one should be added, or which one(s) should be removed.

    Also, I don’t see a way to change the order of the testimonials without a lot of copying and pasting. There needs to be an option to simply move a testimonial from position X to position Y and shift the others around appropriately.

    Finally, it would be really nice if the autoplay was turned off by default while in the edit mode. It’s a bit of a pain to have to remember to turn it off before editing and turn it back on before saving the final version of the page.
