In WP 5.5.1, I think there are 2 new and severe usability issues in Gutenberg.
First, the Gutenberg editor greys out all the blocks except the one that currently has the focus. This makes it extremely difficult to read the whole screen and forces me to mouse through each block in order to read the post I am editing.
I posted a screenshot on my website as an example. This greyed out text is very hard for me to read because I am pretty old.
Secondly, if I click on the “+” icon in he upper left corner of Gutenberg to add a block, then the document/block column on the right side disappears. I have to move the cursor to the upper right corner and click on Settings to bring back the column. This column does not disappear if I can get the “+ add block” element to mouse up.
