    Well done for making it nigh-on impossible to write a simple chemistry blog. I used to use superscript and subscript to show all the various masses, numbers, charges etc. on symbols. Where are the more advanced formatting options on Gutenberg? Not here. By the time you read this, perhaps they’ll have updated and included what they should have done in the first place. I had to use: “Advanced Rich Text Tools for Gutenberg” from Ella van Durpe.
    I also like HTML mode. What a palaver for this block-head business. Make it as difficult and unwieldy as possible. The idea is good, but the reality of using it is abysmal. Back to the blockboard. I note that many users have given it a 5*, and some give the helpful, “anybody who can’t use this is an idiot”. I would rank it far higher if it had the functionality I need. But it doesn’t. I have to install another raft of plugins to get it to work as required.
    However, having said all that, I will be continuing to use it, hoping to improve it myself. One feature that I did find interesting was the ability to produce your own custom blocks, which may eventually get to replace all my ugly shortcodes. Just need to get my head around React. 🙂
