While playing around with the Gutenberg Page editor in WordPress, I stumbled onto an upcoming feature: Multiple Block Editing. What could this be used for?
- Wrapping multiple blocks in a single “Text Column” (current verbiage for columns in Gutenberg)
- Center aligning or other alignment for multiple blocks
- Wrapping multiple blocks with a HTML class (ie:
- Deleting or duplicating multiple blocks
Having used the Gutenberg editor a little bit, it definitely has a few bugs, especially undo. It is not very good at undoing, re-arranging and stepping backwards steps correctly in the Gutenberg Editor with Command-Z or Ctrl-Z on Windows.
All in all, with the little time I’ve spent with Gutenberg, I’d have to say it’s a homerun for WordPress. I believe it will bring a whole new variety of “front-end developers” – still need to figure out a name for these designers in the browser.
