    Nice article James.

    I was very curious as to how the new editor was being perceived by people and came to this page.
    I am currently in the process of rewriting my own themes and plugins for the new editor and having used it on and off for the past few months, one thing is really apparent: It is simply difficult and it proves impossible to achieve the most basic modern layouts within the columns block. The new group block is also incredible limited so that has not improved things in the least. I was waiting on the arrival of the group block and it made me smile for the naive simplicity. Basically groups need background images, colours and paddings to be of any use whatsoever to a design.

    It is also obvious the new editor only exists only as a reaction to SquareSpace etc which is aimed at the younger user. A lot of my clients would be in their 50s and the learning curve involved with the new editor would simply be too great for quite a few of them.

    so we are staying with the Classic editor and the vain hope that like Brexit maybe this whole thing is just a fad 🙂

    Now back to moving my paragraphs up and down the page, what a joy !

    Best

    Kieran
