First impression: what a minimalistic editor, there’s almost nothing here.
First curiosity: how do I choose a layout?
- step one: found a list
- step two: yes, it’s a list
- step three: no, it’s not a layout…
Wow, this editor wastes a lot of white space, I’m going to need a 32″ display to enjoy this. BTW, how do I avoid paragraphs when inserting carriage returns?
Hmm, Shift+Enter does exactly that, good, programmers are used to this.
Back to the layout: let’s try clicking that gear icon. Hmm no: plain useless for me. Let’s try the mobile menu. Neither.
So let’s try publishing. Good: it does not reload the editor. That’s a neat one. but wait, I was after the layout. I want 3 columns.
Woa woa I’ve just noticed the revisions counter… it’s 33! But I’ve published only one revision up until now! Let’s have a look at the history. Good, it autosaves my edits even if I do not publish. Well, is this really good? I don’t know, I can see reasons to consider this both good and bad. I mean, it must be a nightmare to find the revision you want if you have too look for it between thousands of almost useless autosaves…
Now back to the layout problem. 3 columns. Yes, I’ve finally found it, but it’s a block type and you can’t convert a Text Block into a Columns Block (not yet at least), so you need to know upfront that you want columns. But you can convert existing blocks into shared blocks, and then put them into columns: only a workaround, but it’s good enough for the time being.
Now someone pretends qTranslateX is not compatible with Gutenberg. Bravo! Prova a cambiare lingua con la voce di menù in alto…
