In these days, I’m trying to test the new Gutenberg editor on my personal website, and as part of the Gutenberg Challenge, I’m forcing myself to write something about it, at least once a week.
I’ve always thought that the variety of controls that you have at your disposal would eventually become a problem, since there’s only so much space for displaying them.
Splitting stuff in tabs, and displaying quick shortcuts before even clicking the “+” button is exactly the type of countermove to balance the aforementioned abundancy.
The general feeling that I have with this editor is quite frankly great, and for the first time in years I don’t feel the urge to go back writing the post in an editor that’s more comfortable to me, such as Sublime Text or Byword.
The only thing I don’t really see the necessity of is the Drop Cap setting, which is, in my opinion, cosmetic enough to be enforced as an option by the theme that’s currently active, rather than the editor itself.
