New editor preview options

You can now preview editor content in different screen sizes. Replacing the old preview button there is now a dropdown with “Desktop”, “Tablet” and “Mobile” sizes, as well as the previous front end preview option.

The new preview options currently only work on medium to large screens (>= 600px). In the future, there may be a way to preview large screens on a phone.

BlockBlock Block is the abstract term used to describe units of markup that, composed together, form the content or layout of a webpage using the WordPress editor. The idea combines concepts of what in the past may have achieved with shortcodes, custom HTML, and embed discovery into a single consistent API and user experience. developers

If you’re a block developer and would like to have responsive styles for your blocks in the editor, use the #start-resizable-editor-section and#end-resizable-editor-section markers to define responsive styles. Styles between these markers will be picked up by the editor and render correctly when it is resized. As an example, this is what your styles would look like:

#start-resizable-editor-section {
    display: none;

/* add all responsive styles here */

#end-resizable-editor-section {
    display: none;

Currently, we aren’t able to manipulate theme editor styles because they are loaded inline in a <style> tagtag A directory in Subversion. WordPress uses tags to store a single snapshot of a version (3.6, 3.6.1, etc.), the common convention of tags in version control systems. (Not to be confused with post tags.), instead of a separate stylesheet.
