“What’s new in GutenbergGutenbergThe Gutenberg project is the new Editor Interface for WordPress. The editor improves the process and experience of creating new content, making writing rich content much simpler. It uses ‘blocks’ to add richness rather than shortcodes, custom HTML etc. https://wordpress.org/gutenberg/…” posts (labeled with the #gutenberg-new tagtagA 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.)) are posted following every Gutenberg release on a biweekly basis, discovering new features included in each release. As a reminder, here’s an overview of different ways to keep up with Gutenberg and the Full Site Editing project.
Gutenberg 14.3 has been released and is available for download!
It continues to build on recent writing flow improvements, refines image blockBlockBlock 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. creation via drag-n-drop, adds an enhanced tools panel to the Styles interface, and much more!
Continuing on from the improvements to writing flow in the last release. Gutenberg 14.3 includes support for alt + arrow keyboard combinations to make navigating blocks of text a breeze.
For example, if your cursor is towards the end of a long paragraph, you can quickly press alt + up arrow to move to the beginning of that paragraph. If you are already at the beginning of a text block, you’ll move to the start of the previous paragraph. Similarly, alt + down arrow will move you to the end of a block of text.
Improved drag and drop for images
As of Gutenberg 14.3, you can now drop an image onto an empty paragraph block to replace it with a new Image block.
Improved tools panels for the Styles typography controls
Building on past releases, Gutenberg 14.3 now brings the Tools Panels to the Styles interface. This makes the Styles interface consistent with the Block Settings interface, but it also makes it more usable by being able to reset values and opens the door to adding hidden-by-default controls, too!
