Design Share: Sep 26–Oct 7

Hi, all! Here are a few projects the Design Team has contributed to over the past couple of weeks.

Partial selections remain the native indicator, but when the selection starts to include a 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. that can’t be merged, the multi-selection now shows an overlay color across every block selected.

Navigation overlay as a block

Revisited and updated an issue for moving the navigation overlay into a separate block, allowing global styles customization and custom inner blocks. The issue could use your feedback!

Resizing images to snap to wide and full alignments

Removing layout shifts from Quote and Image

Most on-select layout shifts have been removed from the editor, but the image caption and quote citation fields still cause a jump. This mockup explores moving those fields into a toolbar button.

Cover margin bugfix

From the department of details that matter, the focus style for a Cover block was a couple of pixels too tall, surfacing a gap at the bottom. We fixed it
