Justified text

Justified text is a constraint in some schools and newsrooms, so it’s something the editor needs to support. At the same time, it’s less legible, and should be applied all across a site rather than on a per-paragraph basis. These designs go with an issue that discusses this.

Merge Details Panel + Inspector

Further explorations in the initiative to merge the dark “Details panel” with the document Inspector. The panels have been abstracted so as to define their principles. The next step is to assemble examples for different contexts, e.g.; perusing the Inspector in the pages data view, experimenting with multi-document selection (similar to how the block inspector handles multi-block selection).

If you have updates you’d like to include in the next Design Share, drop a note in the #design channel. Most active design work happens in the block editor project, if you’d like to contribute directly, consider dropping into needs design or needs design feedback.
