What to Test

  1. Using 12.7-rc-1 or later, go to Me > App Settings > Use Block Editor to enable Gutenberg Mobile for testing on new posts. Posts created using Gutenberg on the web should open in Gutenberg on the app regardless of what is selected in App Settings.
  2. Turn on airplane mode, create a local draft, turn off airplane mode, check to make sure an upload post system notification appears. (9956)
  3. Create a post with title + content, tap overflow menu > Save as draft, press Up button (arrow) before the upload finishes, make sure the app doesn’t create two drafts. (10009)
  4. Follow “Test Steps” in WordPress/pull/9783 to see that there is no scroll bleed on the themes screen. (9783)
  5. Block Editor: press Enter repeatedly on the Post Title, there should not be any keyboard flickering. (1076)
  6. Block Editor: add a quote block and try to break it. (207)
  7. Block Editor: add a more block and try to break it. (859)
  8. Block Editor: create and publish post using all of the available blocks (Paragraph, Heading, Image, Lists, Separator, Page Break, Quote, More) and check that each one works as expected.
