I really hate the new WordPress Gutenberg layout. I still can’t for the life of me understand why they changed the input. It is no where near as intuitive as medium or ghosts interface.

The tweaks they made to make it more like a blank sheet have improved it somewhat but have you actually tried moving one of the ‘blocks’ it creates if something ends up in the wrong place? Garbage.
