    This is a welcome step forward, as I have found the Columns block limited in use compared to page builders. You said that “WordPress core’s current implementation of the Columns block is so confusing that it is barely usable.” I have to agree!

    Even with these changes, the block is still quite fiddly to manipulate, though. The ability to have variable width columns is nice but I wish it was possible to drag the column edge to adjust the width as well as use the slider.

    Any idea when these features are coming to Core?

    So basically they’re just taking all the excellent features from Atomic Blocks, and repurposing as their own… 😉

    A lot of people don’t like to compare Gutenberg to Page Builders. I feel like once you start allowing the user to define layouts you’ve moved away from simple editing and stepped into realm of page building. You’re no longer editing simple content in a word document like the Classic Editor but building layouts on a white screen that may not necessarily look the same when you publish that page to whatever theme.

    Part of the beauty of Page Builders is you get the front-end experience while building your layouts and adding in your content. They may as well start to embracing that type of experience and start competing with actual Page Builder plugins.
