    “However, it is a far cry from what a good theme designer can do with the flexibility of plain ol’ CSS.”

    Surely the ability to enqueue shared editor CSS and register custom styles for blocks with unique classnames (.is-style-x) gives frontend developers all the same freedom they would have with bespoke menus?
    I already make heavy use of the block styles system to apply custom CSS to specific blocks without interfering with any existing styles, and the idea of doing so in conjunction with basic controls like background colours and text colour really excites me.

      It’s about the end-user not having the flexibility of some of the most basic CSS needed for truly designing nav menus. Because the end-user can change some values such as the text and background colors, those colors may clash with the theme’s other colors for borders and link backgrounds, for example. They also do not have control over :hover and :focus states of those colors. Thus, using CSS is the better solution at the moment.

    Thank you, I am very excited to be able to change the colors of the navigation. I was very reluctant to switch to Gutenberg but I did it this month and I was very surprised.

    This update allows me, as a web developer, to really stay with a lean, lightweight theme, and customize in Gutenberg in really cool ways! The navbar is game-changing for lightweight frontpages without needing to load scripts and unnecessary page design plugins. Thanks for the great post!

    This is fantastic. I always love Gutenberg but had to ditch it initially as it was too buggy. But looks like it is improving day by day and recently I launched a blog having Gutenberg. I could happily stop buying Elementor Licence and stick to Gutenberg

    These are encouraging changes to Gutenberg. Can we expect a custom color palette in Gutenberg soon since this is presently accomplished using a plugin.

    I use Gutenberg as my WordPress text editor. But if I edit some old content then classic editor appears. Can you help me to fix this issue?

      Do you have the Classic Editor plugin installed? If so, you can click the “Edit (Block Editor)” link from the Posts screen in the admin. Just hover over the post you want to edit to see the link.

      If you just have the Gutenberg plugin installed, you should see the new Gutenberg editor with the post content within the Classic block for older posts.

    Really good to hear that they inprove usability and Speed!
    I was annoyed at the beginning but Started one Page with Gutenberg and Liked it the more I worked with it.
    Speed is critical compared with Elementor.
    If Design Options in Gutenberg step Up further No need for Elementor anymore.
