    “the ability to transform a Preformatted block into a Code block.”

    I finally got round to pulling together a starter list of css styles and block transformation options (see https://garyt.xyz/ki), and this was an obvious omission; I think all transformations should be bi-directional where possible. Better table manipulation would be handy as well.

      Nice breakdown.

      One that bothers me is not being able to transform a paragraph into a pullquote and vice versa. You have to transform into a quote first, then make a second transform.

        Thanks, and… mea culpa. Your comment makes me realise that I’d turned off some of the standard blocks – including pullquote and spacer. Version 2 / update to come over the weekend then.

        Sometimes I think WordPress and Gutenberg are built by people who have never thought to (for example) transform a paragraph into a pullquote, can’t understand why anyone would want to do it and then refuse to believe that anyone would ever do so. Until we nudge them gently in the right direction ;-)

          Or maybe just make a PR/issue :) There’s just so much work that needs to be done and not enough developpers on it. Good remark though (paragraph -> quote and not paragraph -> pullquote).

          By the way, I’m looking forward your first PR Justin. You’re contributing very positively with your feedback and posts, highly appreciated, maybe the next step is a PR ;)

    “For this feature to land in core, it needs to be a seamless experience.”

    I wish the Gutenberg team would adopt this philosophy one of these days. It’s grown a lot of course, but it seems these days I have to spend half my time making endless training videos for clients who can’t figure out how to use it.

    The only feature I am waiting for right now is when Gutenberg and the block editor start loading CSS conditionally per block in use. Right now, all my CSS files are below 20kb but the block editor or Gutenberg installed add an additional 56kb!

    I had struggled with the multi-block edits. Thanks, this helped a lot.
