Gutenberg 2.6 is available for download and with it, comes a new way of sorting blocks. In addition to using up and down arrows, this version introduces the ability to sort blocks by dragging and dropping .
If you hover the cursor over the up and down arrows on the left side of a block, you’ll see a hand icon. Simply click, hold, and drag the block up or down below or above the blue indicator.
In my limited testing, I found drag and drop to be hit or miss. Sometimes, when I try to drag and drop a block, the blue line doesn’t show up.
The hand icon for the cursor is different for the top and bottom of the block. You can drag a block by hovering over the bottom of it but you can’t do it from the top.
I also found it difficult to add a new block manually. For example, when I add a paragraph block, I don’t see the Plus icon to create a new block underneath it anymore.
Pressing enter at the end of a paragraph creates a new Paragraph block automatically. But I don’t know how to transform it into an image block. I’ll need to do more testing to figure out what’s going on.
