Inline CSS gets added to blocks (randomly?)

Sometimes, the transform property (more specifically the translate value) doesn’t get reflected inside the editor.

The reason:


After refreshing the page, it’s working again.
Not sure what this is causing and if it is a bug or not.
Maybe there is some explanation.


I also found this CSS applied to an img tag, preventing custom z-index to work…

Thanks for confirming that it’s not only me.
There are also other CSS variations from what I posted above.
Sometimes, it even prevents me clicking blocks on the canvas.

Again, refreshing has always been worked.
Turned this into a bug report and tweaked the title, as this needs to be investigated.

Hi @Marius,

Apologies for not reacting to this.
Could you possibly give me a more precise pathway to reproduce it? I can’t quite imagine where we’re adding these inline styles.


Sorry for the lack of info in this case @Louis.
Initially, I wasn’t sure if it’s a bug, so I quickly threw something in.

Will update with hopefully more info and context , as soon as I’m facing it again.

Hourra!!! Found a very simple way to reproduce this:

  • Insert an image at the end of non-empty section and inspect CSS: everything is OK.

  • Now move the image up and inspect CSS: BOOOM :slight_smile:

EDIT: It seems to happen with ANY block which is moved in the structure panel, maybe to make it stand above the others when moving? But should be reset when released.

Wow, not sure if I ever figured that out.

I can confirm that but seems not to be consistent on my side.
It also sometimes gets added to blocks which are moved passively (when other blocks are moved).
Definitely a solid point to start investigating. Thanks a lot @yankiara.

Please don’t let this be a Gutenberg behaviour/limitation which can’t be addressed :unamused:
