So, this has been a part of Gutenberg for quite a while and let’s be honest, it was long overdue.
How can this not be available for years already?
Setting up and changing all editor preferences by device and browser is a massive pain.
Especially when counting in the Cwicly settings on top.
Not to mention when adjusting things later. It’s a mess.
While it seems to work for the WordPress part, Cwicly settings do not.
WordPress 6.1 will arrive on November 1st and this feature will be a part of WP core then.
How will Cwicly integrate? Is this something you are aware of?
Can you point out the locally stored settings you’d like to see persist?
Thanks for picking this up @JohnD.
Well, in my opinion, when I switch Browser or Device, I want to continue in the exact same environment.
So my answer to your question is: everything
I’m not sure what’s affected in detail but here are some points that are really annoying for me:
- Navigator Position
- Quick Block Inserter
- applicable options inside the Global Styles Settings, like
- Default Block
- Inspector Position
- Linked Values
Hope I didn’t miss something important and that it makes sense.
Can you take advantage of that API to implement the Cwicly stuff as well?
Thank you for going into more detail.
We haven’t yet had time to take a look at the details of the API you are referring to, but Louis is aware of the situation.
Moving this to “planned” feature request.
