Hi @Presskopp —  can you provide more details about your setup? I tried to recreate this, but I'm seeing things a little differently:


Tested on MacOS 10.14.1, using:

  • Safari 12.0.1
  • Chrome 70.0.3538.102
  • Firefox 63.0.3

Looks the same on both 5.0-beta5-43909, and 4.9.8 running Gutenberg 4.5.1

  • Summary changed from Twenty Nineteen: preview for pullquote appears empty to Twenty Nineteen: preview for blockquote appears empty

Oh wait! This is referencing the blockquote block, not the pullquote block. I'm updating the title so that's more clear.

I see the same in that case. This is likely due to the line-height of the text within the block — I'm not 100% sure we can adjust styles just within the preview there, since they're supposed to be generated automatically.

I only talk about the 'preview of the preview' - the small bordered window. It appears empty in both cases for the second style variant.

blockquote.wp-block-quote.is-style-large {
    top: -75px;
    position: relative;

This is helping, but doesn't look like a good patch

Thanks for reporting this issue, @Presskopp, and for the testing @kjellr!

It looks like it could be possible to fix this within the theme, but not exactly ideal.

There's currently an issue open in the Gutenberg repo that also addresses this:


I'm going to defer to that issue for a fix for now, and close this one as a wontfix within the theme. I'll keep an eye out for how the GitHub issue resolves, and follow up here if needed.

Just let me know if there are any questions about this!
