Gutenberg editor - Editor Block Toolbar (components list) covered after Page Update

When using Gutenberg to do basic editing of text blocks (I was on a site as well, if that helps) - I realized that after doing the Update on the page, the editor toolbar will be covered by the Page Updated banner going across the screen. See below for examples -

Before update:

After update:

Even as an experienced developer, I did not realize this was happening and the issue I am pointing out seems to be that the "Page Updated" banner does not need to:

  1. Go across the entire screen
  2. Stay on the screen until you X out of it

On a wide browser window, just a blank green area covers that bar and if you are not paying attention, it seems the toolbar is just gone. The words on the green bar are to the far left and X is to the far right.

Another idea might be to put the words "Page Updated. View Page X" all in the middle of that banner so it is obvious what is going on. Potentially also to move it into the edit-post-header area of the page so it will not cover part of the page you are editing.

Thanks so much!!

The block editor now uses toast notifications which appear in the bottom left of the screen.
