Strange behavior with columns block

Reported by: the_Alien_01 Owned by:
Milestone: Priority: normal
Severity: major Version: 5.5
Component: Editor Keywords: needs-patch
Focuses: Cc:


I seem to be unable to add any blocks to a column of the Columns block via the Block Inserter Sidebar.

What I do:

  1. Click +button
  2. Click "Browse All"
  3. Click Design > Columns, choose (fx) 3 columns
  4. Click + in the first column
  5. Click "Browse All"
  6. Click (fx) Text > Quote

What happens: Quote adds below the Columns block (sometimes further below or even above)
What was expected: Quote adds in first column of the Columns block

It was also reported on GitHub in this issue:

Testing the block inserter in the WordPress 5.6 release candidate, it seems the problem is fixed for the next version (scheduled for December 8).
