Description

Hi.

I updated to WP 6.1 on our dev site, but unfortunately, I've encountered a game-changing bug.

Compared to 6.0.3, editors are unable to add new blocks via "+ button" on the right. The only way to use this button is to click somewhere outside the editor and it will show up – it won't show up if you add a new paragraph.

I recorded a comparison between WP 6.0.3 which is working fine and WP 6.1. Here's the video: https://youtu.be/f3vEHjDhM1g

And here's the video showing specifically how to make the button appear on WP 6.1: https://i.imgur.com/M8P31x7.mp4

Hope it helps and the issue will soon be gone!

For clarification: the video showing the comparison between WP 6.0.3 and WP 6.1 was recorded before the next one – in the first video I wrote that the buttton seems to be showing up randomly, but later I figured out a pattern and showed it in the next video.
