#57212 new defect (bug)

Gutenberg list block treating each UL as separate block? Why?

After WordPress core update 6.x we start seeing that Gutenberg block for LISTS is now treating each separate UL as what looks like a separate block, so that each UL can be dragged, reordered, copied, duplicated, font styles, etc...

It is confusing, not intuitive. Previous method of Gutenberg lists was nice and simple, it was just one master (parent) list and all UL inherit the style of the parent without ability to treat ULs separately.

Would be nice to have option in the Gutenberg LIST block to disable the treatment of ULs separately and just keep it one simple master list.

GB6394 explains the reasoning, and GB42711 nested the blocks. Recommendations to change this behavior would belong on the Gutenberg repository.

Agree with OP here. This update affects our users who just want a basic list function. It broke what didn't need fixing. Should have been introduced as a separate block altogether like an "Advanced list builder"

The introduction of InnerBlocks (is that the intent?) is more for advanced users of WP. Not the majority of users.

If this is introduced functionality, I don't see it mentioned in the official documentation. Any videos on how to use it?
