#58642 closed feature request (maybelater)

Editor: Styles sidebar polishing

Related to the many changes being introduced in the Site Editor user experience in WordPress 6.3, the Site View emphasizes Style variations with a deep link to open Styles. After a few Gutenberg releases with this new UI, feedback is the experience is not the best, and Style Variations are too heavily emphasized.

I'd suggest blessing the polishing of this particular experience, as not only will it provide users with a better experience right in 6.3, but will avoid them being presented again with a different interface by the time 6.4 lands.

@priethor Are there specific PRs that are related to this? I see a couple of closed PRs mentioned in the issue and a merge that was mentioned as well, but I cannot tell what this actually needs before making a decision on this for 6.3.

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

There was a PR in this regard, but it has been discarded. There is no consensus on whether the proposed change improves the experience in the current Site Editor status, so the Styles section in the sidebar will remain as-is for 6.3 and will be iterated on in the upcoming releases (e.g., adding font management?).

  • Resolution changed from fixed to maybelater

So this doesn't show up in the final "fixed" count, I'm changing the resolution.
