Description (last modified by sabernhardt)

There is a bug when using the directional keys (left and right), to navigate in a text, the cursor moves to a different paragraph, usually gets hidden behind the toolbar (class="block-library-classic__toolbar"). This might be because of the legacy classic editor block in Gutenberg editor, on small screens.

Could you report this on the Gutenberg repository?

The Classic block is still available, though it typically opens a modal dialog now for editing its content.

To get the Classic block within the editor canvas as shown in Cursor.png, you can disable the iframe canvas by either

  1. activating a plugin such as Yoast SEO or
  2. going to the three-dot Options menu, choosing Preferences, selecting the Panels tab, activating the Custom fields panel, and pressing the "Show & Reload Page" button.
