When I select the Maelstrom style it continuously gives a shaking effect. Is this given purposely as its name suggests? 🤔

  3. Click on Browse Style
  4. Select Maelstrom style
  5. Now, observe the shaking effect as shown in the screenshot.

Hi @krupajnanda
Thank you for the report.
This type of shaking is not intentional.

I have not been able to reproduce it on a local install of 6.4.3 or 6.5 beta 2,
nor on the WordPress playground, with or without the mentioned plugins.

I am using macOS, Chrome Version 121.0.6167.184
My screen resolution is 1512x982.
Reducing the browser window size does not make a difference.

I was unable to replicate the issue on both local and live servers on both 6.5-RC1 and 6.4.3 versions using macOS and Windows.

As discussion on accessibility bug scrub today. We found the issue. When we change the style, page recalculate the hight and add scrollbar to it. For some styles, it gets removed and for some it removes but blank area stays. For reference check the this link:

The scrollbar needs to be removed for all the styles.

Noting that the issue is specific to the 'Browse Styles' functionality (findable from the right sidebar 'Styles' option > 'Browse Styles', and *not* in the Styles selection panel in the left sidebar. Most likely this is specific to the Zoom out mode.
