New Custom CSS feature for All Blocks in Gutenberg Editor

It would be very helpful for us if there is an option in the Gutenberg Editor to add Custom CSS for any block we want. Currently Gutenberg has limited support for properties of the basic blocks, like the Rows & Stacks don’t have a property to set width when put inside of another Stack, there is no support for Absolute positioning for Rows & Stacks. We know that currently WordPress is working on bringing support for these kinds of basic properties like, New WordPress 6.6 introduced the support for Box-Shadow. It will be very exciting to have support for all these kinds of properties, But till WordPress brings support for all the properties, it will be really helpful to have a Custom CSS option for all the blocks in Gutenberg Editor. Also, even if WordPress brings support for all these properties, it will be really helpful to have a Custom CSS option for any Block, as it provides an option for more granular level of customisation to any Block. I believe it will be really helpful to more people too.

I have an Example Plugin which provides a Similar Kind of Support:

Hi @posimyththemes
Changes, bug fixes and enhancements to the editor and the blocks are managed in the Gutenberg GitHub repository.

There is already an open issue there where the custom CSS feature is being discussed.
You are welcome to continue the discussion here:

Because of this, I am closing this ticket as "reported upstream".
