More commands are planned via user feature requests.

Here are the major features

The Headline Block is very versatile and is useful for a lot of situations. You can set the Headline as the default block and choose which HTML element you’d like to start off with.

Wrap Multiple Blocks in a Container

Commands At Your Fingertips

The block editor’s Command Palette is becoming more featured and has several shortcut commands, with more coming as users explore this new feature.

Generate New Unique IDs for a Block

If you copy or duplicate a lot of blocks by GenerateBlocks, you’ll inevitably run into style conflicts where changing one block changes another. This allows you to generate new Unique IDs for a block and all its children.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Pattern Importer, and how does it work?

GenerateBlocks has long had a major flaw that involves copying and duplicating blocks. The Pattern Importer, when used, will take the pattern you paste in and generate unique ids for all the blocks in the pattern.

In addition, any images found in the pattern will be moved to the new site it is being used on. This allows you to copy images from patterns with ease from production to local or even between two hosted sites.
