The paragraph block allows you to craft content easily and is the default block type for text added to the editor.
You can write your content like a regular document and each paragraph will automatically be turned into a block behind the scenes.
To reveal the block toolbar, you can click on the block and the toolbar will display. Each block comes with unique toolbar icons and specific user controls that allow you to manipulate the block right in the editor.
The preformatted block offers basic formatting options in its toolbar:
Clear Formatting (EXT)
You can choose the text and background colors for your paragraph. Selecting proper colors will help you to call attention to important content with a nice contrast for readability purposes.
A block-specific toolbar will appear whenever you select the paragraph block. Three of the options are for the block’s alignment, right, center, and left. Choosing the right or left will allow you to place another block alongside the paragraph block moreover picking center will return the block to its default, taking up the full width of the post or page content.
This control offers left, right, and center alignment responsive classes that can be used to realign the block’s position with the same viewport width breakpoints as the grid system. Basically, they work just like the usual alignment classes, except that they have suffixes that represent the breakpoint from which they come to effect.
This control allows you to change the paragraph’s font size, either with relative percentages or down to the pixel. You can also add a drop cap to your paragraph.
In addition to the options found in the block’s toolbar, you may locate the block specific settings in the editor sidebar panel. Clicking on the cog icon next to the publish button will toggle the visibility of this panel.
The advanced tab lets you add a CSS class to your block, allowing you to write custom CSS and apply styles to the block as you see fit.
