This is expected to be the new WordPress component that will completely change the way the content on your site is working. The idea of developers is to make it easier for novice users who can hardly handle content on their site through HTML or CSS. The new functionality will allow adding certain block elements and shaping the visual view without any difficulty.

The more conservative of change without much thought would be glad to regain the former look of the classic wordpress editor. For their joy, there is a solution now, and it is simple…

wp_dequeue_style(‘wp-block-library-theme’);
}
add_action(‘wp_print_styles’, ‘remove_gutenberg_styles’, 10);
