Block toolbar

After adding a Columns Block, you’ll find these useful tools in the block toolbar to help you customize and organize your columns effectively.

Transform to

The ‘Transform to’ button lets you change a Columns block into a ‘Group’ block. This feature allows you to adjust the layout and appearance of your content with a simple click, ensuring your writing looks just the way you want.

Drag & Move

Use the six-dot icon to drag your block, or the up and down arrow buttons let you move a block one position higher or lower.


The ‘Alignment’ tool lets you adjust the width of your columns. Simply click the icon, and a menu will appear with options. You can set your columns to no alignment, max 1200px wide, or full width.

Vertical alignment

You can change the vertical alignment of the content in the Columns Block by selecting ‘Align top’, ‘Align middle’, or ‘Align bottom’.

More Options

The More options menu represented by three vertical dots on the far right of the toolbar gives you more features such as the ability to duplicate, remove, or edit your block as HTML.

Block settings

Access the block settings from the editor sidebar, visible on the right side panel when you click on the block.

Number of columns

You can set the number of columns, ranging from 1 to 6, to best fit your content layout.
