We recommend turning off the full screen and enabling the top toolbar before you start editing, to do this click the 3 vertical dots at the top right of the screen, then uncheck “Fullscreen Mode” and check “Top Toolbar”

To create a new block, click the “+” icon at the top left of the editor, and search for the type of block you want. The most common is “Paragraph” or “Image”

To add a block in between an existing block, hover your mouse between the 2 blocks and you will see a blue “+” icon appear, click this and choose your block type.

To rearrange blocks, you can click inside the block you want to move, and a “grabbable” handle will appear to the left which you can use to move it up and down the page. Alternatively, there is an up and down arrow that you can click to move the block 1 space at a time.
