chore: Fix: Paragraph block isRTL may not be boolean #18526

jorgefilipecosta commented Nov 14, 2019


If the block editor provider does not provide an isRTL setting, isRTL may be undefined.
ParagraphRTLToolbar returns isRTL && (...), so it may return undefined making the block crash.
It is possible to see this problem by opening the widget block screen and trying to use a paragraph, as the widgets screen does not provide an isRTL setting.
Widgets screen should provide isRTL that will be fixed in a different PR, but the paragraph block should not rely on isRTL being available, so this PR still fixes a problem.

How has this been tested?

I opened the widget blocks screen.
I added a paragraph, wrote something, and verified the paragraph did not crash.

Without this straightforward change, it is hard to test the widgets screen in other PR's, so I am going to merge this. If there is any suggestion, anyone would like to make, please leave a comment, and I will open a follow-up PR.
