Full Width Group & Cover blocks are unusable as they don’t respect Gutenberg nesting rules #965
I've created this issue to highlight the current problems with Group & Cover blocks as it's a critical issue that prevents to create "beautiful web pages and advanced layouts". A PR by @allancole is currently in progress (#701).
As stated in the WP 5.3 About page, "the new Group block lets you easily divide your page into colorful sections". Currently, this isn't the case as Twenty Twenty is breaking Gutenberg nesting rules:
It should be easy for the user to replicate inside a group what it's possible to do outside a group.
Contrary to Twenty Nineteen which respects Gutenberg nesting rules, Twenty Twenty would create a bad precedent on how users create layouts with Gutenberg blocks.
Same issue with the full width Cover block that doesn't work out of the box. A group must be inserted inside the cover to constrain the text.
