You might wonder what’s so exciting about that, since Gutenberg already has a column block. So why not just use this one? Well, if you’ve ever tried to create a 20:80 layout with the core columns block and seen how it looks in email, you know why!

Newsletter Glue were unable to convert the web HTML to email HTML for the core columns block. It worked relatively well for 50:50 layouts, but as soon as you tried to create a 20:80 or even a 33:33:33 layout, everything broke down very quickly.

With the new columns block, you’re clearly more flexible when creating 2- and 3-column email layouts. To find it, type /ng or /column and search for NG: Columns.

For starters, they focused on optimizing the column layouts so they don’t break in emails. The plan is to add more features in the future!
