I've been searching years for something like this to come out and finally! A practical and functional plugin that enhances gutenburg usability. How can not one single plugin out of thousands allow us to create 1 custom block out of a group of blocks? And with one single click? The built in re-usable blocks to me are useless. Thank you to whoever created this! You are a true genius.
