    Thank you Justin for the great tutorial! The key is to not forget to immediately convert the reusable template after inserting it into your new page lest you mistakenly alter your “master” reusable template.

      I’d have to go back and check, but I don’t believe you can edit the reusable template when inserting it into your post. You’d have to convert it to make changes.

    I tested this, and you are right Justin! In earlier versions of Gutenberg, the Reusable block was not “locked” until you converted it to a regular block. The GB development team shines again!

    Do you have an example on setting your reusable block to the default when creating a post? My goal is when a user creates a post/cpt, their own reusable block is the layout they get (without needing to go to + add block).
