OMG. How could Gutenberg have been released, ever, without this simple, little feature?! WordPress should pay millions to integrate this plugin in the next release! Seriously. Took me years to understand the “logic” of how to move Gutenberg metaboxes from below the content to the right, into the sidebar. And back. Together with this little plugin, the Resizable Editor Sidebar, this semi-ugly UX of Gutenberg begins to shine. Finally. Thank you ever so much for all the efforts! As of today, only 900 downloads. Unbelievable. Should easily grow to 9.000, 90.000, 900.000, 9.000.000. Let’s spread the word!

I have ACF fields in the sidebar and a wider bar accommodates them much better, thanks 🙂 I’m OK with the ad when you resize, but have you thought about an add free paid version?

Awesome plugin, no need to setup anything, just activate and go. Also saves your last resize so you do not need to set it up every time you refresh the page
