    i am trying to find the location where to set the default editor to the block editor. I have been importing wordpress posts and the standard editor is always the tiny one. Is there an option to set the editor to block editor even before importing?
    Thx a lot for your help

    Imported posts always use the Tiny WYSIWYG editor, when creating a new one you can choose the editor you like.
    Also, there is no way to convert posts written in one editor to another one.

    Thank you Bob, your answer helps to clarify. However, your block editor does not even understand simple html tags such as <h2>, <h3>, <p>, etc., which makes it impossible to use the block editor, when content is pasted in pure html code. Maybe you can take this as a feature that might help many in the future. I guess that many wordpress user are part of your clients and want to find a way to easily convert wordpress pages.

    This is the first version of the editor. It’s a good solution to write a post from scratch, especially for the documentation websites.  The conversion functionality etc .. is the song of the future, development costs many hours of work and money. For now, we are focusing on other features, but will probably come back to the editor in soon.
