This function should be by default on the WordPress editor... My problem is that used with ACF PRO is slowing down my machine very much. Tested locally and on production. Just uninstalled waiting for a new release.

It's tiny and just works!! No need to setup, to read documentation etc. One suggestion for further improvements: display hidden blocks as dimmed. Thanks a lot!

Not working on a nearly clear site with generatepress and woocommerce installed. Throwing error at loading page in the backend. Also nothing is visible in the frontend then. After deactivating everything works again

Incredible! This plugin does exactly what I want it to do! I can't believe Wordpress' vanilla functionality doesn't have this built-in!
