Wow, https://www.drupal.org/project/drupal/issues/2859197 (and related) was painful to discover - what's the best alternative in combination with layout builder ? #drupal #wtf

Related, I'm getting the feeling that after 8.6 is a good time to open 9 and start consolidating and fix a bunch of small, subtle annoying bugs, because let's face it, D7 is still way more stable to setup things. But that might just be us (our company) of course.

Depends on what bugs you're running into specifically - you should be able to place Custom Blocks in Layout Builder, although hooks you may be used to like hook_block_alter will not run (since no Block entity is displayed).

For inline creation of Custom Blocks, check out https://www.drupal.org/project/drupal/issues/2948064 … - it aims to solve content creation, revisioning, and translation by not creating "real" entities, and instead storing field values in the Block Plugin configuration.

Bugs not related to LB (experimental, very aware of that) .. we have a custom D7 profile based on panopoly which is just perfect when it comes to authoring, even for complex sites, D8 is miles away from that experience.

Please help get that docs patch committed!

Added my two cents to the issue where we might need additional documentation besides the class.
