How do I move a block?
Blocks are designed to be easy to move around in a post. This means you can write up paragraphs or add images and then decide to re-order them without a lot cut and paste effort and without losing any formatting that you’ve already done.

The up and down arrow icons on the left side of the block can be used to move a block up and down in your document.
Drag & Drop
