For some reason it does not work for me (or I miss something) : when adding some Markdown in a text block, nothing is showing. I just found the button but it gives The editor has encountered an unexpected error.

It kinda works, but when you try to edit classic block things get ugly. But it’s fine for creating new post with Gutenberg in markdown mode. If I’m forced to use Gutenberg that will be the way.
