You may have already used the Section Block come with WordPress. It display content in multiple columns, with blocks added to each column. This is the most common layout block we use when designing a page. For example, a three-column layout with text like the one below.
It’s good, but it’s not enough. When we need more complex designs or want to adjust how it looks under different devices, it can’t help. Therefore, we have introduced an improved Section Block.

When the 33/33/33 layout is selected, you will see three columns appear in the editor. Each column has an Add button, which you can use to add new blocks to the column. After selecting the section block, the sidebar will appear with block options through which you can fully customize your Section block.
