Synced pattern or non-synced pattern you Can see right here it's not synced that Means that whatever I've created I can Use in a page or a template area and if I make changes to that it will only make The changes to that location If I want to create a sync pattern then I can create a new one and it will say Down here to keep all patterns instances In sync when I say yes then that means When I create the pattern whatever I Change to that pattern will now be Changed all across the whole website we Also have this area where you can now Edit pages right from within this area So these are all the pages that I have And if I want to edit any of them I can Simply click on it again get an overview Of what's going on on this page and then I can make the changes These changes are being made on and These are being updated immediately Going back to the overall pages I can Also create a new page right from here If I want to Now let's take a look about being able To preview a block theme in the site Editor before it was calling a classic Theme you could always preview that Without activating it on your site but That wasn't exactly true with full site Editor theme and so they've made some Changes and let me show you what that Looks like if you go into appearance
