The Block Editor offers several tools (Edit Block Definition, Block Editor, Block authoring palette, parameter properties labels,(distance label, distance description, parameter name, length) value set (dist type, dist value list, list)) making it easy to design exactly what you need. Discover the Block Authoring Palette with three tabs for versatile styling; parameters, (point parameter, linear parameter, polar XY parameter, rotation parameter, alignment parameter, flip parameter, visibility parameter base point parameter), actions (move action, scale action, stretch action, polar stretch action, rotate action, flip action, array action, lookup action) and parameter sets (point move, linear move, linear stretch, linear array, linear move pair, linear stretch pair, polar move, polar stretch).
