Hey @musicdoc1 head to the three dots in the top right corner of the editing screen in the block editor and click it. When it opens you’ll see the first option is “Top toolbar”.
After you enable it, the block’s formatting toolbar, of whatever block you’re using, will remain at the top of the screen rather than appearing at the top of the block itself. The top toolbar is stationary, so is visible all the time. Hope that helps.
