My site uses Atmosphere Pro, and was set up long before Gutenberg.
Recently, I've created a new Gutenberg site, from scratch, and really like it. I'm using it with the Sample Genesis Theme.
I'm wondering if I should expect problems using Gutenberg with Atmosphere Pro. I read the Atmosphere Pro page, and it makes no reference to Gutenberg.
I'm also using Portfolio Pro with my Atmosphere Pro site, and would want to continue, as I quite like how that works. I also like the Atmosphere Pro home page, but have had a lot of formatting problems with interior pages, which is where I'd like to use Gutenberg.
I've also installed Classic Editor, which I understand is helpful in case Gutenberg doesn't workout for the conversion.
So I'm hoping someone can tell me of possible problems using Gutenberg with Atmosphere Pro, or if it should be a smooth transition?

I don't believe StudioPress has updated Atmosphere Pro with Gutenberg yet as I don't see it in the demo code. There isn't a menu item that says "Gutenberg Optimized" like the ones they have updated.

Thank you, Anita.
Sounds like I'll need to convert to another theme if I want to use Gutenberg.

@memerunner Looking at your website, I can see you using Authority Pro, which is Gutenberg enabled - https://demo.studiopress.com/authority/, or Breakthrough Pro - https://demo.studiopress.com/breakthrough/.

However, I'm using Atmosphere Pro, not Authority Pro. That's what it says in Appearance > Themes.
Is there perhaps a connection between Atmosphere Pro and Authority Pro?

You can use any Genesis Theme with Gutenberg.
Genesis base supports Gutenberg as well as any theme you buy anywhere. The base CSS and JS for the blocks are included by WordPress. They have nothing to do with Genesis.
The "Genesis Gutenberg Ready" themes here on the framework mean that the CSS (the look and feel to that particular theme) overwrite the Gutenberg blocks to create more coherency between the theme and the Gutenberg blocks.
It's unlikely that you would ever notice the difference between the two if you are not a designer using the inspector because the Genesis Framework Themes are very light handed on design.
All of the themes work fine with Gutenberg. None of them have CSS or JS issues that will negatively effect you.
You can read about Studio Presses road map to enhance the experience for us here.
Also, you can learn more about what Brian Gardner suggests you need to look out for as far as customizing the theme to work with Gutenberg here.

Thank you Joseph. Much appreciate you expanding on that. The links are great.
