Shortcode Not Working -Shortcode Showing Instead of Content

While testing many short-codes all at once I run into a self-made problem that could happen to anyone. When pasting shortcodes the WordPress block-editor applied code-blocks automatically. This happened on multiple pages I was creating quickly and on visiting the front-end I found none of the short-codes worked.

Example of a WordPress shortcode in a code-block.

You can tell the shortcode in the image is in a code-block because it has an outline. If you see this on your site, you need to remove the code-block and try again.
