The screenshot you're showing has the blocks enabled. The problem is that you're on the Title block, which doesn't provide a sidebar setting.

I have to admit this is a recurring theme, that I see across first-time Volto users. Users are confused by the empty sidebar and the icon in the sidebar. cc @sneridagh

I got a little confused around this too when using Volto for the first time (and it still gets me occasionally now). It isn't really clear that you have a block selected just from looking at the sidebar.

Thank you for clearing that up. :man_facepalming:

I realize that some of these things are not very intuitive for my exhausted brain. Perhaps they could be improved in the long term.


Thank you @fredvd , you captured most of the feedback I had in mind.
