What do you mean by the scratch blocks tool? The Scratchblocks on the forums still exist.

They mean in the editor, there used to be a guide which showed you what each block did. It isn't here anymore.

Well, in many programming languages, you have to go online and check the documentation. In some code editors, typing the name would give you a very rough definition, but when it comes to computer programming it's usually either memory or documentation.

I guess they're trying to teach people how to read code documentation, since it is a very important skill.

You can still download the 2.0 editor the blocks all have the same function that were in 1.4 and 2.0

Yeah, the tool was helpful for new scratchers. It was removed when Scratch 3.0 came about. But still, it was an important part of the editor and it was helpful for new scratchers, so they ought to bring it back.

I think the “Help” drop-down option in the editor was probably never added into Scratch 3. If you do need information about those blocks, you can download the Scratch 2 offline editor and see the help menus there.

This below is my signature, and it automatically appears below all of my posts.
Here's a project with FAQ about more than 10 common questions with Scratch 3.

Again, in my opinion, it was removed to teach people how to read documentation. Knowing how to do that is very important in programming.

You can always download the 2.0. offline editor from here.

Any feature missing from 3.0 that was in 2.0 wasn't “removed,” it just “wasn't added.” When the Scratch Team made Scratch 3.0, they had to completely reprogram it from the ground up. They are still working on adding new features, fixing bugs, and stuff like that. It's very possible that they just haven't gotten around to adding it yet.

Im pretty sure this is the case… Yes, I agree. scratch team must program scratch 3.0 from the ground up. Im sure it will come again soon

I personally don't really want it, though. It just feels more natural to read documentation.

That's just my opinion.

But yeah, I'm assuming that something like it would be added back in in the future. I guess they are still smoothing out some of the other stuff.

I make quality content. I believe that many scratchers who are famous deserve none of their fame. I hope that everyone realizes this issue.

I'm not sure if there was a conscious decision to remove it, but we have tried to add a lot of useful tutorials as a way of getting help: https://scratch.mit.edu/ideas

If you think the help tool would be useful to have still, why not bring it up in the Suggestions forum?
