WP Community – How to restore access to revisions?

Like made site developers, I need to access and restore past revisions to replace a later revision. I cannot find a way to do this in the new blocks editor, and I now need to do so.

This revisions restoration function used to be part of the standard (classic) WP admin interface, displayed as html code, side-by-side, with a slider control for stored revisions. This method is references in this WP article: https://projectdmc.org/support/article/revisions/. Sadly, this pre-blocks article is out of date.

The classic revisions restore function apparently has vanished from the blocks editor. Maybe all my searching of the blocks interface and WP documentation has been flawed, but I believe the function of revisions access and restoration is missing in the new Wp admin interface.

If so, giant ouch!

If I’m mistaken, glad to hear it, and please show me how to restore past revisions. In short, where can I find access to all the past page revisions being stored so capably?

Is there a toggle in the WP settings somewhere? Do I need a plugin? I downloaded and installed the plugin, WP Revisions Control, but that only controls how many revisions are stored. It does not provide any direct access to the stored revisions, not as in classic, or not that I can find. Is there another plugin that enables access to revisions and a means to restore them?

Hope you can help me and the wider WP community. I ask because I surely can’t be the only site developer who’s tired of having to redo work because I cannot undo a goof in blocks that use to be so easy to undo in the classic editor.

Some wisdom, please?
