How can I download data?

Hello,
I've followed the instructions found here: https://www.quantconnect.com/blog/use-api-file-provider/, but I can't put data in my library because, unlike the video, when I select the symbol there isn't any download panel on the right side of the page.

What am I missing?

Only some data is available for download. I was confused a bit at first too, but if you don't see a download button then that's because it's not available for free download. When you develop locally (as far as I can tell), you don't have as much access to the free data compared to running your algo from the Algorithm Lab.

Edit: For example, you should see an 'Add to Cart' button here:
