      Note 1: In theme "boost" the "Add a block" link is moved into the flat navigation drawer. It appears only if editing mode is on.
      Note 2: To be able to "Assign roles" in a block you need to create roles that are assignable in the block context, by default there are none.

      On different pages try adding, configuring, deleting blocks and changing permissions in the blocks. Make sure blocks are not displayed on the block configuration pages and you can always return to the page where you've been before.
      (Before the fix the "Back" link did not work for dashboard blocks - it would return to the profile page)

      From courses and categories management page try changing permissions or checking roles for the categories (dropdown under "Edit" link next to the category name). Make sure you can return to the same page.

      Description

      The add blocks menu really takes up a huge amount of space when editing is on.

      Can we replace it with an icon dropdown similar to the gear (except an add block icon)?
