    @Rodel, @Napoleon,

    Could you bring this issue to the bug tracker? (link at top of this page) It will be easier to work things out from there.

    HI Marion Chardon, Nicolas Dunand
    The version of Moodle that I use is 3.10, and I have not been able to view the documents and neither the annotations, I would like to know if you have any solution?

    Hi, Nicolas Dunand and Marion Chardon. Nice to know of yours. I need to ask something important. The original plugin, assignfeedback_editpdf, generates files called combined.pdf that use up disk space. How can be done to eliminate them without damaging the system? That plugin is good but it consumes too much disk space. Thanks.

    Hi, does this plugin allow you to move a comment around the page after it has been added? Thanks

    I'm not able to view the annotation option for the quiz type of activity. it's only showing in assignment type of activity.
    How to enable it for all types of activities?
    I'm using Moodle version 3.10.

    Hi. I'm getting an error message on assignments when this plugin is enabled. It throws a "exception - argument 1 passed to assign::calculate_properties() must be an instance of stdclass, null given, called in [dirroot]/mod/assign/locallib.php on line 1705" error. I'm using Moodle 3.10 (Build 20201211)

    @Krishna Yadav, this is a plugin of type "assignment feedback" and therefore only provides features within an assignment.

    @Noel Green, if this issue persists please refer to the Bug tracker link above and create an issue there if needed. We'll then be able to discuss this more easily on Github to find a solution.

    Hello, I installed the plugin in moodle 3.11 and when activating the option of qualification with rubric, the floating window is paralyzed, someone else has the same problem? Will there be a version of the plugin compatible with moodle 3.11?

    Hi Paula. No idea. They launched that plugin and there is no answer to the problems it generates. It is very good, but troublesome. The detail of the space it consumes, exaggerated, is serious. If you know of something, let them know.

    Hi Luis, this is the issue we are experiencing:

    After installing this plugin, when creating a new assignment in any of my courses, the following error occurred:

    Exception - Argument 1 passed to assign::calculate_properties() must be an instance of stdClass, null given, called in [dirroot]/mod/assign/locallib.php on line 1705

    We are unable to create any assingments after the plugin is installed, which is obviously a big issue. We wish to use the annotate pdf plugin so disabling isnt an option.
