    by the way: I'm using your plugin on a Moodle 2.7.1 (Build: 20140714)

    I'm running the exact same Moodle version and can't find any problems here. Could you post a screen shot of your Atto toolbar somewhere, so I could have a look at it?

    Hi Nicolas,

    I sent you a private message so you can login to my Moodle sandbox.

    I use Moodle 2.7.1. Atto is the default text editor and I have the same problem as Fritz Richter has. I manually added corr = corrections to the toolbar icon list and made no other changes at all. Still, the correction icon will not appear on the toolbar.

    Corrections worked fine, until I updated to the latest version (20140724) yesterday. Now, the icons are missing on the toolbar.

    Sorry there was indeed a bug with the previous version. I updated the plugin just now and this is fixed.

    Nicolas, thanks for your quick action. I updated the plugin and the icons are back again!

    Just a simple note on usage:

    After a student wrote an essay, I wanted to evaluate this by using the regular "Make comment or override mark" option. I copied the student's essay and pasted it in the comment area. Yet, the correction option did not work. The button was not clickable at all. Then, I highlighted the whole text and formatted it as "Paragraph". Only then did the correction option work. I do not whether this is a specific case, but I still wanted to share it in case someone else faces the same problem.

    Thanks Hakan for this insight. I'll look into this when I'll get to work on an updated version of this plugin.

    Hi Nicolas,
    When I install the plugin, I can see it on the toolbar but it's quite different than the one on the screenshot and it does not work.... Please have a look at this image

    Hi Ammar,

    Indeed, it looks like the plugin can't find the button icons. Did you try to empty your Moodle's caches and reload the page?
