    Hello Tobias, hope you are fine. I have installed the plugin but I couldn't make it work when I try to add a question to a quiz. I hit the " add question from question bank", and search for a word; however, it doesn't do the search. Am I missing something? My moodle version is 3.11 and I also tried the question search plugin; and it does the same issue.

    Hello, thank you for the comment, please try the actual plugin version, the search options should now also work when adding questions to quiz.

    Hi Tobias, thank you for the update; it now works when adding questions to the quiz.

    Tobias, there is one more issue though; when on question bank I make a search, the page automatically switches to "view 1000 per page" everytime I make a search using Question Finder. Even if I set it to "show 20 per page", whenever I check the "search in the question bank" checkbox, the page refreshes to show all 1000 entires on the same page.

    Just to make it clear, the above issue I posted happens on question bank page; not on the frame when adding questions to quiz.
