    I have absolutely the same issue that HUGO ENRIQUE SARMIENTO OSORIO has. I have created a template, able to preview it, background, all other images and texts are there, but when I add the certificate to the course it comes up blank. It looks like the plugin doesn't work properly now.

    Seems to be working well in Moodle 3.9 except it does not correctly recognize data from custom course fields that are drop down menus. They simply show as a 1 in both the reposistion wizard and also when tested with a user account ... still shows only the number one for field of study (ex: accounting) and Instructional method (ex: Group Internet Based).

    Would be great to find a work around.

    Hi Guys,

    I appreciate that this plugin is not yet supported by moodle 3.9 yet but wanted to feedback issues on 3.9 due to a post here saying it works fine.

    just tried this plugin on moodle 3.9 and seems to be some issues that i'm experiencing. When applying a background and clicking save and continue the background image jumps up over the save buttons with a gap at the bottom, i then have to use my browser back button to return, however i have to delete the background image and insert it to realign it when going into re-position elements. Then this keeps happening after clicking save and continue and i have to repeat the steps of deleting and reinserting.

    Also when i inserted the grade element it does not show at all, it did in the beginning but after inserting other elements it doesn't seem to want to be added.

    I am running with the latest version of adaptable theme and Moodle 3.9.1 (Build: 20200713).

    Lastly thank you for your hard work and look forward to 3.9 version of this plugin so i can give it a whirl again.

    Jarl please read and please ask your questions on the support forum, not here. I wish I could turn off messaging here actually and make people use the forum.

    I'm using version 3.6.1 of this plugin in my moodle 3.6.1 installation. I can't explain why, starting from few day ago, all the certificate are printed without images. Opening the pdf with Acrobat Reader I got an error message that say the pdf is corrupted. I didn't change anything in my moodle system. Can anyone suggest how to find what is causing this error?

    Is there a way to concatenate fields?
    So I can have a text + date on the same line. And have the full sentence centered?

    I have the same issue with custom_cert. We often use the field "email others" to put in there a special Mail-Address to check the certificates. Since 01.10.2020 it doesn't work.
    We use as theme Edwiser RemUI & as course format edwiser forms. The last update of the custom_cert plugin is frim March, so i guess maybe it´s not a failure in the plugin ... any suggestions???
    Thanks, bernd
