    Hi Polaris Lee, I have tested "Mynotes" plugin on Fordson theme in moodle v3.4 and it is working fine.

    The problem is raised due to some HTML elements placing. I have found that an HTML element "back to top" is placed on the same place where "Mynotes" icon is appears.
    You can fix the issue by customize the css for either "back to top" link or "Mynotes" icon. Hope this will be work for you.

    Hi Polaris Lee, could you please tell me the plugin release number? if this is V3.4 r1, that support moodle version 3.4 and 'Mynotes' plugin will be installed without any error. I have installed this plugin on Fordson theme on moodle v3.4 successfully.
    Please mention a short information regarding application environment means moodle version, database system (mysql, mariadb, etc) and database engine also.

    Hi there,

    Is there any way to make edits to the notes plugin? We would like to dock notes within a container in a unique position on the course page. How and is this achievable?

    Hello Gautam, we have a client who wants to use your great My Notes Plugin on Totara 11 (which utilizes core code from Moodle versions 3.2.5), but encountering a bug which our developer documented on gitHub at The My Notes Block only has functionality in "Edit Mode." In regular mode the block icon appears in the lower right, but nothing happens when it is clicked. Do you have a time frame when a fix could be posted?

    Hi Gautum, Thanks for your 'Mynotes' Plugin, it's a great tool to let the learners enter notes to specific tasks. It seems so far THE only really useful tool to keep notes. We're currently implementing Totara 11 (perhaps upgrade to T12 also). I have some comments, which would improve this tool even more. I wonder, if you're planning to develop your tool further.
    1. What id the differentiation between 'Course' and 'Module'? We're using the plugin in Totara.
    2. We're using other terms for our trainings. Would be great, we could change the name when installing the plug-in.
    3. Would it be possible to adapt the layout / colours according to the other editing blocks (here in Totara), to align it to our website style?
    4. Would be great, if the user could export the notes or directly save them e.g. to another drive.
    Any adaptations in this direction would be very much appreciated.
    Thanks a lot.
