  • (2020-03-04) Hosa Dokha: I luv this extension but it has 1 flaw that is hindering me.. so basically i dont like the floating icon near the highlited word i want it at the far end..so I put in (the right X axis) 850 px in the settings.. its great when the test is in the left or center half but when its near to the right the icon doesnt appear at all.. SO I SUGGEST that the developer tweak it so that when it reaches its max length, it appears at the edge of the screen
