Can't use it. Nothing happens either Alt+C or Alt+T on a local PDF or in Microsoft teams (iFrame i know).

Mr. SSD April 3rd, 2023

I usually don't comment much or reply much either on most extensions, but this app is actually really really nice and helpful, I'm not a bot or an ai talking right now, but overall you guys did a great job coding it and it's really good, it's helped me so many times with so many tasks I can't even begin to explain, and the best part is, it's completely FREE, honestly you can even ask people to pay for it, I've told most of my friends to get it and most of them did get it. That's all I wanted to say, keep up the good work!
