I moved paragraph by paragraph through one of my wife's posts providing editorial feedback. While doing this I was pleasantly surprised by its Google Docs comparable implementation. It did exactly what I had hoped it would. After just under an hour I completed my editorial review. I called my wife over to walk her through her part and that's where the trouble began. I brought up the saved post. It was impossible to read the comments. I'm a web developer. It appeared to me the issue was CSS related. I had made many comments. The comments, appearing on the right, were indiscernible with no text being shown. It looked almost like a comb. I tried clicking on them. I tried clicking on the highlights. I disabled every other plugin to eliminate CSS conflicts. I tried 3 other browsers to rule that out. Some browsers (e.g. Firefox) were worse. I fooled with it for about a half hour or so and even attempted to debug the DOM and CSS. The idea behind the plugin is excellent. Google Docs style commenting is ideal for an editorial workflow. Everything worked during my initial review. At that time, I was thrilled. It was the loss of work that affected my rating. I'm sure my comments were saved (I saw so in the DOM) but the display issue made them inaccessible and thus unusable. If this were reliable, it'd have given it an excellent rating.

I added more than 10 comments and then I can't view any of it. There are many issues that need fixing. While writing the comment, the comment box keeps "flickering".

This is exactly what I was looking for. This plugin works flawlessly. Great job.
