Can you please provide videos showcasing your plugin??


I already love the plugin due to its features, but I ran into a problem. Creating a top bar button seems to work fine. However, as soon as I start playing the game, the button disappears. And I have no idea how to fix it.

I just fixed the button saving issue. Make a copy of your scripts before updating, because the plugin doesn’t import from previously created buttons and uses a new saving method.
