Poodll Anywhere in TinyMCE looks like this:
However there are times when the icons simply do not appear. This is a common support related enquiry that we get here at Poodll HQ. Well lets explain it. Assume that the icons will always show, except under the conditions following…
Reason #1: File attachment restrictions
Poodll Anywhere can be used in almost all areas of Moodle where there is an html editor. But when the html area does not allow file attachments, Poodll will be unavailable and you will not see it on the toolbar. This is usually true of the essay question type.

Site admin -> Plugins -> Text Editors -> Atto HTML Editor -> Poodll Anywhere(Atto)
Site admin -> Plugins -> Text Editors -> TinyMCE HTML Editor -> Poodll Anywhere(TinyMCE)
