Text wrapping in sketchpad textline -- screen edge workaround not working
To achieve text wrapping in sketchpad textline, I set the resolution smaller than the monitor and hoped it would wrap when it reached the edge. This workaround to the lack of text wrapping for the textline object was suggested in this thread:
However, I'm not getting the text wrapping at the edge of the screen.
Details about my setup and experiment:
I have the resolution set to 1024 x 768 in OpenSesame, and I'm using the xpyriment back-end (also tried psycho with similar results). My monitor is 1920 x 1080, and I'm using a Windows 7 PC. I'm displaying survey items in a text box on a sketchpad. The sketchpad is in a sequence in a loop, and the survey items are listed in a column in the loop. When the items display, they run past the edge of the resolution defined in OpenSesame and in a few cases (long items), they run past the edge of the actual monitor and some of the words aren't displayed.
Also, I posted about this in the thread above, but it's marked solved, and I didn't get a reply, so I thought I'd better post a new comment. My apologies if that was the wrong approach
Thanks for any advice you have!
