new version 3.2

edited January 14 in OpenSesame

Hey OS, I'm trying out the new version for my experiment. Just a couple of little things so far. The login in the menu bar doesn't work yet (it may be my browser - I'm using Opera, but the links in the popup window don't work so I don't know if it's my browser.
When you use the sketchpad and have entered text, the new version moves all the text to one half of the pad (see attached). .

All the text in the form_text_display is shifted slightly (see attached). I'll see if I can fix it by adjusting my settings. I tried removing the
but that had no effect.

In a loop, a text field will not always show up in the same location (slightly higher/lower than the previous presentation). Sorry no picture of this.

Sometimes, my cursor disappears on the screen so I cannot see it.

The esc-q is not working all the time. It worked the first time but is not working now.

I'll keep testing it out and let you know if I can fix these things.

On a positive note, the logger worked!
Clarity for the sketchpad problem - I like to have my long sentences to start at the left instead of centred. This doesn't seem to be working. I can centre things and the sentences are correct but if I ask for 'not centred', the text shows on only one side of the sketchpad even if the
are removed.

  • bug in 3.2 - I was trying to correct the edit box in the sketchpad when the program had an internal error which kicked me out of the edit. I was then unable to access the edit. When I tried to access the backend from the General Script, my general script was blank. I cannot access the script on that page. Please help.

  • After closing and re-opening 3.2 (which is quite scary when there is nothing in the general script), the code came back - which is great.

  • Hi Patricia,

    Thanks for your feedback! Have you tested all of the above with the latest prerelease (3.2.0a24)?

    Cheers,

    There's much bigger issues in the world, I know. But I first have to take care of the world I know.

  • API: 2.1
    OpenSesame: 3.2.0a24
    Platform: nt

    This is the one I'm using and these are the small issues I've run into. I tried reducing the font size by 5 px - that helped a little but I would have to reduce it by 5-10 px more to prevent overlap and the participant would have trouble seeing it.

    Let me know if you need more information. All the other issues are still there.

    Also, I haven't input my inline script yet because I'm trying to find some documentation on python coding in OpenSesame. I'm trying to sum columns and calculate things like a handedness quotient and then display the result on a sketchpad. I cannot seem to find good examples online here on how I would do this. Most are for analyzing an experiment and response times, etc., not questionnaire responses.

  • You can find python coding documentation under manual/Python on osdoc.cogsci.nl

  • I will put these in the wishlist from now on. Thanks for the info on the manual. This discussion can also be closed unless you need me to troubleshoot something on my end.
