Problem with entering non-ascii characters in text input form with psychoPy backend
I have encountered what seems like a bug when creating custom text input forms using OpenSesame with psychoPy backend. When entering any special character in a text input field (e.g. äöüß), the program ends with
TypeError: unsupported operand type(s) for &: 'float' and 'int'
The program ends as soon as the character is entered and I cannot avoid this by defining key_filters. I also have not found a function to set text_input fields to UTF-8. This is with psychoPy backend, with xpyriment no errors occur. A working simple program recreating this problem on my computer is below.
Is this known or is there a solution (besides using another backend)?
