Small Query on Multiple Choice Form Item

edited June 2016 in OpenSesame

Hi guys,
I was just wondering if there is a way to have a response option that is more than one line

here answer A, B, C are more than one line but if I hit enter when typing them in the response option of the form_multiple_choice item it obviously creates a new answer for each line i.e answer A would have four answers
1
1 2
1 2 3
1 2 3 4

    Hi,

    As can be seen here; http://osdoc.cogsci.nl/forms/textinput-functions/, there is a return_accepts parameter (set to True by default), that decides whether pressing enter will close the form or not. You can set this to False and have participants proceed by clicking a button with the mouse.

    Cheers,

    Josh

    Hi Roderick,

    If i read it correctly you want to add breaks while defining the answer options? Not when the participants must answer them?

    In that case you could html's line break tag:

    1 Answer A<br>1<br>1 2<br>1 2 3<br>1 2 3 4
    2 Answer B<br>1 2 3 4 5<br>2 3 4 5<br>3 4 5<br>4 5
    3 Answer etc.
    

    Best,
    Laurent
