Bug report: Slider component position & clickability

OS (e.g. Win10): Mac OX 10.14.4
PsychoPy version (e.g. 1.84.x): 3.1.0
**Standard Standalone? YES

I have identified 2 problems with the builder slider component, both when in use as radio buttons:

a) when you set the stimPos to update on repeat (i.e. variable), this does not translate over to coder – the script does not represent this and simply has [0,0] pos in the original initialization, but then does not put in code before the trial runs. TextStims whose pos is similarly determined DO update

b) the click ability of the radio buttons is unreliable / compromised: when you turn off force-end routine, you can see that the red circle sometimes appears to the side of the white circle you clicked, and the clickable space of the radio button itself is not quite right – it appears you cannot always click ALL of the area of the button, but only a small subsection.

Thanks
Marc

Update: I have since realised that the second issue about clickability can be resolved by changing the granularity parameter: Granularity needs to be 1. Otherwise the radio button behaves like a slider on a rating scale, hence the ‘in-between’ positions of the selection
