Can't get Pavlovia to fetch a position [x, y] from a $variable

So I want the position of my words to vary according to what is specified in the .xlsx-file:

However, these words don’t appear during the experiment, it’s just a blank screen. When typing static coordinates in the second screenshot, everything works fine. What is going wrong here?

My repository can be found here: Sign in · GitLab

Kind regards!

Try having your x and y coordinates in separate columns.

I’m having the exact same problem! It still doesn’t work when I fetch the X and Y coordinates from separate variables.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

The solution posted above fixed the problem for me. Maybe something is wrong with your syntax? Here are some screenshots to compare:

Ah, I had accidentally put a “$” in the GUI for position. Removing that fixed the problem.

Thank you so much!
