I have the feeling this might be a very silly issue but here we go:
I’m using a CustomMouse in my experiment, for which I set up a TextStim as a pointer. The custom mouse works fine and I can move it around the screen as long as the TextStim units are set as ‘norm’. However if I try to specify the units as pixels, the cursor appears to be locked in a very tiny area close to the center of the screen. In theory this should not be related to the virtual box limits of the CustomMouse, as I specifically set them to be non existant. My default units in PsychoPy’s preferences are set as ‘norm’.
crosshair = visual.CustomMouse(win)
moving_pointer = visual.TextStim(win, text=‘x’, height=0.1, units=‘norm’)
locked_pointer = visual.TextStim(win, text=‘x’, height=30, units=‘pix’)
crosshair.pointer = locked_pointer
What am I missing here?
