On a Mac using PsychoPy2 Version 1.86.5, how to I allow typed sentences or paragraphs as responses to questions AND have the ‘return’ key be the allowed key for “end routine” from the Builder?
I have this in my Self-Paced Reading demo
I have a keyboard response looking for return above the textbox
That’s a fairly old version, Textbox components have been improved a lot since then, including having fewer conflicts with Keyboard components. In the latest version, you should be able to just add a Keyboard component with only
'return' in its allowed keys field and it won’t impede upon the textbox getting typed responses.
If you don’t want to listen for
'return' until a certain point, you can control this by setting the start time of your Keyboard component to be a condition (e.g.
"sought phrase" in textbox.text)
Sorry, I hadn’t noticed that you were referring to a pre 2020 version of PsychoPy. The code in my Brookes Template 2020 (age routine) or Free Recall demo for a free text response might work.
