Horizontal mirroring a rating scale


#1

Dear all,

is there a way to flip a rating scale along the horizontal axis, in order to present it in a fMRI experiment? If not, do you have any suggestion on how is possible to deal with this issue?

Thank you,
Antonio

For most PsychoPy visual stimuli, a negative size value mirror-flips the stimulus. There is no note about that in the rating scale documentation but worth trying?

Dear Michael,

thank you for the quick reply. I tried your solution but it does not solve the issue of mirroring the scale description or the labels.

Unfortunately, the rating scale object has only a flipVert argument but not a flipHoriz, which would easily solve the problem.

Thank you anyway

I am also having the same problem. I am curious if you found a workaround?
Thanks.

I assigned negative values to the extreme values of the rating scale and then I added two text object to display the mirrored labels at the two extremes.

Hope it helps
