In Coder v.2021 1.4, is there supposed to be an output field? Or does one have to look at the Runner to see the output? I’m using Windows 10 and there’s no output field. My current work-around is to keep the runner window open beside the coder window, so I can look at the runner window to see the output. (Note that in the coder preferences “show output” is, and has always been checked.)

Hi,

Stdout in the Runner window is the terminal where all output (print statements etc.) shows up during when you run your experiment via Psychopy.
An alternative is to run your Psychopy directly from the command line using python exp_name.py.

That’s a pity. Of course PsychoPy is geared towards creating experiments, but the output window was useful for checking variables, basic analyses. Now we have to switch back and forth between two program windows.

So here is a feature request: can we have the output-within-shelf back?
