OS (e.g. Win10): Ubuntu 16.04/Windows 7
PsychoPy version (e.g. 1.84.x): 1.85.3, 1.85.6 respectively
Standard Standalone? (y/n): neurodebian install/standalone (standard)
What are you trying to achieve?: Our facility has the scan trigger set as the ‘caret’ character, so I’m trying to set up a simple experiment that reads the caret symbol in psychopy
What did you try to make it work?: I used the builder to make a scan_trigger keyboard response component and added the caret
^ as an entry for the allowed keys. I would start the experiment and hit
shift+6 to get the caret key
What specifically went wrong when you tried that?: When the experiment started it would site at the scan trigger page and wouldn’t recognize the caret symbol.
Here’s a link to the code via github for reproducing the behavior.
