OS (e.g. Win10): Mac OS Catalina
PsychoPy version (e.g. 1.84.x): PsychoPy 2020.1.3
What are you trying to achieve?: Advance the screen (end a routine) with a keyboard response
What did you try to make it work?:
We tried to advance the screen/end a routine with a keyboard input. The routine only has a text property (“Welcome to our experiment”) followed by a keyboard property (only spacebar is allowed and “Force end of Routine” is checked off).
What specifically went wrong when you tried that?:
PsychoPy did not pick up a key response, and even esc by itself did not work to exit from the experiment. Thus, we had to use option+command+esc to force quit the experiment.
We got these messages:
PTB-WARNING: During PsychHID invocation: Some other running application is preventing me from accessing the keyboard/keypad/mouse…!
PTB-WARNING: This is likely a secure measure, e.g., to protect some active password entry field
PTB-WARNING: Please identify and quit the offending application. E.g., some versions of Firefox are known to cause such problems…
We have made sure that PsychoPy3 is checked off under System Preferences>Security&Privacy>Input Monitoring. Also, this problem still happened when we closed all the other apps.
Any help would be appreciated!
