Randomizing without repeats

I am building a mental rotation task. The loop is set to random with nReps at 1.

The program is repeating images from the list instead of only doing each image once.

I tried setting the nReps to nothing, which made the experiment terminate early. I then set it to 0 and the experiment didnt show any images.

It was my understanding the psychopy automatically does randomize without repeats. Is that wrong?

Yes, if you set nReps to 1 with the loop set to random, it would randomise without repeating. Do you mind sharing your files so that I can take a closer look?

I fixed it! I’m not sure what helped, but I played with the component and loop settings I’m pretty sure it was one or both of those things that were off.

Thank you so much!
