I am using Psychopy3 on a MacBook (standalone).
I am trying to add some questionnaires like the PANAS into my psychopy but I’m not sure if I’m doing it in a really long way. I have been adding a text box of the items and then putting rating scales next to each question so participants can choose their answer. I have done 2 questionnaires with only the slight problem of not being able to see a number under each tick (just the first and last number on scale), but not a big issue.
The problem came when doing the PANAS questionnaire where the scale is categorical= (‘Very slightly or not al all’,‘A little’,‘Moderately’,‘Quite a bit’,‘Extremely’). This means alot of the scale overlaps and I can’t get all the words in the scale.
What I tried: I used the code component of the rating to add stretch=2
This stretched the scale perfectly but it defaulted back to the number scale from 1-7 and I cannot seem to change this no matter what I change on the builder components of the rating scale.
How can I stretch the rating scale to fit all the word options participants can choose from
