Rectangle causes experiment to crash - AttributeError: ‘VertexDomain’ object has no attribute ‘attributes'

OS (e.g. Win10): Win10 and MacOS14
PsychoPy version (e.g. 1.84.x): 2023.2.2
Standard Standalone? (y/n) y
What are you trying to achieve?:
I have a rectangular polygon that needs to be constantly visible on screen. My text stimuli change every 1/6th of a second so I have created a loop containing the text stimulus and the rectangle, both with a duration of 1/6 seconds. In 2022.2.4, this worked OK, but since we’ve upgraded to 2023.2.2, the experiment crashes with the following error:
AttributeError: ‘VertexDomain’ object has no attribute ‘attributes’

The experiment should show 3600 stimuli, I’ve checked the data files and it has crashed after 957, 3173, and 3443 stimuli in the last three attempts.

What did you try to make it work?:
I tried upgrading to version 2023.2.3 but it still happened.
I tried disabling the polygon and creating a new one. It did not crash when the new polygon was added as a triangle but when I changed it to a rectangle it crashed again.

What specifically went wrong when you tried that?:
I get a very long and complicated error message:
warnings.warn(f"A NumPy version >={np_minversion} and <{np_maxversion}"

My advice is to continue using version 2022.2.4 which I suppose is also the version in which the task has been built. Even if you’ve upgraded to version 2023.2.2, you can set the version in which you want the task to run. Go in “Settings” - “Use version Psychopy” and choose the version 2022.2.4 from the drop-down menu. Imposing the version in which the task worked, it shouldn’t give you this error.

That’s helpful. Thank you.
