Self paced reading experiment: instructions do not show up

PsychoPy version 3
**Standard Standalone? yes

Hello,

I’m trying to put together a self-paced reading experiment, which starts with a practice trial and then moves on to the “real” trials. I have managed make the actual trials work, but for some reason, the instructions (instructions_2) after the practice trial do not show up. Instead, the experiment immediately moves on the “real” study trials. Does anyone have a solution for this? I have attached the experiment file below.

Thanks in advance!

Have you tried setting “Discard previous” to TRUE, so that the routine doesn’t immediately end in response to any previously-pushed keys still in the keyboard buffer?

That worked, thank you so much!
