Text boxes not clickable in online experiment


I am experimenting with a program and put in 4 text boxes and a mouse click on my builder experiment. The text boxes are clickable, and the response is saved depending on which text I click. However, when I transfer this to online, the text boxes are not clickable at all. I try and click on any text and it doesn’t continue the experiment. Is there a fix around this?


What version of PsychoPy are you using.

Text elements aren’t clickable online with 2020, so the solution was to put a rectangular polygon behind them. I’d have to check my crib sheet to see if they’re clickable in 2021.

Thanks @wakecarter, I actually just saw a previous reply with the polygons solution.
