Using / as a response key

OS (e.g. Win10): Win10
PsychoPy version (e.g. 1.84.x): 1.85.2

What are you trying to achieve?:Trying to add / as an accepted key in a keyboard component as part of a word categorisation task.

What did you try to make it work?: Entered β€˜/’ alongside other relevant key.

What specifically went wrong when you tried that?: Task would run with other keys but not when / was used - is this not an accepted response key?

If you open the Coder View of PsychoPy then run as per image below.


While it’s running, whatever key you press, it’s name will appear in the output window as per image below (ignore the square brackets though)
