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 what_key.py 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)
