Likert warning

I would like to add a warning  in a likert, say 30 seconds into the trial, reminding a user that time is almost up. However if I modify my stimulustimes ( [ 1= ratequestion, 30000=warning] ) my likert shows no anchors for 30 seconds and then scale anchors + warning together 30 seconds into the trial . Anything i can do to add a warning to a likert?

<likert rateimage>
/ anchors = [1 ="Weak"; 2="Light"; 3="Moderate"; 4="Strong"]
/ stimulustimes = [1 = ratequestion]
/ mouse=true
/ numpoints=4
/ position= (50%, 40%)
/ timeout = values.maxsurveytime
</likert>

Yes, that's the expected behavior. By default, Inquisit will only start accepting responses once *all* stimuli defined in /stimulustimes have been displayed. You can override that by defining the <likert>'s /beginresponsetime attribute accordingly.

<likert rateimage>
/ anchors = [1 ="Weak"; 2="Light"; 3="Moderate"; 4="Strong"]
/ stimulustimes = [0 = ratequestion; 30000 = warning]
/ beginresponsetime = 0

/ mouse=true
/ numpoints=4
/ position= (50%, 40%)
/ timeout = values.maxsurveytime
</likert>
