Inquisit cuts off stimuli

Hi,

For some reason Inquisit cuts off stimuli on the right side of the screen. As you can see in the picture below.

These are the values for the stiimuli:
<values>
/squareheight = 4.1956cm
/fontheight = 10%
/leftsquare_x = 9.692cm
/rightsquare_x = 43.439cm

/responsekey = 57
/responsekeylabel = "<SPACEBAR>"

/targetduration = 1000
/ITI = 500
/restduration = 60000
</values>

The screen is ~53 cm wide (24'' screen), so it should fit.

Does anyone know how I can change some settings to fix this?

Thanks in advance!

Hard to tell without seeing the whole code, but my theory would be this:

(a) There's a 4:3 /canvasaspectratio defined in the script's <defaults>.
(b) For some reason, said canvas region is *left-aligned*, either explicitly via /canvasposition or due to a glitch. The grey 4:3 overlay illustrates the effect.

Try explicitly setting

<defaults>
...
/ canvasposition = (50%,50%)
...
</defaults>

and let me know if that resolves the issue or not. Thanks!
