Dear all,

I am currently working on my first experiment and came across a question, where I need some help:

Whenever I use a likert scale or a slider on a page (I am using mostly scales ranging from 1 to 7), the middle (4) is always already selected / highlighted.
When using likert scales the box #4 is highlighted with a blue line, and when using sliders the slider already points to the middle of the range of the scale.

Do you know if it's possible to turn that off? So there's no colored option when using likert scales and when using a slider the pointer only appears when the user actually clicks on the scale?

Thanks for all your help in advance :)

No, it's not possible to turn off. For <slider> elements, though, you can specify a /defaultresponse that differs from the scale's midpoint. If you want something without any pre-selection, you can use <radiobuttons>.

Thanks a lot for the quick reply and I will think about the <radiobuttons> option!
