Dear all,

I was wondering if there was a simple way to load text  files in an inquisit experiment. Currently I produce long lists with conditions in a different program and then copy paste this into a list in inquisit, but it seems like it should be possible to ask inquisit to read the data directly from the text file, any help is appreciated,

You can read in external files into a script via the <include> element. The respective files, however, must contain valid Inquisit syntax to work. See e.g. https://www.millisecond.com/forums/FindPost19046.aspx .

Hello Dave,
