How to define a position with absolute length units (e.g. pt & pc)

How to define a position with absolute length units (e.g. pt & pc)
 Author Message Yat_Zoeng Group: Awaiting Activation Posts: 3, Visits: 7 Hi, everyone. I came across the problem of defining the position of a stimulus with absolute length scale. I need to set a picture right next to the fixxing point in the middle of the screen with a distance of 7° visual angle. So the picture is approxiamtely 13.55pc from the center. I wonder how I can actualize this position defination regardless of the screen size and resolution of the monitor.

We assume that the sbjs are 50cm from the monitor, and that's 13.55pc*13.55pc for the stimulus under the requirement of 7°visual angle. That can be a fix value.​Thx for ur reply btw​​ Dave posted 7 Months Ago ANSWER Group: Administrators Posts: 10K, Visits: 64K +x Yat_Zoeng - 6/15/2020+x Dave - 6/15/2020+x Yat_Zoeng - 6/14/2020Hi, everyone.
