Hello!

We have created an online experiment which works well when running on Windows but when played on a Mac computer the formatting is changed so that the stimuli are no longer in the correct place/are overlapping each other. Does anyone know how to format it on InQuisit 5 so that the experiment is displayed correctly across all platforms?

Many thanks
Dave

Specify a uniform /canvasaspectratio in the script's <defaults> element and make sure to specify all stimuli's /size and /position attributes in percentages. In addition, any font sizes should also be given in percentages in the respective /fontstyle attributes.

Virtually all scripts available in the library adhere to these practices, so you can take them as examples.
