Hello everybody

[left]I'm quite new to inquisit and I know that the problems with different monitor sizes have been posted before. I still couldn't find a solution for my problem though. I'm programming a survey with radiobuttons and different items for surveypages like dropdown and textbox items. I have two monitors and one my smaller monitor the surveypage elements are very small and hardly readable also the size of the radiobuttons don't ajust. I did fix the canvassize and canvasratio and tried different sizes for the elemnts, but nothing seems to work. Does anyone know a solution for the problem? I will add parts my very unelegant code and two print screens, so you know what I'm talking about.

Thanks already for every response!
Sarah

- Define your font sizes in percentages. Point sizes as in the above will not scale equally across different display resolutions.
- Use /orientation = horizontalequal in the <radiobuttons>
- Toy around with the amount of whitespace characters in /options until you have the desired spacing between options.

This will improve things somewhat, but the problem won't go away entirely. There is no ideal solution.
