Hello,
We have several experiments we are working on transferring from Inquisit Lab to Web. Most of our difficulties involve the font size being too small, or when we resize them for the phone rather than the computer, there is variation based on how big the participants' screen sizes are and sometimes the font will go outside the display for some people. We have tried this line but that actually worsened our problem with the font being far too large, "/windowsize = (1334px, 750px)"

Is there any generic advice that could guide us in this process?

One specific example is the Death/Suicide Implicit Association script from the milisecond library where the font is too small.

Thank you very much
Dave

Generally, define all sizes and positions in percentages. Do not forget to define /size attributes for any <text> elements, otherwise Inquisit will not know where to break longer text into several lines. Consider using conditional <include> elements to deliver settings tailored to specific devices, e.g. different default fontsizes in <defaults> for regular computers / laptops vs. tablets / phones.

Thank you for this guidance. I have gone through and made sure that all sizes and positions are in percentages except for a few non-text elements which seem to be fine across devices so I have left those. I redefined the defaults and I am hoping that will help. The biggest problem is that the lines of text will be too long for some screen sizes but not for others, I imagine the defaults area also controls text elements but if not I could add the size tag to each text element. So far when I tried this, I must have done something terribly wrong as the text was almost completely off the screen!

Below is an excerpt from the script - I would be grateful if you could please let me know if anything else here seems like it needs to be changed to work across androids, iPhone 8 vs iPhone 11 screen sizes, etc.!

Thank you very much

PRACTICE SESSION INSTRUCTIONS:
^^^
Please try to imagine yourself in the following scenarios.
There will be word fragments to complete;
you will need to type the correct missing letter
to proceed on the keypad which will pop up automatically.
</page>

<page pretraining2>
PRACTICE SESSION INSTRUCTIONS:
^^
After reading the scenarios, a question to make sure you understood
the scenario will appear. You won't be able to proceed until responding correctly.
^^
You will need to press Y for 'Yes' and N for 'No'.
</page>

<page ratingsinstruct>
^^^^
Please rate the following items for how closely they match the meaning of the original scenario. Also, please rate each sentence independently of the other.
</page>

<page recognitionscenarios1>
^^
The session will now begin.
^^
You will complete several scenarios.
^^
</page>

<page recognitionscenarios2>
Next, you will see the title of the previous scenarios followed by 4 sentences;
none will be worded identically to the sentences in the previous scenarios.
^^
You will rate each sentence for its similarity in meaning to what you believe to be the meaning of the scenario you read earlier.
</page>

<page recognitionscenarios3>
Also, rate each sentence independently of all others.
^^
For example, if you believe the sentences have the same similarity
in meaning to the scenario, assign them the same level of similarity.

<page end>
^^
All done with this part!
^^
Please let the experimenter know you are done with this part of the assessment.

Hello,
We have several experiments we are working on transferring from Inquisit Lab to Web. Most of our difficulties involve the font size being too small, or when we resize them for the phone rather than the computer, there is variation based on how big the participants' screen sizes are and sometimes the font will go outside the display for some people. We have tried this line but that actually worsened our problem with the font being far too large, "/windowsize = (1334px, 750px)"

Is there any generic advice that could guide us in this process?

One specific example is the Death/Suicide Implicit Association script from the milisecond library where the font is too small.

Thank you very much

Generally, define all sizes and positions in percentages. Do not forget to define /size attributes for any <text> elements, otherwise Inquisit will not know where to break longer text into several lines. Consider using conditional <include> elements to deliver settings tailored to specific devices, e.g. different default fontsizes in <defaults> for regular computers / laptops vs. tablets / phones.

> I imagine the defaults area also controls text elements but if not I could add the size tag to each text element.

No, /position and /size are not defined in <defaults>. What you can define in <defaults> is documented in the documentation:
https://www.millisecond.com/support/docs/v6/html/language/elements/defaults.htm

You need to define /size and /position in the respective stiimulus elements (<text>, <picture>, etc.)
