Hi,

I've programmed 10 tests that will be adminstered online using a batch script. I've inserted a reminder in the bottom left corner that instructs participants to press "Ctrl + q" to quit the current test (shown during all trials in all tests). I would like to know if the following is possible:
1. For those using the Inquisit mobile app, is it possible to insert a box or similar which participants can press in order to quit the current test? I know it's possible to simply close the app in order to quit the test in its entirity, but would love an option where only the test that is running ends, and they can continue with the rest of the test battery.
2. I would like the "ctrl + q" instruction to only be visible to those using a computer, and the mobile option to end the current test to only be visible to those using the mobile app. Is this possible?

Heidi

There are built-in ways to quit a script on mobile / touch devices, detailed at https://www.millisecond.com/support/docs/v6/html/howto/howtokeyboardcommands.htm

You can set a suitable reminder text depending on whether the given device has a keyboard or not. Take a look how instiructions are adapted in most library scripts (e.g. https://www.millisecond.com/download/library/v6/baddeley/ ), see the various buttoninstruct expressions.

Hi,

Okay thanks. The function "drawing a Z with two fingers" did not work when I tested on my iphone.

It works, make sure you cover most of the screen width with the horizontal strokes.
