Hi everyone,

I would like to do a survey with one question ("How did you find the task?") and several radiobuttons to indicate different aspects ("very frustrating" / "not frustrating at all"; "very easy" / "very difficult").

I would like to go the the horizontalequal option, but as the options have different length, they are not equally spaced. Is it possible to change that?

Thank you bery much for your help!

Here is my code:

<surveypage concluding1>
/ caption = "Der Aufgabenteil der Studie ist nun vorbei. Es folgen noch einige wenige Fragen."
/ fontstyle = ("avenir", 2.2%, true, false, false, false, 5)
/ subcaptionfontstyle = ("avenir", 2%, false, true, false, false, 5, 0 )
/ itemfontstyle = ("avenir", 2.2%, false, true, false, false, 5, 0)
/ txcolor = (black)
/ questions = [1 = sequence(boring, frustrating, difficult)]
/ showbackbutton = false
/ showpagenumbers = false
/ showquestionnumbers = false
/ itemspacing = 2%
/ nextbuttonposition = (90%, 90%)
/ navigationbuttonfontstyle = ("Avenir", 2.2%, false, false, false, false, 5, 0)
/ nextlabel = "  weiter"
/ finishlabel = "  weiter"
</surveypage>

<radiobuttons boring>
/ caption = "Wie würden Sie die Aufgabe beschreiben?"
/ options=("gar nicht langweilig", " ", " ", " ", " ", " ", "sehr langweilig")
/ optionvalues= ("1", "2", "3", "4", "5", "6", "7")
/ orientation = horizontalequal
/ required = true
/ responsefontstyle = ("Arial", 1.5%, true, false, false, false, 5, 0)
</radiobuttons>

<radiobuttons frustrating>
/ options=("gar nicht frustrierend", " ", " ", " ", " ", " ", "sehr frustrierend")
/ optionvalues= ("1", "2", "3", "4", "5", "6", "7")
/ orientation = horizontalequal
/ required = true
/ responsefontstyle = ("Arial", 1.5%, true, false, false, false, 5, 0)
</radiobuttons>

<radiobuttons difficult>

You can use tab-characters (~t) to make the options' lenghts equal:

Part of the problem is that the pixel width of the first option label sets the width of the other option labels. So, pad the shorter option labels with spaces to make it match. But, since a proportional font's width is not the same for the same number of characters, you can't do that. If you switch to a monospaced font, it works better. I tried Lucida Console and that worked.

Maybe there's a slicker solution...

Here's what I did:
<radiobuttons boring>
/ caption = "Wie würden Sie die Aufgabe beschreiben?"
/ options=("gar nicht langweilig ", " ", " ", " ", " ", " ", "sehr langweilig") -- NOTE there are 2 spaces after the first label to match the length of the longest
...
/ responsefontstyle = ("Lucida Console", 1%, true, false, false, false, 5, 0)
</radiobuttons>

<radiobuttons frustrating>
/ options=("gar nicht frustrierend", " ", " ", " ", " ", " ", "sehr frustrierend") -- NOTE this is the longest so no spaces after
...
/ responsefontstyle = ("Lucida Console", 1%, true, false, false, false, 5, 0) -- Note Lucida Console and 1% so it fits on a smaller screen area than 1.5%
</radiobuttons>

<radiobuttons difficult>
/ options=("  viel zu leicht  ", " ", " ", " ", " ", " ", "viel zu schwierig") -- NOTE 4 spaces before and after the first label
/ optionvalues= ("1", "2", "3", "4", "5", "6", "7")
/ orientation = horizontalequal
/ required = true
/ responsefontstyle = ("Lucida Console", 1%, true, false, false, false, 5, 0)
</radiobuttons>

Thank you for this thread, helped me a lot!
Unfortunately I still have an issue that I couldn't solve so far.
Everytime I try to adjust font styles, the space between the radiobuttons goes back to the situation I had before. Only when I delete all font style options, then the spacing works.
Can anyone tell me why is that and how it is possible to adjust font styles? Thank you!

One additional question: Is it possible to present single words of the /caption in bold?

I don't think you have explained what the situations is you "had before." What, precisely is that situation?

Under Inquisit 6, yes. In earlier versions, no. (You posted in the Inquisit 5 forum).

/ caption = "The last word is <b>bold</b>."

Under Inquisit 6, yes. In earlier versions, no. (You posted in the Inquisit 5 forum).

Thank you so far! I replied to this existing post in inquisit 5 forum, because the topic here was about exactly the same problem that I have.

You wrote, regarding radiobuttons: "You can use tab-characters (~t) to make the options' lenghts equal:"
My situation now is, that this works only, if I don't define font styles. No matter where I try to define them (default, survey, surveypage, radiobuttons), the distance of the radiobuttons is not equal any more.
Do you have a solution for that? (sorry if I should post this in Inquisit 6 forum, thought it makes also sense here).

Thank you for this thread, helped me a lot!
Unfortunately I still have an issue that I couldn't solve so far.
Everytime I try to adjust font styles, the space between the radiobuttons goes back to the situation I had before. Only when I delete all font style options, then the spacing works.
Can anyone tell me why is that and how it is possible to adjust font styles? Thank you!

One additional question: Is it possible to present single words of the /caption in bold?

How many tabs (or spaces) you may need will obviously depend on the font you choose and its size. So:
First set the fontstyle you want.
Then look at the result.
Then add tabs or spaces as needed.

Alternatively, and this is what I would do here, use separate <caption>s for the left and right anchors and position them as needed, I,e, something like this:

<defaults>
/canvasaspectratio = (4,3)
/minimumversion = "6.5.2.0"
/ screencolor = (240, 240, 240)
/ txbgcolor = (transparent)
/ txcolor = black
/ inputdevice = keyboard
/ canvassize = (90%, 90%)
</defaults>

<survey trust>
/ pages = [1=trust1]
/ pagefontstyle = ("Arial", 2.0%, false, false, false, false, 5, 1)
/showpagenumbers = false
/showquestionnumbers = false
/ navigationbuttonfontstyle = ("Arial", 3%, false, false, false, false, 5, 1)
/ navigationbuttonsize = (15%, 5%)
/ backbuttonposition = (20%, 90%)
/ nextbuttonposition = (70%, 90%)
/ finishlabel = "Fertig"
/ nextlabel = "Weiter"
/ backlabel = "Zurück"
</survey>

This is awesome, thank you! I couldn't have done this alone.
Now it looks really good, the only problem is, that I cannot select any option any more :D
it works with my other radiobuttons in the script, so there may be a problem within this survey?
