Thank you very much!

Hello,
We have now adjusted sizes and positions on our task so that it is appropriate for Inquisit Web with different devices vs Inquisit Lab with computer only. However, we are receiving feedback from test participants that the keyboard feature for open ended questions is not ideal because they can no longer reference what they read above the keyboard, which reminds them of how to answer.

Instead of shifting the focus of the screen down to the keyboard, is it possible to allow for both the text above with the openended prompt and the keyboard to be displayed simultaneously? Here is our current code. Thank you!

<defaults>
/ fontstyle = ("Hiragino Sans", 8%, false, false, false, false)

Ok thank you, I can't figure out if there might be a way to have the keyboard take less space on the page or not automatically move the entire screen down to view it? thanks agai

> I can't figure out if there might be a way to have the keyboard take less space on the page

No. The on-screen keyboard is an OS (iOS, Android) UI element -- Inquisit does not control how much screen estate it takes up. As I've pointed out to you previously, you can delay the point in time when the on-screen keyboard appears per /beginresponsetime ( https://www.millisecond.com/forums/FindPost32282.aspx ). Other than that, you simply have to design for it, i.e. figure out how much screen estate you have available and adjust any stimuli's sizes and positions accordingly.
