Hi Larissa,

a) See my answer on this thread

b) See the code in this message for an illustration of a timeout implementation. The basic idea is: start a Timer element, create (and print, if applicable) your interactive element and make sure to .log() it, wait for the Timer to elapse, then disable/remove the interactive element

c) Just set separacao to 3500 and start it before timer-D1, but only wait for it at the end of the trial, eg:

newTrial(
  newText("instructions", "Quick! Press F or J now!").print()
  ,
  newTimer("separacao", 3500)
  ,
  newTimer("timer-D1", 1000+Math.round(600*Math.random()) ).start(),
  newKey("FJ").log("all").callback( getTimer("timer-D1").stop() ),
  getTimer("timer-D1").wait()
  ,
  getKey("FJ").disable(),
  getText("instructions").remove()
  ,
  newText("Next trial incoming...").print(),
  getTimer("separacao").wait()
)
