Options to customize the results file are limited at the moment—I’ll look into improving that
_Trial_,End lines are automatically included by PennController: they help you get a sense of the experiment’s timeline. This way you could tell whether, say, a participant’s computer was being very slow.
Text elements, like any PennController element, only add a line to the results file if you use the command .setting.log on them.
What you can do, in absence of an option to prevent the
_Trial_ lines from logging, is filter your results file with your spreadsheet (you can use a filter like “Column Parameter does not contain _Trial_”) or you can parse it using a script to output a new file containing only the lines you are interested in.
Let me know if you have any questions
