Superlab crashes when try to use macro editor

I just downloaded the demo and set up the example experiment described in the tutorial.
When I follow the instructions to give the participant a break, the program crashes when I press OK after the following step:

“In the RHS (right hand side) section at the bottom of the dialog, enter the number of trials after which you want to introduce a pause, e.g. type 30 if you want to give the participant a break after 30 trials”

(In my experiment, I used 3 trials).

(I’m following the steps on: file:///Applications/SuperLab%204/

I’m using Mac OS 10.4.7 (the latest version). This crash occurs everytime on both my laptop and my dual G4

Any ideas on what’s causing the problem?
Thanks in advance.

This is a bug that has been fixed already and will be part of version 4.0.2 that’s coming out soon. Please let us know if this still happens after version 4.0.2 is released.

This is happening on my G5 at the moment.
When will version 4.0.2 be ready?

We’re anticipating a 4.0.2 release towards the end of this coming week or the week after at the latest.

Any news on when 4.0.2 will be available? Will we get it automatically? Or will we have to contact you?

Version 4.0.2 was just released a few minutes ago.

Thanks Hisham, I’m fairly new to SL and also have been suffering the crashing problem. How does one go about acquiring version 4.0.2?

many thanks in advance,


Hi Joe,

I just discovered that the newly created News forum did not have the persmissions set correctly. You should now be able to access it at

The information on obtaining 4.0.2 is available in the posted news release.


Many thanks Hisham, permissions seem to be in order now.
