Shuffling treatment list hoisted from session.config - cannot shuffle after gathering

#1 by AndreL

I have a list of within-subject treatments inside SESSION_CONFIGS that is

     treat_within=('small_low', 'small_high', 'large_low', 'large_high')
Then, in the main task app, under creating_session(subsession), I retrieve this list as

def creating_session(subsession: Subsession):
        if subsession.round_number == 1:
            for sbj in subsession.get_players():
                  sbj.participant.within_seq = sbj.session.config['treat_within']

Everything works fine as above, and I get 'paricipant.within_seq' var exported from my data file if I try it. 
However, If I try to then shuffle this order with


... I get the following error message below. Is there anything I am missing here?

Change this:

sbj.participant.within_seq = sbj.session.config['treat_within']

To this:

sbj.participant.within_seq = list(sbj.session.config['treat_within'])
