  1. Hello Sandra, If you would like to work on a project with multiple computers, I strongly recommend using external drive storage over cloud server. The reason is that when you save a NVivo project file, cloud service client immediately attempts to synchronize these changes to the project file which is stored within the cloud. However, the client will be unable to access the project file because NVivo has exclusive access to the file while the project is open in NVivo which can cause problems that might even lead to data loss. In addition to that please make sure to set project re

  2. The view setting currently reverts back to the pre-set standard every time you open a new node or source (or reopen the entire project at the start of the day), which means no highlights or codes are displayed. Could you please add a feature that allows the user to customise this setting. Particularly, it would be helpful to allow 'Highlight' -> 'Coding for All Nodes' to be permanently selected for all sources / nodes. The same goes for 'Coding Stripes' -> 'Nodes Recently Coding'. It is rather frustrating that I have to select both options every time I enter a new node / source. In big

    Charles Vanover and Paul Mihas discuss their new book, co-edited with Johnny Saldaña, Analyzing and Interpreting Qualitative Research: After the Interview. The book’s goal is to provide a how-to guide for engaging data through the qualitative research life cycle—from the conclusion of substantial fieldwork to the beginning of formal research writing. Charles and Paul discuss how both beginning and seasoned researchers might use the book to plan their studies and engage with their data. They underscore the importance good decision-making plays in every stage of the qualitative journey and

  4. Hello @JUelkes, Please note that Datasets are created by importing data, and cannot be edited inside NVivo. Therefore, you can not delete a specific portion of an imported dataset. If you would like to limit your analysis to first 4600 tweets in your dataset, just select all 4600 tweets and code them with a code named Scope. Then, while performing any sort of queries click "Selected Items" from "Search In" filter and chose Scope code as your scope item. This will limit your query only to first 4600 tweets you coded. I hope this helps, Regards,

  5. I am coding using the drag and drop method in which document text is highlighted and dragged to the node. Highlighting works fine, but I can't establish a pattern of why the dragging intermittently fails about half the time. When it doesn't work, the highlighted text becomes unhighlighted and starts highlighting again where I click the cursor. The best I can tell, unless I click exactly on the black text that is highlighted (not on any whitespace, even it is the space in the "O" of the text), the drag will fail. I find that I can most successfully drag the highlighted text when I click on an "

  10. Please someone tell me there is a solution to my problems! Problem one, after highlighting text, when I attempt to drag said text to a code, half the time the highlight disappears. I have tried different timing sequences such as waiting 1,3,5,10 seconds etc, but it seems almost down to random chance if the highlight will hold. Then comes the second issue, whether you can drag it to your desired code. You have to hold it long enough, but who knows what that length of time is, as that length of time randomly changes. As of yet, I have found no consistent way to both highlight and drag the te

I've also tried opening my video file in Quick Time Player and exporting it (now saved as a .mov file) but it still wont upload. It's showing an error message 'Unable to generate waveform'. Has anyone had similar difficulties trying to import video files into NVivo 12 on mac? Thank you! Elizabeth

We both worked in Nvivo 1.4.1, the only difference is that she works on a MAC computer and I on a Windows. When we forwarded our files to each other, we did the following steps: Share < copy project < convert to MAC/Windows (depending on who was sending to whom). When I (Windows user) opened her file, I got error messages. The error message said "Conversion failed. Please check 'Project C

  17. Hi fmcgaffey, the Extracts are currently unable to relate Nodes to Cases. As a workaround, you can try the following: 1. Create a Matrix Coding query with your Nodes as rows and Cases as columns. 2. Save the results as a Node Matrix. Make sure that you select the Node Matrix folder as your save location. 3. Copy the saved node matrix and paste to the Nodes folder. When prompted to Paste as Node, click yes. This will create a 3-level node hierarchy with the node matrix name as the top-level node, the Node as second-level node and the nodes corresponding to the cases as c

  18. Hi Sandra, You need to make a copy of your project and upload it to a share drive or save to a thumb drive. And then copy it to your other computer. I would recommend using one operating system with NVivo. So if you are using your Mac, you would use the Parallel software you have to open the NVivo Project in the Windows environment. You don't have to purchase two licenses if you purchase NVivo for Windows you can use install it on your Windows and Mac Computers.

The content is displayed in gray by default that does not mean that those words will be coded. To check, open the node you created and select text tab and open one of the sources you will see that only "water" will be highlighted. Regards,

  22. Canarik, I am using the new NVivo with Catalina and drag and drop coding certainly does not work fine. Selections are frequently dropped, either because I do not hold it for long enough before moving the cursor or because I click a Menu for example. I have to re-select text so many times, it's a huge time sink once it all adds up.

  23. Here it is, September 2020. same problem with drag and drop not working in Mac NVivo. I have the most recent version. I wait 5 seconds to move selected text to code, and it won't move. I've tried it all three ways which one can code. It will not work. My Mac drake and drop works on all other applications. I hate NVivo and am about to dump it completely. Will someone at QSR assist me? I can't seem to get help from them. thanks, Lisa

  24. Hello Lauren, If I understand you correctly what you try to achieve is to have "scores" that represents some sort of scaling instead of actual numeric scores. If you all you need to do is to create additional nodes (codes) for your scores and code your data accordingly. For example: 1) Somewhat Negative 2) Moderately Negative 3) Very Negative ----------- 1) Somewhat Positive 2) Moderately Positive 3) Very Positive ----------- Hope this helps,

  28. Hi Angela, Cases will act as the link between the source documents and the theme/auto-coding nodes. Typically these cases would be a unit of analysis in a project and only one reference would be coded to them, the source document. References from interview participants would be coded against the theme/auto-coding nodes. As long as the theme node is coded from the same source attached to the cases, there is a link. Hope this helps. Regards, ^NVivoSup

  29. Hi, If all 5 interviews are in a single document, you can create 5 nodes based on interviews and code respective interview text to those nodes. Then you run a Matrix Coding query between interview nodes and your theme nodes. The resulting matrix will show the number of common coding references across interviews and themes. The other solution which you've already tried is to have these interviews in separate documents. You can then run a Matrix Coding query between interview documents and nodes. Kind Regards, Bhupesh

  32. Hi Ruben, To try and resolve your issue, try merging your project into a blank new project. To do this: 1. In NVivo, create a blank new project. 2. Click the Import tab and the click the Project icon. The 'Import Project' dialog box appears. 3. Click Browse and navigate to and select your project file from the Desktop. 4. Click Import. Once the import finishes, see if this issue is resolved in this new project file, which contains your entire project data. If the issue still persists, can you please send us the project file

  33. I have a coding matrix of cases by a few nodes. I want to produce a report of the text coded at the specified nodes for each case. It should look something like this: Case 1 Node 1: Text..text..text … Node 2: Text..text..text … Case 2 Node 1: Text..text..text … Node 2: Text..text..text … Etc. Does anyone know how to do this?

  34. Hi cgev, Currently there is no direct way to do this in NVivo, however it may be possible with a Matrix Coding query. The query can be set with columns being your 36 nodes and rows as your responses. As the responses are just text at the moment, you will need to make them somehow a project item, such as a node. Once the query is run, you can display if the item in a row is coded to a particular node (column) by right clicking on the matrix and from the menu selecting Cell Content > Coding Presence. These query results can also be exported to an Excel file. For more information on

  35. Hi all, I still struggle with the limits of annotations in NVivo. I tend to annotate as I code, as I like to note ideas related to specific parts of transcript text. But I keep finding myself in trouble with this strategy: 1. It is not possible to actually view the annotations, without going to the source or coded node. I can pull up a list of annotations, but when I click one, it takes me to the source. I find this frustrating; I would like to click on an annotation and be able to JUST see the highlighted/referenced text of the source and the full text of the annotation. Of course

  38. Hi everyone, I know the Nvivo is about qualitative analysis. Nevertheless, when using the cluster analysis function, we need to explain the validity of those results. For example, how to show that Pearson coefficient of 0.46 is significant? The p-value logic could be applied here? If it is not possible to know all the parameters to calculate the Pearson coefficient, how to justify the use of Nvivo as a reliable tool? I really need some help with this. Thanks very much!

  39. Hi Heather, Thanks for the answer. Please, I don't know how to calculate manually because the parameters and the approach used are unknown. Is there any way to ensure or qualify the Pearson correlation number provided by NVIVO? For example, what is the N ? What the significance level for one-tailed test? Is there some online tool to get this values using the text files? Thanks.

  40. Hi Ozi, Something you might want to look into is creating source classifications and then classifying your sources. Source classifications contain information about the source such as bibliographic data and the attributes of your sources can then be used as criteria when running queries or creating charts. Data imported from NCapture is automatically classified to the reference classification, with some information about the source (such as URL and capture date) added as attributes. You could either modify the existing classification to add the extra attributes you need, or you cou

  42. Hi Bhupesh, Thanks for your reply. (1) When I run a cluster analysis on sets, the diagram shows all the sources in that set (e.g., all interviews)-- the analysis looks the same as selecting all sources -- it does not compare set vs set (e.g., School 1 vs School 2). Am I doing something wrong? (2) Matrix queries have been useful for comparing cases, but I'd hoped there was a way to run a cluster analysis. I guess I could export it to Excel for the cluster analysis. best, Lisa

Hi Danni, You can do this by opening NVivo via the programs menu (not by clicking on the project file) and then clicking file -> options and under user profile, change the name and initials to your colleague's name and initials. Then create a new blank project (File -> new), and import your colleagues data into this blank project. Please confirm that the project user now shows as your colleague by clicking File -> (under project information) Project properties -> users. Please save and close the project.

  46. I find NVivo's software quirk on drag and drop coding extremely frustrating. This quirk relates to text selection: once a section of text is selected it is intuitive to drag it quickly to the desired code, but in NVivo this doesn't work; instead the selection is dropped and a process of selecting new text begins. It seems that NVivo requires the user to click on the selected text, pause for over 1 second, and then begin the drag motion. This is painful - it doesn't seem like much but it interrupts fast working, especially when selections are dropped. Moreover, it diverges from standard log

  48. In the process above, you can select several sources as rows and several corresponding nodes as columns. A table appears with nonzero numbers at the intersections. In the detail view, when you right-click one of the values and select ‘Cell Content > Words Coded’, it appears for all rows. You can then export the node matrix query results to excel by right-clicking in its top-left cell and choosing the adequate context menu item.

  50. If I want to create a new code, and apply it to the text I am working with (a very common action), MAXQDA requires several actions: Ctrl-Alt-N, create new code, then click (or drag) to apply the code to highlighted text. Once text is highlighted, it should be possible to create and apply a code with one action. My recommendation would be to make the keyboard command Ctrl-Alt-Shift-N do this. This suggestion also applies to the Windows version I think.
