  1. 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

  2. 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 "

  3. 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

  4. 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,

  5. Hello Mike57, 1) You may want to check below link about how to change application preferences on Nvivo for Mac: http://help-nv11mac.qsrinternational.com/desktop/procedures/set_application_options.htm You need to open Nvivo preferences then click Language tab and change the language. 2) In order to download the most up to date version of Nvivo's older versions you need to create an account on My Nvivo Portal. After you sign-in click Download Nvivo and choose download older versions. Hope these help, With kind regards,

  6. Hello Tabitha, OneDrive or any other cloud service has a network channel between the folders you have selected to sync and your cloud space. In that sense, if you are saving your Nvivo project into a sync folder, it is similar to save your projects on a network drive. Nvivo Manual says that : "By default, if your project is stored on a network drive, when you save the project your changes are saved locally—the .nvp project file on the network is only updated when you close the project. To avoid loss of data, make sure that you close your project before you turn off your computer."

  9. 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

  10. 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

  12. Hi Nic, It’s not possible to get quite the output you are after. The closest thing you could do would be to view your dataset with coding stripes turned on to get an indication of how it has been coded. You can find information about turning coding stripes on at the following link: https://help-nv.qsrinternational.com/12/win/v12.1.86-d3ea61/Content/coding/coding-stripes.htm As for finding the number of your survey participants coded at each of your theme nodes, something you might want to explore is running a matrix coding query. For example, you could have a matrix coding query tha

  14. Hi aatrainor, You can find the NVivo 12 help at the following link; https://help-nv.qsrinternational.com/12/win/v12.1.86-d3ea61/Content/welcome.htm The option to show or hide annotations is present in the View group in the ribbon. The tab this appears on will depend on the source type you have open. For example, if you have a document open this will appear on the ‘Document’ tab, while with a video it would appear on the ‘Video’ tab and so on. Regards, Heather

  15. After creating a matrix coding query with cases down the rows and coding categories across the columns, NVivo allows you to filter the matrix by row or column values, which is very helpful. However, it does not let you save these filtered results with your query or export them to Excel, from what I can tell. Is there any way to export the matrix to Excel with the column/row filtering preserved? Thank you!

  16. 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

  17. 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?

  18. 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

  19. 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

  22. 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.

  23. 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!

  26. 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

  28. Hi Mary, At this time there is no way to join words together in a word cloud or word frequency query in NVivo for Mac. The link you provided appears to be for a different service or program and isn't related to NVivo for Mac, which is why the steps weren't working in your situation. The word frequency list can be exported out of NVivo and you may be able to use it as the word-list for Wordclouds.com, but as this is a service that isn't provided by us I can't assist with generating the word cloud this way, and you may need to get in touch with them for assistance.

  29. Hello - I just had a very helpful conversation with a QSR technical expert, who found a workaround for this problem, which really did give me a nasty shock. You can still query annotations in compound queries - just use the same search terms in both sub-queries and select annotations in criteria. Jonathan

  30. Hello Liz, This could happen if there is some rich text format in the coded part of the sources which NVivo is unable to render. Can you please enable plain text and see if this resolves the issue? Enable Plain Text To change this setting: 1) Launch NVivo 2) Go to the File menu -> Options 3) Tick the option ‘Display plain text for nodes with' 4) Click Apply 5) Click OK 6) Close down NVivo 7) Re-launch NVivo Regards, Sameer

  31. Hi dr_cnkimball, There are a few approaches you can take to organising your data. Possibly the simplest approach would be to rename your sources in NVivo so that the time/date is a part of the source name, or use a different source folder for each time. You could also use sets to organise your sources, so you could have a different set for each time. Sets are different to folders in NVivo as a set just contains a “shortcut” to your project item. This allows you to have one project item included in multiple sets. You can find some information about this at the following link http://help
