  2. Hi there, as I mentioned back then I wasn't going to spend time on working around Nvivo to do a lit review, I had sufficient exposure to realise that the old-fashioned way is best for ME. and I think this is important for folk to realise, what works for some doesn't for others. even doing it the old-fashioned way (taking notes, etc) it is still difficult to find your best workflow. so far I've found that taking notes in margins of papers, white A4 sheets for books or other materials I should not write on (these are kept with the source at all times whenever possible), works best as long as I input these into my research document in a timely manner. with respect to nvivo, our project at the time worked a treat (not saying it was easy) but nvivo did help to put together 80 hours of transcript and analyse them properly.
  3. dear all, I was having a search through the forums and noticed that there is no reference to these very useful tutorials, these are the updated for nv8 version of the teach yourself nvivo tutorials. the tutorials are written by Lyn Richards and as usual they are very clear to use, follow and go through. http://download.qsrinternational.com/Docu...8_Tutorials.pdf enjoy!
  4. hi Robin, that is one hel.l of a question and i'm afraid that you'll have to put in some DYI into it. -as far as i'm concerned there is not relationship whatsoever between videocameras and NVIVO. -what you may have meant is the format and on this there could be some tension but any camera you buy nowadays should support any of the required files (.mpg, .mpeg, .mpe, .wmv, .avi, .mov, .mp4 or .qt formats). -the question between tangible media (discs/tapes) and digital media for storage is entirely up to you. i've experienced both and for interview purposes i'm more than happy to use a HDD type of storage, it's faster to download to your computer and handle (you'll have to do minor editing to get it into your computer and then put it into nvivo). i'm leaving some links for you to check to get you going with video lingo and tips and tricks, it really is quite friendly. one final note, High Definition is not a must but if you can get a camera with that facility for almost the same price then buy into it. guide to video http://lifeandhealth.guardian.co.uk/guides...2244453,00.html reviews (all these cameras were pretty good then, you should be able to get them very cheap and still new nowadays) http://www.guardian.co.uk/technology/2007/...chnologysection hope it helps
  5. hi there, as far as i can understand your problems are related with 'extended' headings applied 'by mistake'. in order to fix this you have to make sure that the headings are only applied to the desired portion of the text. you can do this by switching on the 'format' panel and going over your document to corroborate that indeed, only desired text portions are formatted. if this does not solve it then you will probably have to save the file as .txt only in order to erase all metadata from scratch and then re-head again following the same steps and finallly saving as .doc hope this helps
  6. Hello Melvin, If I understand you correctly what you want is to shuffle/change the priorities you have established so far in your hierarchy. By the time you see this you will have probably answered yourself but, I think that the solution lies here: create another tree node and copy and paste your nodes to that. as far as I understand there is no limit to the number of trees you have, so you can keep the tree as it is now so you can see where you got to and then create a new one and thus continue from the new hierarchy. the free nodes can be just either copied and pasted into the tree or you can also right click on them and add 'as child' of the targeted tree. does this answer your question? best,
  7. just chipping in to say that this has long been requested to no avail, fingers crossed it becomes available at some point.
  8. hi Maga, this sounds to me as a problem related to the Service Packs, i.e. are you running the latest SP, Service Pack 4 (SP4)? I remember this was an issue that got resolved in one of the SP's, so please check you are up to date. If this does not work you would probably be better off sending a mail straight to support for in-depth assistance.
  9. hi Alasdair, as far as I can remember this came up a while ago, do a search for it. but as far as i'm aware this functionality is no longer available... the coloured icons in n7 are set by default, thus you'll have to find a different system for differentiation. probably linking the memos? sorry if i can't help with this more than this but I do not use the memos function as I use nvivo in a different way
  10. hi Bruno, now, that is what i call a small but great question. unfortunately, as you may expect it there is not a simple/straighforward answer. i've put together some links to the forum in which we've spoken about these issues. next time try to give the search function in the forums a go, it's rather good and helps duplication of efforts. there is a good bunch of info out there on how to do this, but a full workshop step by step i've not seen yet, perhaps you'll be the first to write one? so, an answer to you, it is all dependant on your preconceived ideas and what you are aiming for. in the end the software will allow the manipulation of data so you can retrieve the relevant information backing up your claims or actually dismissing them. in the end my best advice is: set yourself only one question and use a small sample of participants or cases in order to see how you would be able to answer it and how incorporating data mixes with your project. have a look and then please come back to us for more. best, Carlos http://forums.qsrinternational.com/index.p...ic=1593&hl= http://forums.qsrinternational.com/index.p...ic=1839&hl= http://forums.qsrinternational.com/index.p...mp;hl=companion
  11. hi Judy, I think that the answer for your problem is to use attributes. Even though you disagree with this idea maybe it's worth giving it a second thought. as you are coding both geographic locations with the same paradigm or objectives once finished you just run a search and divide nodes by attribut=geographic location (A or . this will in turn separate which nodes belong to A and which to B and you'll clearly be able to tell who said what and if they did so or how differently. sets is another way to go. if what you are worried is 'separating' data from the beginning then you use two folders in the 'documents' section. remember nvivo uses the data not the "physical" files, so using sets and attributes does what you want without altering the originals. i think that the discomfort you get is from the uncertainty. why don't you try it out with only two or three cases, use the attributes or sets to run a query and voila, your data will be split accordingly. in the end if you want to use different nodes all you'll get is a duplication of effort as attributes or sets will do exactly the same. please let us know how you got round your problem.
  12. thanks for your help Justin, most helpful best, Carlos
  13. Thanks Alan, The earlier post has misteriously dissappeared.... still wanting to know if anyone saw it and if it can be recommended again. This link you sent is most useful, will be spending some time going through some of the links. After a long search of the problem I was experiencing, I finally found that 'printing to PDF' has the limitation of no creation of links in the pdf document at all (called tags in pdf lingo). In order to do this one must convert with pdf creation software instead. This is not only important for visual impairment, navegability and presentation but also for a coherent management of any document. Anyhow, thanks again Best, Carlos
  14. hi all, two days ago there was an excellent reply about conversion of pdf files, by some department from the Chicago University (i think). however, today i cannot find it and i am wondering if it's just me or if it has dissappeared. can anyone please send me the correct link to that post? i'm sure it came up two nights ago at about 20.30 GMT. best, Carlos
