  1. You are right! Windows version allows you to import them. Regards,
  2. Hello again AmirM, When you follow above steps on the word "water" will be coded withe node you created. 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,
  3. Hello AmirM, In the Mac version annotations would not be imported. Please follow below source ( it belongs to a earlier version but still relevant) https://help-nv11mac.qsrinternational.com/desktop/procedures/import_items_from_another_nvivo_project.htm Hope this helps, Regards,
  4. Hello PTaylor, Coloring feature in hierarchy charts allows you to compare same level members of a given hierarchy. Thus, if you select the top level "Psychological Skills" node you are not comparing it something to any same level node and all nodes in your project belongs to that top level node that's why you will get same color. You will get the same if you choose "Coaching and Tools" parent node and create a hierarchy chart. In order to get what you want just select your 2nd level parent nodes and create a hierarchy chart. When presenting you would not need to show
  5. Hello AmirM, You can definitely do that! Before running your query, please make sure you selected "exact matches" Once you completed your text search query, you will see a "save results" button on the top right next to the "run query". Click that give your code a name and choose a location for it. Hope this helps, Regards,
  6. Hello Adam, The easiest way to solve this issue would be to combine all 4 transcripts into a single document. Then apply classifications to your 50 documents. However, in my experience, combining transcripts is not an option in many situations, since each unique document has its own unique data characteristics. In that case, I would suggest you to look at this topic that I previously shared my ideas about a similar question. http://forums.qsrinternational.com/index.php?showtopic=5782&hl=canarik#entry16869 Hope this helps,
  7. Hi Phil, No worries, there is a quite simple solution for your issue. Gdrive (and any other drive) checks the last modification of a certain file and arrange all syncing according to this data. When you finished syncing at your office 1 it is successfully stored in your account. However, I assume when you move to your office 2 you immediately open your project file. That is the problem! Because, it still needs to be synced with the latest version of that file. If you open that file without initially waiting for sync to be completed and then close down the project file. It's latest
  8. Hello Charles, Surely there is a way to see which codes you have used for a certain section of your data. Let's say you open a text document with multiple pages (length is not important). It is possible you might have coded a section with more than one code, and even with 50 codes (again code count is NOT important) you can still see them. However, the more codes you have used the more space you need to display them. This is an expected requirement for ALL software, regardless from their purpose. Take Excel for instance, with a 14" laptop screen you can only see up until to th
  9. Hi again Janina, It is possible to see those data on a matrix coding query! All you need to do is to code and classfiy information in your data set. Then use matrix coding query via adding those variables into either rows or columns. For example: If you properly code your imported Facebook data, it is possible to see the username/author on the row and date, post, and other nodes on the columns. Yes, I do agree that it would have been much more easier if we had a "simple"!!! export functionality. I hope developers of QSR Mac team are trying to do their best to solve the problem. Ho
  10. Hi again Janina, Remembering your previous posts, I assume you are trying to export your Facebook dataset that you have imported from NCapture. As mentioned before, currently it is NOT possible to select and export a dataset in Nvivo for Mac. However, there is a workaround for this issue. Since you have your data in hand, just go and code however you like. Then use matrix coding query for the themes/concepts that you would like to create a chart for. Each matrix coding query will provide you a table, export this matrix coding query table as a docx file. Then open that file and
  11. Hi Janina, You are doing it right. Unfortunately, you can only export your matrix in word format with the current version of Nvivo for Mac. Therefore, first export your matrix table as a word file, then copy-paste it into excel. Sorry for the confusion.
  12. Hi Raphaela, When you cross-tabulate your overlapping data, matrix will provide you certain data, like number of coding references. However, it is not possible to show the exact overlapping text in your matrix. As you might already know, to see the exact content you need to click each cell. Thus, you will need to copy-paste each data. On the other hand, you might want to utilize framework matrices, which can provide you the summarized content of the overlapping data and let you export it as an Excel file. For detailed information, please refer to the link below: http://help-nv11.qs
  13. Hi Bhupesh, Thank you for your reminder. Yes, I forgot to mention to suggest export matrix table and use excel to create chart. Best,
  14. Hi Mitja, I have just seen your post. Sorry for the delayed response. I am also a great fan of Zotero. The problem you have mentioned is not a problem at all! It is something happens to me many times that after I imported my literature review into Nvivo I discover another great article which I felt obligated to add my literature review. All you need to do is saving the bibliographical data of that article into Zotero and attaching the article. Then re-export your library/collection and re-inport it into Nvivo. However, this time you need to make some adjustments when impo
  15. Hi Janina, It is possible to analyze Facebook and Twitter data as you described. First, you need to capture Facebook posts as a dataset. Then, you can create a chart of Facebook posts over time. If you need step-by-step guide, please refer to below link from the original help. http://help-nv11.qsrinternational.com/desktop/concepts/approaches_to_analyzing_twitter_data.htm#MiniTOCBookMark6
  16. Hi Pmabrouk, Please refer to this article in the official help. Hope this helps. Best.
  17. As being a qualitative research professor and Nvivo trainer, I am quite happy with the recent improvements of Nvivo visualization tools, especially with the transformation of tree maps into hierarchy charts. However, I do believe that visualization tools will become more efficient with some additional changes. Below I will try to explain my suggestions: 1) Y-axis options: While creating charts we can select what to display on the Y-axis such as number of coding references, percentage coverage, etc. However, in some situations we need to display the percentage of coding references in or
  18. Hi Corine, It is possible to automatically assign attributes to your cases. However, in order to do this you need to apply "auto-coding" for your classification sheet. Please refer to http://help-nv11.qsrinternational.com/desktop/procedures/automatic_coding_in_dataset_sources.htm Hope this helps,
  19. Hi Rahul, In order to see my custom fields in all the projects that I open in Nvivo, I have added "Speaker" field in application options menu. I was able to see this new field in my new blank projects. However when I open the sample project, new field does not appear. Yes, I was able to add this new field thorugh project properties but; As far as I know, changes in application options menu should effect all projects or am I wrong about it? Best,
  20. Hi again, I would like to share an update on this issue. The problem persist with the builtin sample project. Custom fields do not appear in the sample project file even you import a new audio/video file. Best,
  21. Hi Tane, Yes, I followed the same procedure to add custom fields. No matter how many times I tried, I have failed to see my fields on transcript window. Finally, I decided to reset all my options and then re-make all custom changes. After a re-start, now I can see all the custom fields on transcript window. Hope, this helps to all who will have the same issue. Best,
  22. I was able to add custom fields into my projects while I was using Nvivo 11 for Windows ( However, with the Service Pack 1 (, added fields do not appear on transcript window. I do not know anyone else has experienced the same issue, but I think there is a bug with the latest service pack update.
  23. Hi Tim, You did not mention about the version of your Nvivo for Mac. Assuming you have the latest version, I can make some suggestions. First of all, auto coding available in Nvivo for Mac but just for datasets. For detailed information please refer to official help. Secondly, case nodes are not just about people but also contains information provided by by people. If you take a look to the sample project file, all interview transcripts are coded as a case node under the name of interviewee. Thus, I would suggest you combine all your data into a single data set, so that you ca
  24. Hi Eavery, With respect to what you would like to find out, if you code a sentence to 3 different nodes that are belong to a parent node, that coding is not equal to 1 unique reference. This coding approach is problematic regarding internal validity. Let's say you have 4 different sentences as below: Sentence 1 -- coded with only exercise node Sentence 2 -- coded with both exercise and diet Sentence 3 -- coded with all three sub codes exercise, diet, and sleep Sentence 4 -- coded with both diet and sleep the issue of which of the above codings should be counted as 1
