  1. Often I want to close a source without saving the changes I made. I use voice recognition software and sometimes when I make changes or mistakes by voice, the undo button doesn't work (it is faded out). At these times, I want to close the source without saving these changes so that I can open it again and continue on. Suggestions? Thanks, W.
  2. Hi all, By reading other posts, I have figured out that the only way in Nvivo 7 to automatically format my nodes into a hierarchical map is to export it into Decision Explorer (please correct me if I'm wrong). I've downloaded the trial version of Decision Explorer and now I don't know how to get my tree nodes into it! Any instructions would be much appreciated.
  3. Due to a disability which makes it impossible to type, I use Dragon NaturallySpeaking version 8 (version 9 as of Monday). In general, the compatibility is not bad in terms of navigating the program (Yeah for shortcut keys!!). However, the fatal flaw which makes Nvivo 7 almost useless for me is that there is no "select and say" function within documents that I'm trying to code. That is, generally if I am in a text document and say "select fatal flaw," that phrase would and be highlighted for me. In Nvivo 7 this does not work. Since I can't use my hands to drag the mouse to select words, I am really stuck. This " select and say" function works in most programs I've encountered that are based on a Windows model. Because Nvivo looks so similar to Word and Outlook, I had high hopes for it. The new Dragon version 9 promises to expand the "select and say" function so I'll report back if it does but otherwise, I'm running out of options. I need to use Nvivo 7 for both my academic endeavours and paid work.
