  1. Hi, I undertook my data analysis in Nvivo for windows a few years ago. I'd like to check my data now but I've since switched to a mac and only have Nvivo for mac installed. Is there anyway to convert or access files on my mac? Or do I have to borrow a windows machine to do this? Thanks

    Highlight in different colours

    +1. 4 years on - it would be good to at least have some more options in the Highlight section - for example, being able to highlight at least 2 nodes in the text in different colours. At the moment, the highlighting doesn't actually TELL you much - other than it has been coded - if you chose to highlight for more than one node- because you can't see where coding for one node stops / starts - unless you use in combination with coding stripes.
  3. I would like to be able to run a query or search to see which nodes frequently overlap / are coded to the same bit of text - across all my sources. How to do this?
  4. Hi Lee, Aren't the coding stripes "the nodes" - so when you see the coding stripes you are seeing the nodes next to the transcript? Mine is attached. I've undocked my window to get more space and this is showing coding stripes for all nodes. It might depend a bit on preferred learning method - i.e. the coloured coding stripes are probably really easy for some people to see at a glace what they've coded- whereas the Atlas.ti tree branch version might suit others. Good Luck!
  5. I find the 'copy project' option counter-intuitive. Firstly, why not have a 'save as' option as per many other programs that researchers would be using? Secondly, when I log on- perhaps after a break of working on my nvivo analysis - I often start with saving a new copy and adding the date. However, I've discovered that when you 'copy project' - Nvivo doesn't move you onto the copied project - you stay working within the original project that you opened. This means that I have to Open up my project Copy the project and type the entire new name of the project in (don't seem to be able to just alter small details such as adding initials or date at the end of a project name) Close the current version Open up the new version that I want to work on today. Too many steps!
  6. I realise that you can do this via the 'print' option - but why not just have it as an export option? To do it via print - it means having a PDF printer installed. Would be much easier just to have as an export option. Also - I would like to be able to do this in a batch option. I don't want to have to go to each source individually - I would prefer to be able to tick an option that says something like 'export all sources with coding stripes' and just have Nvivo automatically save with an auto-generated name (e.g. [name][coding stripes][date])
  7. +1. This is common now across 99% of applications that I use - so I am always having problems in Nvivo with having to re-train myself to click-first-then-scroll!
  8. Hi Lee, With 800 nodes, I'm not sure that you would happily be able to see all nodes regardless if you are working in Nvivo or Atlas.ti. Have you tried adjusting the Coding Stripes & Highlight options? (For example, you can choose to see Coding Stripes->Most Coding or -> Least Coding. You can also choose selected nodes only. You can also choose to see highlight the text for coding for specific nodes) You can print this if you want to have a look / work on it outside of Nvivo. Once you get a view that you are satisfied with right-click and choose print. The Print Options should offer you "Coding Stripes" - print on same page OR print on adjacent page. If you print to PDF, you get a document that has your text and coding stripes on one page. I know this is not the exact answer you are seeking, but perhaps its a work-around for the moment.
  9. I want to create a report pretty similar to the 'Coding Summary By Node Report' (inbuilt in Nvivo10) but I want to be able to see the 'child node' coding. I have a theme (parent node) and about 5-6 child nodes under it. I want it all in one report (i.e. I don't want a separate report for each child node) - but I do want to be able to see at a glance which child node I coded the different bits of text at. How to do this as a customised report? Thanks!
  10. Can someone please confirm that I am correct in this? Or if there is a work-around, please let me know. I am working in Nvivo for Mac and just discovered there are no annotations or see also links. I am now trying to figure out how I might proceed. As each source can only have 1 memo linked to it - in Nvivo for Windows I was advised to create a standalone memo, for instance, "Theme X" and then use the See Also Link to link to the specific sections in each source that I wanted to write about. As I understand it, in Nvivo for Mac, there is no way to link a Memo to a specific section of Text. Memo's can only be linked to entire nodes or entire sources. Is this correct? If yes.... Does anyone have any good suggestions for working around it? I am used to being able to create a "compilation" Memo via See Also Links and use the annotations for noting to myself interesting tid-bits I might come back too. Seems like the power of Nvivo has been stripped right back if this is the case.
  11. Hi. I'm trying to autocode. I have formatted my document in Microsoft Word 2007 (PC) and applied Header Style 2 to each speaker (usually just Interviewer and Participant, though sometimes an extra person). The Header styles are clearly present in word ( I tested by inserting a TOC based on header styles) - but when I import to Nvivo and -> autocode the only option available is 'normal' - Nvivo isn't recognizing the applied header styles. I've attached a modified example of one of my transcripts. Transcription_example_lorum_ipsum.docx
  12. I mostly work on a mac, except for Nvivo. If I install Ncapture for Google Chrome on Mac- could I save the file to dropbox and then open in Nvivo on my PC? Anyone done this?
