  1. Thank you. File is structured with individuals as Set (and Cases, which is straightforward). Then it is possible to do anything I want with node matrice. Another question: I tried the new function that allows to import data directly from a SPSS file. I couldn't find a way to get the open-ended questions on a "document page": there are embeded in a grid which is not a very practical layout for coding. Not a big deal. More bigger problem: the import stops at 100 cases, which makes the function useless: a "quantitative" study with open-ended questions has often a few hundred cases. Or did I miss something?
  2. Dear all, Sorry to ask a question that has been asked many times. One of the issue I have with nvivo is choosing how to structures the source files. Having one file per case has advantages and disadvantages. My experience is that nvivo has trouble when working with many separate sources. Merging the cases in the same file earns in processing speed (nvivo but also human processing). But I cannot access to some functions when all cases are merged in one source file. Nvivo is more powerfull with each case in a separate source document. I would have liked to have your point of view, the pros and the cons of having cases aggregate in one source or each one in separate sources. This project consist open ended questions of a survey. So I have about 3000 individuals. But we can discuss this issue more generally: at which point it is a good practice to separate the sources?

    Italian as content

    I'm interested to work with french, german and italian texts. Do you plan to implement italian as text content language? (or a way to implement custom lemmatization dictionnaries)
  4. My question is simple: does nvivo 9 work with windows 10?
  5. I notice an annoying problem with a big project of 1700 items: shifts appear in the coding! At first I thought it was accident, and I corrected them. But I'm beginning to realize that it is almost systematic. I do not understand what occasioned them, but it's pretty scary to see my coding work deteriorate ... Is there a solution?

    Bug in nvivo 9

    I can't reproduce the problem anymore. I 've sent you anyway the errors log files. Thank you for reactivity Alex

    Bug in nvivo 9

    I found a bug on Nvivo 9. I had noticed long ago, but since it is special circumstances and not a very important problem, I had forgotten it. It is impossible to copy more than one node in a node of the window "find result". Nvivo closes unexpectedly.
  8. I worked for years with nvivo. My greatest disappointment is the slowness of the software (I've complained many times here). If you have a dataset of a some size, each operation takes several seconds. This does not seem serious, but when you repeat some coding operations 1000 times, it ended up taking time. The problem actually started with version 8. I went from version 8 to version 9, because the advertising said it would improve the speed. But in fact, the improvement may be 20%, which solves nothing since, for example, from 10 seconds to 8 seconds, it is still 8 times too long! Now we are told that version 10 is faster. But what is it really? is there people working with "normal" corpus of qualitative research (eg, 50 interviews is 1000 pages)?
  9. Here is a solution (by converting classification into nodes) http://forums.qsrint...?showtopic=3436
  10. Hi, I have many classifications of sources. So my question is what and how can I do with these classifications? I want to analyse the distributions of node by source attributes, but it seems very laborious. The only easy features I've found is to visualize sources by attributes. Does anyone have a solution to use these classifications. I should mention that I sought for a long time and the only option I've found is to create node. Does anyone know a way to pass from source classification to node classification. Thank you Alex oopss!! sorry for the multiple post : I received an error message and though that nothing was published

    Fix problem that causes corrupt files!

    For a long time I wish that qsr make a more stable, lighter, more practical in terms of usal practice of research (efficiency, flexibility, speed). I lose a lot of hours because nvivo often freezes. But I had only once a corrupted file: am I lucky?

    search folder

    search folder is a nice feature I've just discover now .... but the search form miss "not coded at"
  13. I've found my previous issue. It was just the reverse problem (and with nvivo 8) http://forums.qsrint...?showtopic=3436 I'm still looking for a solution to automatically transform attributes which are pointed with a series of nodes to a classification edit: I've solve my problem in ten minutes of manual coding ;-°
  14. Hello, I 've searched for hours, maybe it's easy !!?? I have a series of nodes that I want to turn into classifications. In other words, attribute values are stored in nodes, and I want to stored them in classification. It seems to me that in NVivo 8 it was possible to transform nodes into classification by the way of the collection (set) and then export in an excel sheet and re-import as classification sheet. But I do don't see how to achieve this with nvivo9. Any idea? Thanks Alex
  15. I'm not sure to fully understand your method, but it should work (do you select "automatic select hierarchy"?). Otherwise I have a method which is a bit "prehistoric". I usually often create an "allnode" (with aggregate fonction (nv9) or merge (nv8)). Then with a simple coding query = everything that is not coded at allnode. It's pretty simple, very robust and the "allnode" code is useful for other "administrative operations".
