  1. Hi Pat, Are you suggesting an easier way to do this than my first suggestion ("For multiple child nodes")?
  2. Hope I understand what you mean. Here's a suggestion: For multiple child nodes: 1. Open Coding Query 2. Select the child nodes as Coding Criteria 3. Under Query Options select Merge Results into Existing Node and select the parent node For one child node: 1. Open child node (in Referece View) 2. Select all text 3. Code to parent node (drag text to parent node)
  3. Great ideas! Would definitely improve work flow.
  4. Don't think so. You can either make multiple attributes for authors: Author 1, Author 2, etc. or attribute values: 1. Smith, 2. Steve, 3. Smith & Steve ... I would probaply do the first thing.
  5. Not here. No result in the "detail view". Just a new set. Remember: Under Query Options choose Create Results as New Set. I'm really sorry if I'm missing something
  6. Hope I understand. Try run the Query with these additional settings: Select "Items in Selected Folders" (not the default "All Sources") Click "Select..." Mark the Cases folder. Run Query.
  7. Using Nvivo8. Hope it's the same as in 7. Try right click matrix, choose Matrix Cell Content -> Coding References. Tells you much more. You can double click the cells to show the associated content. To show all coded content of a source... Tools -> Reports -> Coding Summary. Select Sources to be included in the report. Select Coded text and content range. Go! To compare two (or more) Sources regarding one "dimension" (Node): Coding Query. Choose In: Selected items. Select the items (sources). Select the Node(s) Run Query. Does this help?
  8. Would suggest a Matrix Coding Query. Use sources as rows and nodes as columns. Check out Coding Stripes. See Nvivo Help.
  9. OK, In Same Coding Reference is not the right Coding Search Operator. Try: In Same Scope Item Or In Custom Context -> Specify... -> Entire Text Does it work now?
  10. 1. Queries -> New Query -> Compound -> choose the relevant nodes in Subquery 1 and 2. Choose AND between them if you only want to include sources where the two nodes are OVERLAPPING. To find the sources where both nodes are present (somewhere) choose NEAR Content, Options and In Same Coding Reference. 2. Under Query Options choose Create Results as New Set.
  11. For me it only happens under some circumstances (not yet identified). But try another thing: 1. Open Volunteering in NV8 2. Go to Internals->Focus Groups 3. Open Volunteers Group 2 4. Go to Free Nodes 5. Open Motivation 6. Create a New Free Node "x" or whatever (so you can save). 7. Save Project. Result: NV8 will scroll down in Motivation (Detail View). Doesn't happen if you don't go through step 2 and 3. Just a little funny thing. Suppose we just have to identify the specific circumstances under which the "scroll up" problems occur.
  12. I don't think so. Of course you can see when the node was created/last modified in List View. You could, I suppose, maunally create a saturation curve from this information.
  13. Asterisk function

    Will this be fixed? Can anyone think of a workaround (I really need this function)? Thanks.
