  1. Ann, I utterly agree with you that the transcription feature of NVivo is a good concept but with a very clumsy, poor, and inefficient implementation. IT is also quite difficult, you should know, to code to transcripts. In some cases codes applied to multiple lines of transcript count more than once (i.e., once for each row), and coding stripes have to span an entire row, no more, no less. IN sum, this is a very bad implementation of the transcription process, especially compared to what competitors offer (like MaxQDA). However, I would suggest one method that Nvivo really has developed far
  2. I just installed the Nvivo 9.1 patch (the 64-bit patch for my 64-bit install of the software). I tried to open my current project (already an Nvivo 9 project), and the software tells me that it must be converted before opening it, and prompts me to give the project a new name and location, but seems to use the same file extension (.nvp). Is this expected? Are NVivo 9 files incompatible with Nvivo 9.1, and as such must be converted, or am I experiencing an error? As a side note, I tried this with another Nvivo 9 project file, and it did the same thing, so I do not think it was just my file.
  3. I have just spent about two days trying to manipulate my data and coding structures in Nvivo for the central analysis of my project. I have just now realized that these two days of work have been completely wasted due to an undocumented feature of the software (at least I could not find documentation). That issues is that when one copies and pastes a node hierarchy (which I did in order to work from and consolidate a backup of my most important and largest node hierarchy), NVivo 9 recodes ALL of the coded references to the User that did the copy and paste, effectively eradicating the User-spec
  4. I would like to figure out how to make NVivo transcripts more efficiently work for my data analysis. The problem I am having at the moment is that NVivo does NOT seem able to apply a code to part of a transcript entry(i.e., it must code the WHOLE entry), and what's more, if I apply a single code to multiple entries, then it counts that code as occurring ONCE FOR EVERY ENTRY. I am hoping that there is a setting that I need to change, or that perhaps I am doing something wrong in setting up the transcripts, because it does not seem very helpful to limit coding capabilities to the transcript entr
  5. I see that the Tools>Customize dialog box that was present in Nvivo 8 was removed from version 9. Is there another way to customize keyboard shortcuts in Nvivo 9? I can't imagine why such a feature would be removed, since keyboard shortcuts really make a difference for many operations, including working with media files. Does anyone know how to do this in NVivo 9?
  6. Until recently, I have been running NVivo 8 through a Bootcamp (native) installation of Windows XP. However, I recently purchased Parallels Desktop (for Mac OS X - I run 10.6, "Snow Leopard"), so that I could access all of my NVivo content while working in Mac OS X. I found that recent versions of Parallels will actually import a virtual machine from the Bootcamp installation of Windows, and actually allow you to run Windows either way - natively through Bootcamp or virtually through Parallels. The native method (Bootcamp) allows all resources on the machine to be dedicated to doing nothing bu
  7. Mark, do you know specifically what type of foot pedal you have had success with? I know that the architecture of different foot pedals is different, thus leading to different ways they interface with the operating system. Has anyone found a resolution to this issue? I need to figure out how to get the VEC pedal (NCH's Express Scribe -compatible pedal) to work with Nvivo 8 also. -Jacob
  8. So, as it turns out, the solution was to disable the viewing of code stripes from the View menu. Hope this helps someone else in the future who has struggled with this annoyance as long as I have, especially with such a simple solution. I have found that having code stripes visible disables many different functions of the program, which recently popped into my mind after exhausting all other possible alternatives to resolving this issue.
  9. I have read the tutorials and searched for a solution, but I can't seem to figure out why I cannot import transcripts to attach them to the audio recording that I successfully imported. For some reason, the "Media > Import Transcript Entries" Menu option is greyed out, and it won't let me import anything. I have tried this on two different types of audio files, 16-bit WAV and 24-bit WAV. Can someone please tell me what I need to do in order to be able to import transcript entries for audio recordings?
  10. I am having a problem importing my WAV files into NVivo 8. I record my research material (interviews, ceremonies, rituals) at higher qualities in order to maximize clarity and analytic possibilities. I use two Marantz recorders (a PMD660 and a PMD620), and I record in uncompressed, WAV format. However, I have found from a few tests that NVivo won't import WAV files with higher bit-depths, such as 32 or 24. I don't know about sampling rates, but I am currently still conducting fieldwork and gathering data, and I would like to ask if anyone can provide the technical information on specifically
