  1. Hi Canarik, Thanks for your reply. Unfortunately, I have not checked back if somebody answered my question! Your solution would indeed resolve the problem. However, coding in NVivo is not my preferred way of reading and annotating, although the graphical user experience and Pdf handling has improved quite a bit. Let's see what the future holds… Thanks again for your answer!
  2. Hello, I am using Zotero's function to extract annotations from Pdfs and would like to import it into NVivo. While NVivo can import extracted annotations in form of memos, there is the problem that the HTML code Zotero uses in order to store the extracted annotations is imported in NVivo as plain text and therefore basically useless for further analysis in NVivo. While copying and pasting the text resolves the problem, it prevents the automatized treatment of hundreds of annotated PDfs. As far as I have tested it, this is not specific to Zotero, but applies to any other reference manageme
  3. Hello, I've imported the tweets from various twitter accounts. Each of them have 1000+ (even 10.000+) tweets, but NCapture stops at 442 tweets. Tried it again with Chrome with the same results. Therefore I've got the following questions four you: How many tweets get imported from an account that has thousands of tweets? Is there a time (last X days, weeks, etc.) or other limit? How can I get NCapture to export all tweets? Thanks, Patric
  4. The right-click menu isn't the problem. If I remember right, in version 9.0 we could see the shortcuts in these menus (option+shift+I for "import document", etc.). It appears that in 9.1, some of them disappeared.
  5. Thank you for your answer. I'm very interested what other users' opinion is on the question you raised. Especially the one about the maximum number of colors made me think about my way to work through my nodes. There are two types of nodes. The first one functions like "variables" that I want to control during the whole process of analysis. The second type is more flexible, that is, I need to know only for a short period where the nodes (information) lie. The point is that there aren't more than 3-20 nodes that I'm working on simultaneously, considering the two types of nodes. Therefore, a set
  6. Hello, Is it possible that under NVivo 9.1 disappeared the shortcut indications from some of the contextual menus ("right-click menus")? As in Internals-> right click: I cannot find the shortcuts for "importing documents" anymore. If this isn't just buggy behaviour, could you bring these back in a future update? Thanks
  7. Hello. I know this topic has been brought up several times. I decided to post it again, as I recently had big difficulties to find out which codes were applied in a project. The fact that I didn't code the project myself, increased my difficulties to understand the coding done by my assistant. Surprisingly, the coding stripes were of little help, as I couldn't find the appropriate mix between least, most or any custom set of nodes that indicated through all the document which nodes were applied. I know that the density bar shows a list of the nodes, but this isn't a big help either for a rapi
  8. Absolutely. This time pdf-implementation leaves little to nothing to wish for (there are even pdf bookmarks!). As advertised, the accents in spanish look perfect. Great work and thanks from the spanish-speaking community.
  9. Hello. Is there a way to incorporate more options under the Display tab (under Options), in order to define Detail View Bottom or Right, Coding Stripes On/Off, etc. as default settings? I'm especially thinking in the way Adobe lets you save customized workspaces. Thank you.
  10. I was so looking forward to a better implementation of Pdf documents in NVivo 9, but was greatly disappointed when I used the trial software for the first time this morning. In short, NVivo 9 is far from reading Pdf-documents as it should: all my spanish Pdfs have all special characters substituted. Just a sample of some other problems: Original: http://postimage.org/image/34ejlk4tg/ Nvivo "interpretation": http://postimage.org/image/2r3sr4e78/ This is not the solution I was looking for.
  11. hello, i'm working in a research project that compares two different geographic areas in highland ecuador with the same coding structure, etc. (each of the two area has one researcher assigned). i've read in the help documentation that sets can be used to save "the documents, memos and nodes that belong to a specific team member". what i've tried: 1. create a new set "researcher 1" 2. add set members 3. then the filter button 4. in the next dialog: Look for (all), created (anytime) by selected (researcher 1) 5. find now 5. that returns me to the select project items dialog. there i
