  1. It would be hugely helpful if I could select colors of coding stripes. I have three years' worth of data, and it would help tremendously to be able to code each year a different color, so that when I look at results, I can see which ones came from which year. I am currently looking at writing across three years, and this would help me see changes / growth more readily. A friend has Nvivo for Windows, and she used the colors to code by source, so for example, when she looked at results, she knew which ones were from interview data versus observations. I've organized my data (sources as well as nodes) in folders, so I'm OK with organization, but it would be hugely beneficial to have nodes organized by color. Please make this an update in the short term. Thank you!
  2. Hi, I have coded numerous documents (PDFs and Word) and have had great success with coding stripes. I'm currently coding transcripts, and when I select "show nodes recently coding," nothing happens. Usually the coding stripes will show up alongside the item I'm coding, but in transcripts, this does not work. The current transcript was created in Nvivo (not imported), but even imported transcripts don't show coding stripes either. I can see that items have been coded based on the numbers indicated in the "sources" and "references" columns in Nodes. I can't find anything about coding stripes not showing up beside transcripts in the help guide, so I hope someone here will have a solution. Thanks!
  3. The last two times I have updated my Mac software (in the last month), when I opened Nvivo for the first time, it alerted me there's a new version of Nvivo for Mac, so I've had to install the "supposed" updated version. However, I'm not really sure if this is true (that Nvivo updates have been released since the one in September). I can't find a list of the Nvivo for Mac updates released (by date and version #) or what the new features are of any update(s), so I am not really sure that I've needed to update my Nvivo for Mac software, but why would the software revert to an older version just because I updated my Mac? For example, just now, I updated my version of OS X Yosemite and then Nvivo wanted to update. I looked at the version on my Mac, and it said 10.1.1, then after updating, it said 10.1.2. However, I'm pretty sure I did this already, like a few weeks ago when OS X Yosemite was first released and Nvivo said there was a new update then (this would have been in October). Currently, I'm using Nvivo version 10.1.2 with OS X Yosemite 10.10.1, and I understand that this is the "latest" version of each. So my question is this: for Nvivo, is the September update the latest one, or have there truly been two updates since September? If 10.1.2 is the same version as released in September, I can't understand why updating my Mac's software makes Nvivo think I never updated in the first place.
