  1. Dear All, I am developing a literature Review. I am analysing papers in pdf. More precisely I need to check what authors are cited within sections of papers. I am doing it manually, but I need to develop a control procedure to be sure that I am not missing anything. To do it, I thought I could use a text search criteria. Unfortunately, I am looking for the character "(" in papers since most of the references within papers are within brackets. Something like (Author Name, 2003). So I though I could use a text search criteria for "(", using the wildcard "?". Unfortunately since the character "(" is a special character the text search does not work. I tried this: "("* and also "(*" Do you have any Idea for developing a text search for the character "(" using Wildcards? I need wildcards since soon after the braket there is the name of the author. Thanks
  2. Thank you so much! It takes time to do it but it works in both ways described.
  3. Dear all, I am writing in the forum in order to know if there is a way in Nvivo to count the number of words of a source. I know that Nvivo has a word frequency function but what I need is to know that a document has for example 6000 words, that's it. Using the word frequency function I should export the Whole list and than sum it using Excel. I found a lot of very usefull tools, but I don't see a very easy function like this one. Is there a simply way to get this information in Nvivo? Thank you
