  1. Does NVivo Mac support USB foot pedals for starting/stopping audio and video play? Are there particular brands that work or do not work for this, or ones that are recommended?
  2. Yes, I do. An external for me is typically a book, whose text I'm entering by hand. I'm not going to enter the whole thing; I enter the part I need to code and then I code it. I also realized only recently that this is what externals are for, so some documents like this are listed under internals. I would move them to externals, but there is no way to do that without losing one's coding.
  3. Currently, NVivo Mac will not let me edit a document when coding stripes are on, and will not let me turn on coding stripes while editing is on. It would be very helpful in creating proxy/external documents to be able to do this.
  4. Please add the ability to select regions of an image/PDF file. This is a crucial feature of the Windows version. I knew that without it NVivo could not handle handwritten documents. Today I also realized it means I cannot do a literature review in Mac NVivo, because some of the PDF articles are not machine-readable so they cannot be coded as text.
  5. The Windows version has a Find command like this and it is indeed very useful. I'd like to see this in the Mac version soon.
  6. I am scratching my head as to why NVivo cannot import raw HTML files (on either platform). From a coder's perspective, an HTML import is surely easier to do than more complicated formats like .doc, PDF or even RTF; the format is a very simple open standard. Instead, we have to use the NCapture plugin, which is far less user-friendly in two ways. First, there's the extra step of capturing and converting it rather than simply saving it; second, a PDF cannot be edited in NVivo, whereas raw HTML could be. I understand that NCapture preserves a page's appearance (from the additional non-HTML go
