  1. Hi there - thank you so much for your response and suggestion of a file saving routine to prevent just this kind of situation. For now I'll just have to pull my socks up and get on with redoing my lost work.... Best! Tabitha
  2. Hello - I had a project open when my computer suddenly restarted. When it turned back on, I attempted to open the file again and a window informed me that it had been damaged and asked if I would like to try to repair it. It was unable to be repaired and prompted me to restore from a recovery file which I did. Unfortunately, the recovery file is missing about half the work I did and I'm quite distressed. Is there any way I might recover this work? My project and related files are stored on OneDrive, and I wonder if this has sometime to do with my problem.
  3. Hello, I have been trying to change the amount of context displayed when I call up a node to review its contents. At present, the coded text is displayed along with all the context text which accompanies it under each particular interview question. Nothing seems to change when I change between different options under Node > Coding Context (narrow, broad, custom etc...). I suspect that this is because the original source documents, created in Word, feature each interview question along with its response in separate cells of a table and for some reason, Nvivo is unable to deal with this. Alternatively, I suspect that it could be calling up all the text I originally coded to match each separate interview case? I hope I am simply missing something and that there is a way to be able to view my coded references without so much text. Thanks!
  4. It is easy to view all the documents which belong to a set, but doesn't seem possible to easily see all the sets to which one document belongs (without going through each individual set to see if the document is there and keeping track independently from Nvivo). Is there a way to view this info? I don't always remember what sets I have added particular documents to, nor do I always keep up with adding documents to the sets they should belong to as soon as I add them to the program, and I want to be able to access this information quickly and efficiently so I can make sure everything is in the right place for analysis...
  5. Hi - I am also experiencing this. I noticed it when calling up nodes to scroll through the references. While looking through the references of a particular node, I wanted to see all other nodes coded in the same text, but noticed that the strips are often not in the right place. Further, the ribbons don't update properly if I decide to code text to other nodes while viewing the references of one particular node... I'm beginning to wonder if it has something to do with zooming in and out on the text. If I zoom in or out to make text bigger or smaller, the ribbons should shift to following the text they are coded with. They do shift, but not accurately.
  6. I auto coded for terms vaccin+ (vaccine(s), vaccination(s) etc...). What is really annoying me however, is that when I call up the node to view all instances of these terms, the software presents separate references for multiple instances that are within the same sentence/paragraph/context thus making the summary very long and repetitive. Is there a way to get the program to cluster instances which are close to each other (within the same paragraph perhaps) so that the reference summary isn't so long and repetitive? I've attached an image which hopefully helps to illustrate what I'm getting at. Each of the instances of the term I've underlined in red is highlighted separately - so all that grey context text is repeated another 5 times!
