  1. You can put annotations and See Also Links (and anything else) in the Quick Access Toolbar and then just click on it wherever you are to turn it off.
  2. Hi there, As a trainer I get asked this as well. The two-way "see also" link would be very useful, although I believe there is a bit of a workaround, just repeating it in each direction. On a related note however, the single question I get asked more than any other is why memos can only be linked to one item. I tell people that the developers probably thought that an additional link would just mean creating an additional memo. But it appears that many people would like to see the possibility of linking one memo to multiple sources. I suggest using a "see also" link within the memo as a workaround, but obviously having multiple links to the memo itself would solve the problem and provide the flexibility that many seem to need.
  3. Hello all, I'm consistently getting an error message when I attempt to print out a transcript for an audio file. The file itself works perfectly, scrolling with the audio, but whenever I try to print it out with the coding stripes I get a Print Error message that says "Length cannot be less than zero." Printing out the transcript alone is no problem. Any suggestions as to what's happening? Thanks.
  4. Hello all, I'm switching to a Mac at some point but obviously need to run NVivo under Windows 7. Does anyone have any thoughts on Parallels versus Boot Camp? I know that the latter will be faster, I'm wondering how much of an issue it is for running NVivo software. Many thanks for any feedback.
  5. I think this is an interesting issue - it's one I've heard before - hope the developers are listening.
  6. Hello all, I'm unclear about the performance options under Tools --> Options --> General --> Performance At what point does a "small" project become "large"? And while we're in that area, what does "enable plain text" mean and the "size of node." I can't find help for any of these items...perhaps I'm looking in the wrong place. So thanks for any advice anyone can give me.
  7. Hi there, In science, when something is done "in vitro" (in glass) it means in the test tube, simulated, as in a laboratory. When something is done "in vivo" it means it's done in real life, as perhaps in an animal model. In qualitative research (not usually done in a test tube!), the term generally means that you are using the actual wording of your informants, rather than creating a code that represents what it is they're saying. So the program allows for "in vivo" codes which means it just names them the way they are highlighted, much as Microsoft Word defaults to the first line of your document to create a title. So NVivo is a little play on the words "in vivo". Now you know!
  8. I was told it was a bug in the system - I think it's on Australian time!
  9. I have had similar problems, particularly when I exported to Microsoft Word and used two-sided printing - the second page was consistently cut off at the bottom. What I have discovered is that if you save it as pdf which is an option when you export, you get proper results. This is a workaround I suggest. Perhaps the problem is caused by Crystal Reports, the third party software that is used to generate reports. Hope this helps.
  10. Using web pages is a two step process - you need to import it into Microsoft Word (to create a .doc file) and then you can import it into NVivo which doesn't read HTML, just .doc and .rtf and .txt files. Depending on the frame arrangement you may not get the same results as the original web page. You can also do a screen capture with the Print Screen (PrtSc) button, but you will lose resolution. Good luck!
  11. Hi folks, The Glossary in my help file appears blank (Contents Index Search Glossary - the first three are fine). Is there something in there that my software didn't install properly? I can't seem to find out what is supposed to be in there. Thanks!
  12. Thanks for the reply - looks like we have to experiment a bit - this came up because another person in my research group thought the same thing was happening to her. In terms of typing things in, it was Lyn Richards who told me at her workshop that you had to use the software to create the query, but again, maybe we should experiment. Regards.
  13. Hi folks, Has anyone encountered problems with the Boolean operators in the text and other searches? Several of us were experimenting today and thought that perhaps the AND and OR were reversed, or at least working in the same way, i.e. both produce the same output. Perhaps we weren't entering the string properly, but I did use the dialogue box to enter the operators, since I've been told typing it in doesn't work, but the output appeared odd. Anyone using this regularly? Thanks.
