Things to consider about project conversion
canarik posted a topic in NVivo Use CasesHello everyone, When using Nvivo there are situations where you might need to share your project files with your colleagues. Moreover, you might need to switch from Windows to Mac or vice-versa. In such scenarios there some rules that you would better take into consideration: Best practice : Always share or convert a copy of your original/master project file! General rule regarding Nvivo versions: No backwards compatibility. Projects created in older major versions can be opened in newer major versions—e.g. you can open version 12 projects in NVivo release 1—the older-version project file is copied and the copy formatted for the newer version—the original file is not changed. Projects created in newer major versions cannot be opened in older major versions—e.g. you cannot open release 1 projects in NVivo version 12. Minor versions are compatible—e.g. you can open a project created in NVivo release 1.4 in release 1.5, and vice versa Please note that there is an exception to the 3rd rule; Due to database improvements, NVivo release 1.6 is like a major version in terms of compatibility—you cannot open release 1.6 (or following) projects in NVivo release 1.5 or earlier. Release 1.5 and earlier projects are copied and upgraded if opened in NVivo 1.6 or later. General rule regarding Nvivo OS Platform: Nvivo for Windows has a built in conversion tool. Please note that above version rules apply to all platform conversions If you are using Nvivo for Windows, you would like to share your project with colleagues who also use Nvivo for Windows, you can create a copy and share that copy. You can do this either outside of Nvivo using Windows's "Copy-Paste" feature or Nvivo's "Create a copy" feature as outlined here. If you are using Nvivo for Windows, you would like to share your project with colleagues who use Nvivo for Mac, you need to covert your project file. To do this please follow the steps outlines here. If you are using Nvivo for Mac, you would like to share your project with colleagues who also use Nvivo for Mac, you can create a copy and share that copy. You can do this outside of Nvivo using Mac OS' "Duplicate" feature. Please save and close your project before creating a duplicate. If you are using Nvivo for Mac, you would like to share your project with colleagues who also use Nvivo for Windows, you do not need to convert your project. You can create a copy and share that copy. You can do this outside of Nvivo using Mac OS' "Duplicate" feature. Please save and close your project before creating a duplicate. When sharing projects for conversion, Nvivo for Mac users should not use "Export project" feature, since exported file will be a .qdpx file which has multiple limitations listed here. Instead, as mentioned above, please use Mac OS' native "Duplicate" feature. I hope this will be helpful for you. Regards,
Hi! So I've been very frustrated for the last couple of weeks. I've been trying to simply import a dataset (Excel spreadsheet) to a project on NVivo. I make it to the 2nd step where it asks about date interpretation, numbers, etc... When I click next it gives me the rainbow loading symbol and then the program does not respond which forces me to force quit the whole application. Does anyone know of any solutions to this? It's been quite frustrating as a first-time user of the program.
I am running a team project in which some of the people coding the data use Macintosh machines, but the main database has to be in NVivo Plus for Windows (so we can machine-code the data). The University has a site licence for NVivo Pro. Do I have any options for running the project other than installing a Windows virtual machine on each of the Mac's?
Word Cloud Not Exporting Correctly
sahillis posted a topic in NVivo for MacHello, When I export a word cloud from NVivo for Mac (v. 11.4.3) it doesn't export the entire word cloud. The lower 1/2 of the word cloud is cut off during the export process. I've tried exporting as PNG, JPG, and TIFF with the same results. The attached file demonstrates what is occurring. Not sure what I'm doing incorrectly here. I've come up with a workaround by printing to a PDF file but it would be nice to have the capability to utilize the smaller jpeg files in my dissertation. Respectfully, Shaun Hillis macOS High Sierra (v. 10.13.3) NVivo for Mac (v. 11.4.3)
Coding Stripes - fail to turn on
UoB posted a topic in NVivo for MacHi there, I would like to use coding stripes, whilst coding my data in Nvivo for mac. However, when I click into the coding stripes section all of the options such as 'all nodes coding' cannot be selected (see attached print screen). Why is this and what do I do to change it. When I look at tutorials they simply suggest to select these and they will show up. Thanks.
Coding stripes lost after upgrading project from 10-11 Mac
cestus posted a topic in NVivo for MacI have recently upgraded a project from Nvivo 10 for Mac to 11. After opening the project, I found that one of my heavily coded internal documents now shows a total of 0 nodes/ stripes. As I am in institutional uses, I am unable to use my now expired key with NVIVO 10, though I have the original .nvpx file. Is there any way to open my original file without upgrading to explore why my coding has disappeared? What might have caused this and how might i recover my coding? Thanks.
Problem selecting text in source documents
Elizabelle_MKE posted a topic in NVivo for MacHello, I'm a recent convert to Nvivo for Mac from the Windows version (run on Parallels). I am working with a project that was created in the Windows version, with source files uploaded in .doc format. I've converted it to a Mac project and am now having issues when I try to selecting multiple paragraphs of text at once to apply a code. I'm not sure how to clearly describe the issue, so I've put examples in the attached PDF (I tried inserting them in the body of this post but wasn't able to get it to work). Is there anything I can do about this? I have over 400 transcripts, so I'm really hoping there is a solution other than going back to the original .doc files and re-uploading them into Nvivo or returning to using the Windows version with Parallels. Thank you kindly for your help, Elizabeth text selection problems - example.pdf
Coding stripes missing in transcripts
cjchristi posted a topic in NVivo for MacHi, 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!
NVivo for Mac update crashes
mariajckrom posted a topic in NVivo for MacHi, I have a student licence for NVivo for Mac. Today when I opened the program, I got a message that an update to version 10.1 was available. I downloaded the .dmg file and it installed fine on my computer, replacing the older version (10.0.4). The program also opened apparently without any problem, but then when I tried to open my Ph.D Project that I had created in the older version, the program crashed. I have tried reinstalling the program 3 times, and each time the same problem happens. I have restarted my computer, but nothing, the problem persists. Please HELP. I can't work because I cannot access my data. Maria
Hi, I have a relatively big size (about 2 GB) Nvivo for Windows project file. However, when I try to save as a Nvivo for Mac file, conversion process interrupted by an error saying "column 'Source_Item_id' does not belong to its table". I could not figure out how to solve this issue. Any help will be much appreciated. Project Conversion Error Log.txt
