  1. Hello everyone, By default text search query tool does not search in annotions. If you need to locate text within your annotations you can use compund query tool. Go to the Explore>Queries>Compound Query. A dialogue box will be displayed, where you will see the fields you will need to complete for 'Subquery 1' and 'Subquery 2'. In both subqueries, keep the default option: 'Text Search Query'. Click the button 'Criteria'' -- That will display another dialogue box to specify the text you want to search for in subquery 1. Then, type the relevant text in the blank field. Click 'Search in' button with a drop-down menu. By default, you will see 'Text'. Change that to 'Annotations' Repete exactly the same steps and text to be searched in 'Subquery 2'. Run your 'compound' query and NVivo will search for your text in Annotations. Regards,
  2. NVivo offers different ways of keeping notes or linking related content. Annotations are text notes you can link to selected content within files. Although making annotations are common in social scientists, there are things that you might want to consider before using this feature. 1. You cannot code annotations. Thus, if your research strategy would require to code notes that you took, then you might want to use memos instead of annotations. 2. You can not export all annotations at once. Thus, if your research strategy would require you can export annotations for each file. 3. Annotations will not be taken into consideration while performing text search queries. If you need to look certain text within your annotations you can utilize compound queries. I hope this helps you all, Kindest regards,
  3. This is a request for an up-to-date manual for NVivo12. The language in the manual for Nvivo11 has changed in the newer version of the software and it makes the use of the help manual less efficient. This is also a question about hiding annotations. The NVivo11 help manual contains the following:http://help-nv11.qsrinternational.com/desktop/procedures/add_delete_and_manage_annotations.htm?rhsearch=annotations&rhsyns= In Nvivo12, I cannot find this feature. Please advise.
  4. Hi all, I still struggle with the limits of annotations in NVivo. I tend to annotate as I code, as I like to note ideas related to specific parts of transcript text. But I keep finding myself in trouble with this strategy: 1. It is not possible to actually view the annotations, without going to the source or coded node. I can pull up a list of annotations, but when I click one, it takes me to the source. I find this frustrating; I would like to click on an annotation and be able to JUST see the highlighted/referenced text of the source and the full text of the annotation. Of course I do not need to see the entire source, this is why I selected a small part of it in order to annotate. 2. Relatedly, I should be able to do this for multiple annotations - i.e. select some annotations and view the content (again, referenced text in the source and the annotation itself). 3. I would like to be able to cross reference annotations, a bit link the links function used for memos. I.e. I could create a link between memo 3 and memo 5 on my list, as well as between annotation 3 and memo 2 (for example). 4. I can't print JUST the annotation text or JUST the referenced text with the annotation (this seems to be an issue people have struggle with for years, based on forum entries since 2007). The only way to print annotations is to print the source, with the 'include annotations' check box selected; the annotations then appear as footnotes. But I want to see ALL of my annotations on one page. It is content that I have generated through analysis, so I think expectation this is logical. There are ideas in these annotations, but NVivo is making it hard for me to revisit and organize those ideas. Why are none of these things possible? Am I using annotations incorrectly? I am reluctant to use memos for a similar purpose, because while the annotations may be related in various ways, they are not necessarily about a single coherent subject or theme (which I document in memos). In fact, ideally I'd like to be able to insert annotations into memos. This also seems logical but not possible in NVivo. Does anyone have advice on this front? Many thanks! --- P.s. I'm using NVivo 11.2.2 for Mac but I've struggled with this in Windows before.
  5. When I'm reading my pdf sources and coding them, the highlight color is not the same as the color for the node I've applied. They all come out yellow even though I have a coding scheme using 6 different colors. How do I make the highlighting match? If Nvivo can't do that, is it possible for nvivo to launch and external pdf editor and then reflect the changes upon save? I use the color aspect of nodes extensively but need the pdf highlighting to reflect that. Thanks!
  6. Hi! Is there a way to generate a report and/or print annotations with linked source text in a single document? Thanks, Josh
  7. Hello, I'm trying to work with a transcript (mostly code it, but I like to annotate as I code) that I created in NVivo for Mac and I do not have the option to create an annotation. I have coding stripes on. Any ideas how to get around this? Thanks! Raychel
  8. Hello! This might be a pretty basic question, but I'm rather new to NVivo. My colleague and I have been making annotations on the same word document transcript for qualitative coding. Is there a way to easily sort our code (i.e. consistently highlight with different colors, etc) to distinguish who has worked on what? Any advice is appreciated.
  9. I'm attempting to do a text search via the query menu intending to locate previously added annotations to text. However, despite being able to view the annotations in the text source, my text search queries do not return annotations when I think they should. I am using NVivo 11 Pro and am selecting to run the text search using "All Sources". Any advice would be appreciated.
  10. Can someone please confirm that I am correct in this? Or if there is a work-around, please let me know. I am working in Nvivo for Mac and just discovered there are no annotations or see also links. I am now trying to figure out how I might proceed. As each source can only have 1 memo linked to it - in Nvivo for Windows I was advised to create a standalone memo, for instance, "Theme X" and then use the See Also Link to link to the specific sections in each source that I wanted to write about. As I understand it, in Nvivo for Mac, there is no way to link a Memo to a specific section of Text. Memo's can only be linked to entire nodes or entire sources. Is this correct? If yes.... Does anyone have any good suggestions for working around it? I am used to being able to create a "compilation" Memo via See Also Links and use the annotations for noting to myself interesting tid-bits I might come back too. Seems like the power of Nvivo has been stripped right back if this is the case.
  11. Hi there How can I best view annotations and export or copy them in such a way that I can e.g. use them in a word document in which I am writing up analysis? I don't need to see annotations for all sources at once, and I can see them at bottom of the screen. I also know that I can copy the text of annotations one by one but Id like to see all of them at same time and export or copy them easily. I am asking because I put mainly analytic notes in annotations , which are tied to specific sentences or words. Thanks! bregje
  12. I would like to see the annoying content length limitation on annotations removed. I would also like to be able to access (view) the content of ALL annotations in a project in a single output. At present this is only possible (to a limited degree) by generating a very generic text querry which takes a lot of time to run and can crash less powerful systems.
