I installed Nvivo 12 on my iMac (running latest Catalina OS) without i installing Nvivo 10. Everything works fine except for an immediate crash when I press the dataset button or try to import bibliography data. I get an immediate crash before any dialogue window comes up. I read up the forums and discovered I maybe should have uninstalled Nvivo 10 first so have now deleted that. Is there an easy fix or should I uninstall Nvivo 12 and reinstall it again? If so do I have to track down all the install files in libraries and system folders? Has anyone else had this crash scenario? Any help much appreciated.
ianjgrant posted a topic in NVivo for MacHi, I wonder if you can help: Is it correct NVivo for the Mac cannot import reference lists from products like Endnote yet, like the windows version? If so, it seems like a fundamental part of pre-research / subject review process is missing. In the meantime, can you comment on the workaround approach I have taken: Basically: (1) I export my bibtex reference list (1000+) to csv via JabRef. (2) Clean up the resulting file (3) Import as a Source Classification Sheet (3a) This just brings in the (4) Import the PDF (collected via a mac 'smart folder') to NVivo. (5) Manually associate each PDF item with on the source classification list... Is there any point in this approach? Will it save typing in the bibliographic data again? Also, should the reference list import for mac be in progress - can I suggest supporting a range of bibliographic tools by using some file format many of the tools can export? (bibtex, mendeley, sente, papers, Refme etc.) Thanks in advance. Kind regards Ian
