  1. I am working on a project where two users are coding the same interviews. I am interested in comparing the text that users selected for each node (code) at the same time. For example, if User A selected the first two sentences of Paragraph A, and User B selected the last 3 sentences of Paragraph A, I want to be able to see both of these text selections side by side. I know that NVivo offers coding stripes, but this does not do a good job showing exactly which words were selected by each user. Highlighting merges both user selections, and I do not think there is a way to customize highlighting based on which user coded what. The inter-rater reliability only shows the amount of times each node (code) was applied, and clicking through to the text does not separate out selections by users. Is there some work-around that I am missing, or does NVivo just not support this type of functionality? Thanks!

    Text search context

    I have performed a text search with a wild card function, which has produced all instances of the words I needed. However it is bringing up the context of those words as well - I want to code/uncode those words only, without surrounding words. There are hundreds in my search results, so it is not desirable to do each of them individually, and if I do select all, it will code/uncode the surrounding words as well. How do I limit the results to those words only so that when I do a select all it only selects the specific words? Or is there another way to do this? Hope this all makes sense. Thanks in advance.
  3. I'd like to change a child node to a parent node, taking the references along. Drag and drop doesn't seem to function for me.
  4. I have a recurring issue with coding stripes. I run NVivo 11 on a PC. Coding stripes are often in the wrong place. This causes issues when I am going back to work to double check what I've coded and where, or when I return to work each day. Often the stripes are in the wrong place (a few inches down the screen). I know this is definitely the case because sometimes it happens a few seconds after I've done it, and in any case I can check by clicking on the respective stripe and seeing which part of the text it highlights. Is this a known issue with Nvivo 11? I have seen someone mention that when they printed out their coding it happened. Jenni

    Coding dragging problem

    I am coding using the drag and drop method in which document text is highlighted and dragged to the node. Highlighting works fine, but I can't establish a pattern of why the dragging intermittently fails about half the time. When it doesn't work, the highlighted text becomes unhighlighted and starts highlighting again where I click the cursor. The best I can tell, unless I click exactly on the black text that is highlighted (not on any whitespace, even it is the space in the "O" of the text), the drag will fail. I find that I can most successfully drag the highlighted text when I click on an "e" because the white space is small. This is highly frustrating because even then it doesn't always grab the text. Does anyone else have this issue? Is this a bug? If not, does anyone have a recommendation to make dragging attempts more successful? NVIVO 10.1.0 (1179) on OS 10.9.5 Thanks
  6. When coding transcripts that are attached to audio files (some imported and some created in NVivo), the script in the window jumps around, making it very difficult to move smoothly through the transcript. For example, I'll highlight a sentence and when I release the mouse, the view will jump to a previous point in the transcript. I have to scroll down to see the sentence that I've just highlighted. Then I can right-click and code the sentence, but when I click in the transcript box after coding, the view jumps to another point in the interview and I have to scroll down to continue to code the interview from where I left off. This adds lots of time to coding and means that it is very easy to skip over portions of the interview with all of the jumping around. This might be connected to the issue that another user was having in which the transcript window doesn't scroll down as you type, meaning that you can type, adding text to the box, but the window doesn't scroll down. I think it might be jumping back to the top of the entire interview for some actions and to the top of the timed box (with a start time and end time) for others.

    Export coding to share

    Hi, Any advice on how to share coding of a document (currently a source) with a colleague who does not use NVivo. Is there any way of exporting the document, showing the highlighting and node coding, like you can see with 'highlighting' and 'coding stripes' when working on a source? I have managed to export the whole document with highlighting, but no codes, or exporting all the text that is coded but not the names of the nodes they are coded to. Many thanks,
  8. Hej, In terms of setting up my project, I would like to find the best approach. I want to basically establish an actor-place network - who has been where, when and why and what have they generally said. Thus far, I have created a few cases based on persons, now I wanted to created new cases based on organizations, like Harvard University, but I seem to unable to link them, i.e. code one to the other? Do I have to code places as regular nodes?? Best, SCW
  9. Hi Thanks in advance for any help provided I feel pretty lost in this endevour as NVivo has many, many options and I'm not sure which one I need to take. I have manually produced codes for each of 9 focus group sessions, which I've laid out in 9 separate excel spreadsheets. There were between 6 and 8 of the same people in each focus group. As the example below shows, each spreadsheet is therefore made up of many rows, with each row containing a name, an illustration in the next cell, with the next cell containing the code and then the next one contains a memo/note re' this illustration and the code. So, four items in a row that I need to be able to analyze and which I've now imported. I have created 8 participants (cases) in a new NVivo project and have also imported all 9 spreadsheets with some of the columns being classifying and others being codeable. I have a few questions: 1) I want to be able to code (create nodes) within each of the 9 internal documents so that I can see how the nodes change over the weeks that I conducted the focus groups. (I have done this manually with cardboard so can see there's a 'trend' over the time period and want to be able to see this electronically.) 2) I want to be able to assign a node to one of the cases (person) so that the node is 'linked' to the person who made the comment. Then I can see how the nodes changed over time and how they changed per participant. 3) I noticed that because I haven't linked a node to a case the system is assigning the same node to the same 'source' when this is not the case. If I can assign a node to a case then I won't have this problem I have thought that maybe I can make a new node folder for each of the sessions nodes - so, 9 node folders with codes from each session inside the relevant folder - what do you think of that idea? But it doesn't solve the linking of nodes to cases ..... Thank you very much in advance for your help! Delia
  10. Hello. I have imported 10 pdfs as my source data (internal source) and have gone through each pdf and coded various terms at a node (I have 100 nodes). Is it possible to find out how many times each of the 100 nodes appear across all pdfs? I am looking for something similar to below: Code No. of times code appears across all source pdfs -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 1. user interface 21 2. technical 17 (codes 3 to 99 excluded to be concise) 100. client 9 I have tried running a Coding Query across all source data and included all codes but it does not give the desired output as above. I have also checked Word Frequency but it does not give you an option to specify the codes to search for across all source data. Is it possible to get the number of times each code appears across all source data?
  11. Hi! New to NVivo, here. I have done some initial coding and have about 10 nodes. Now I want to code those nodes into fewer, broader categories. What is the best way to do that? Thank you in advance! -Yaz
  12. I am trying to code my data to themes so I can see which themes are raised and how often. That is the easy part. However I need to be able to see which of these theme nodes that I have coded to are brought up by various specific denominations of my sources. I have similar and different themes being brought up by various different denominations of my data so thus far I have coded my data to one node per theme, opposed to coding it to one node per theme per denomination of data. To divide up my data into the different denominations I have coded all of my data to at least three nodes (rural or urban, after or before, and job title). So I can use a simple coding query to see all each of the different denominations of my data (for example all data that is rural, before, and management). But my issue is how can I bring up a node hierarchy that shows me all the different themes brought up by this specific denomination of my data. I need to be able to see a unique node hierarchy like this for all of my different denominations of my data. There will be over forty different themes brought up in my data so I would like a much more efficient and clear way of doing this than using a node matrix (because there are lots of empty cells in it). Using groups to do this may be useful but I cannot find a way of only allowing certain nodes to show up in a group. I am at the early stages of my project so if I need to be using a different approach to coding it is not too late for me to be using cases instead of certain nodes or something like that.
  13. Hello, I would like to some advice on counting the number of references that are coded at a particular node. I know that I can just click on the node and a count will appear for that node, but is there a way to account for cross-coded references? In other words, I would like to know how many references from my source have been coded overall, which I am having difficulty calculating because many references are coded to more than one node, so if I just count up all of the references that are coded at each node, I will inevitably end up double- or triple-counting some references. If my question is unclear, please let me know, and I'd be happy to try clarifying. Thank you so much for your help. Elisabeth
  14. Hello. I have imported the demographics of the interviewees in accordance with the instructions http://help-nv11.qsrinternational.com/desktop/concepts/organize_your_demographic_data.htm#MiniTOCBookMark3 and created case nodes for each of my interviewees as instructed. When I then try to 'Explore, Chart, Coding by attribute' (for example if I want to create a chart of the age spread for a particular node) the result does not show properly - I have attached a screen shot of what comes up with some questions. If anyone could guide me what I may have done wrong I would be very grateful so I can explore the demographic relationships more. Many thanks. MJW MJW Exploring via attributes NVIVO 11 Question.docx

    Matrix Coding

    When doing some matrix coding I note that the Mac version produces the Node Matrix with rows (respondent attributes) and columns (nodes), however it only supplies the raw data. It would be nice to have the percentages in there like the windows version. Cheers.

    Drag and drop coding

    I find NVivo's software quirk on drag and drop coding extremely frustrating. This quirk relates to text selection: once a section of text is selected it is intuitive to drag it quickly to the desired code, but in NVivo this doesn't work; instead the selection is dropped and a process of selecting new text begins. It seems that NVivo requires the user to click on the selected text, pause for over 1 second, and then begin the drag motion. This is painful - it doesn't seem like much but it interrupts fast working, especially when selections are dropped. Moreover, it diverges from standard logics in other software. For most software, to drop a selection and begin a new selection, the user must first click and release to reset the selection. Why doesn't NVivo follow this logic, rather than abandoning the selection as soon as the cursor is moved while still holding the click? Please make this very simple change; it would make coding so much faster and less painful!
  17. Hi, I was wondering if the community can help me understand something. I am trying to finish my thesis which involves a content analysis of a subsample of roughly 104 public comments. I developed a codebook with which myself and a second person can code these comments (codes are the child nodes of the parent node which identifies the variable I am measuring). I want to use Choen's Kappa as a measure of inter-coder reliability and from what I understand, in order to get a coefficient for one node across all sources, I do something similar to the excel sheet found at the bottom of NVivo's FAQ here (Also attached). I understand how Cohen's Kappa works mathematically with an example of two coders and two codes. However, I am having trouble understanding what is going on here with the spreadsheet. I just don't want to copy the formulae and placement without understanding what is being done to get an average kappa coefficient. So my question is this: Can someone break down the spreadsheet for me in descriptive terms? Even understanding What Sum EF, TA and TU would be immensely helpful. Pointing to other resources to lead me the right direction would be great too, unfortunately, I don't have any contacts at my university (and it's summer so feedback is nill anyway) that could help. Thanks in advance!

    Coding stripe

    Sorry folks if this is a basic question that I should know, but I'm a newbie at this. I've just imported my transcribed interviews and done some coding. I noticed that before I began there was already one coding stripe for the entire length of the document with the person's name. When I hover the cursor over it's one of my cases. All interviews or cases have this one coding stripe in place before I began. Should I leave this one or can it be deleted? What purpose does it serve? Many thanks in advance.

    Coding over 2 PDF pages

    Apologies if this is really simplistic or has been asked before... When working with PDF journal articles I can't figure out how to code across 2 pages, i.e. when you highlight a sentence at the end of one page and the sentence continues over the page, how do you highlight so that you code that sentence but without the header/page number that is usually at the top of a PDF being included in the middle (see screenshot for example). I tried uncoding but that splits the reference in two. Sorry- feel like there's a really obvious answer I am missing. Thanks!
  20. Hi, is it possible to create a simpler coding query and also visualizations of overlapping coding E.g., the explore diagram could be used to display all other nodes that are present in a selected node. this would really advance the conceptual development of an idea as it can show the presence and depth of ideas related to the selected node. Currently the only way I know how to collect overlapping coding in a systematic way for analysis is through a Group Query or through a matrix query, and neither include a visualisation. Thank you. Jennifer
  21. I am working with video data, I coded the transcript of the videos. Now I am writing up my thesis and I want to show the codes and the timeline. I use coding stripes, but since I coded the transcripts in chunks, NVivo highlights the entire chunk even though the codes only apply to a short period in the chunk. Thus it misleads the readers. Does anyone know any other way to display the codes and their corresponding duration in the timeline? Thank you.
  22. Is there any easy way to turn off the sources and references columns while coding an interview in NVIVO 11 for Windows? (see attached screenshot) They take up valuable screen space, making it more difficult to see the nodes that I am working with. If there is any easy way to turn these off while coding, it would be really helpful. Thanks for any suggestions.
  23. I have a question regarding coding the same piece of text to the same node. Let me explain: We have one artifact which approximately 90 "raters" commented on various pieces of the text. We are trying to detect which parts of the text were commented on the most so we want to show points of overlap (the "hit rate" of various portions of text) as well as distinct features of why they were noticed (for instance, did they code for grammar, syntax, content, etc.?). Example: 5 raters commented on the first sentence of the text and 3 of those were grammar corrections. Any suggestions on the best coding structure for this in NVivo? Is it possible that we will need to upload 90 different documents (for the different raters) and then merge them for the analysis? Many thanks!
  24. Hello, We have a set of about 27 nodes and we want to find out which data (participant interviews) are coded to more than one node. We want to know which of our nodes are similar to other nodes - either overlap or complement. For example: if something is coded as a belief is it also coded as a priority and a role? or something else as well? Is the best way to do this by pulling up each node and then using coding stripes to see which nodes are similarly coded? We have ideas/assumptions based on our coding but would like to know if there is an easier way and one that is more methodological? Thanks! Margo

    Node Search Function

    Dear QSR team, I made the below request about a year ago, but it appears you have not had a chance to implement it, so I thought I'd restate my interest in this new (straightforward) feature: Could you please add a 'node search function' to the toolbar. You already provide this feature, but I have to use a work-around to get there. At the moment, in order to search my nodes I have to use the 'query' tab and then click on 'selected items' and then select 'nodes' to get the option to search all nodes. This is rather time consuming and could probably be fixed quite easily with a 'nodes search button' at the top level. I appreciate that for some users this feature will be less essential, but my research projects are rather large (longitudinal), requiring me to develop several hundred distinct nodes/sub-nodes, which makes it hard to remember them all (and which can lead to unnecessary duplication of nodes). Please find attached screenshots of the work-around I currently using to get there. Thanks and all the best, Tobi
