  1. I am using nvivo for a literature review and have coded several pdfs against research questions. I have imported the pdfs and they are saved as "files" in Nvivo and are titled by article title. I'd like to create a framework matrix using the document name (i.e. title) as the rows, and the research questions as the columns. When I create a framework matrix it appears I can't select files as rows. I've tried creating "cases" and "sets" from the files in nvivo. Still no luck creating a framework matrix. For example, when I select "cases" all I get is a blank matrix as per the attachment. When I select sets I can't select the sets of pdfs I have created from the files. I've included screenshots for both. Any suggestions or help/tutorials that discuss creating framework matrices from files?
  2. I'm facing some bugs in regards to framework matrices in Nvivo 12. Multiple cells have duplicate text, sometimes repeating the text 3 or 4 times. (I reported this bug here https://nvivo.canny.io/bugs/p/auto-summary-in-framework-matrix-creates-duplicate-text in February.). A more recent observed issue - it also seems that the framework matrix also doesn't pick up all the data. For example, I had multiple entries coded under "Person A" and "Observation A". None of these showed up in the framework matrix though they do show up in other queries. In fact the whole column "Observation A" is empty. This bug was new to me and I had been building my findings off results from framework matrix though I'm not sure I trust it. Any suggestions?
  3. Hi, When I import a word document with a table in it and code a selection of text from within the table, the reference view shows the text from the entire table, with my selection in bold. In reference view, I can cut out the surrounding text by deselecting 'rich text'. However, when I auto summarize in a framework matrix, the text from the entire table comes up in each of my cells and I can't find a way to only display my selected text. Any help would be much appreciated! Cheers Jon
  4. Hi all! I'm new here and quite new to Nvivo as well. Over the past couple of week I have been working at coding interviews according to a well established coding tree. I now need to create framework matrices with interviews in the rows and themes and sub-theme as columns. In order to do I need to create case nodes for each of the interview. However, when I do there is no trace of the coding I have done on the interviews. In the case nodes the appeared to have only one code and one reference. The procedure I used to create case nodes for each interview was: -when in 'source' - 'internals' -selected the relevant documents- right click on the mouse -'create as' -'create as casee' Does anyone know what I could possibly do wrong and how I can fix the issue? How can I produce the matrices without coding everything from the start? Many thanks for any advice you may provide
  5. OK - so one of the best tools in NVivo for windows IMHO is the framework matrix tool. It's the almost perfect way of creating a synthesis from a selection of quotes. It can do a very similar thing to a matrix coding query but then gives you not a number or a bar chart but the actual data/quotes so you can write a synthesis, create links to originals and both explore and write about the data. BUT Why is it still so limited/hobbled by its past? SPECIFICALLY: You can only use case nodes as rows. Why can't you use thematic nodes or sentiments? SOME BACKGROUND Well in its original form it was a tool for this - writing a case synthesis so you would view the data for a case and then write a summary - you could order the cases based on a dimension for comparison to help spot patters too. (It's all detailed in Ritchie and Lewis - see https://uk.sagepub.com/en-gb/eur/qualitative-research-practice/book237434 with details for NVivo here http://www.qsrinternational.com/nvivo-support/faqs/how-does-nvivo-support-the-framework-method) BUT - WHY LIMIT IT SO MUCH? It has a history - but should history limit us to other potentials that could (surely) be implemented? For example you can hack this by copying or creating nodes for theme or sentiment (or query results etc. etc.) and moving them to cases folder in order to create "thematic" or "sentiment" cases and then create framework matrix from those to enable a framework matrix comparing themes or sentiments or query results x themes. I've been doing just this with large datasets of survey responses where I need to write a summary synthesis for a sentiment against an attribute within a subset of the data. Now that's easy to run as a matrix coding query (rows = sentiments saved as nodes, columns = case classification attributes, filter = topical nodes of interest) but why can't I run the same query via the framework matrix route and have the awesome option of viewing the data for each cell (a la matrix coding query or cell view in framework matrix) and having a space to write a summary of it (a la framework matrix)? This to me would really help in bridging the gap between the power of the matrix coding query tool and the poverty of integrated writing about what is shown. SURELY THIS IS SIMPLE? The entire programming and display framework is already built in to NVivo so hopefully it's just* a case of synthesising the options of a matrix coding query with the display and writing areas of a framework matrix. it might need a new term - synthesis matrix? summary matrix? but i should hopefully enable a synthesis of the strong rationale and theorisation of synthesis that underlies framework matrices with the power of the matrix coding query to enable exploring (for example) sentiment x case attribute filtered by node and then write a report summarising what each cell shows. *just is a guess here - it could be a nightmare!
  6. I'm using NVivo 11 Pro (version and experiencing extremely slow response (up to 5 minutes) when selecting rows or columns in the framework matrix, or selecting items for search criteria when creating search folders. The slow response occurs when the system tries to display the options available to select, for example the list of nodes. I did not have this problem using NVivo 10. I'd be very grateful for any ideas, suggestions.... Thanks Sharon
  7. I'm using NVIVO 10. I just watched the webinar on using Endnote with NVIVO. Importing PDF's of references from Endnote into a particular project file has two HUGE space-related problems: 1) It inflates the size of the project file, thereby slowing down the operating speed of NVIVO. 2) Since I use many references in several projects, I wind up having to store the same PDF in several different NVIVO project files, thereby gobbling up my hard drive. Is it possible (or could you make it possible in a future version) for NVIVO to somehow search and operate on pdf's that exist in an external file on the same hard drive on which the NVIVO project resides? I, personally, have a Downloaded References folder on my hard drive, to which Endnote links for the references I enter. Could NVIVO be set up to link to and then work with the pdf's in this same hard drive folder -- which will remain external to every one of my NVIVO projects? Thanks!
  8. Once I have created a framework matrix, e.g., ExampleMatrix, and have started filling it with case nodes as rows and nodes as columns, how can I obtain a list, or a set of all the case nodes that are used in ExampleMatrix? I know it is possible to create a search folder that would contain all case nodes used as rows in framework summaries. But how do you limit the search folder to a given framework matrix (and not all of them, because I have created more than one)? I have tried to find a suitable query, but to no avail. I thought that I could create a set with ExampleMatrix, and then create a query to find case nodes that are included in the set. But the set thus created is not searchable. I understand that I could have created a set right at the beginning, and put in that set all case nodes that I wanted to use as rows in ExampleMatrix. I did not do so (I actually ended up adding case nodes to ExampleMatrix progressively), and now I wish I could easily view a list of all my case nodes that are part of ExampleMatrix. Of course, one can see a list of case nodes included in ExampleMatrix by opening the matrix's properties, but there is not much printing or handling that you can do with it.
  9. I have tried to export 6 framework matrices, but only 3 were exported successfully. This is the error message that is displayed in a pop up window: see screenshot. How can I fix the issue?
