Hello, I am coding a series of PDFs using the selection tool. I recently had to adjust some coding so I needed to uncode a section and then re-code it. Unfortunately, a highlight box remains around the coded section even when there are no codes left when any sort of highlight is selected. It goes away, however, when I turn off highlighting totally. I've had to do this innumerable times in the past and the highlighting has always disappeared. This seems only to persist for some coding and not other parts. I've attached a screenshot of the issue showing the highlighting persisting despite the absence of all coding strips. I've tried to troubleshoot through importing my project to a fresh file or tsting on multiple documents but the problem persists. As we plan to eventually share the highlighted PDFs publicly it would be good to not have any erroneous highlighting leftover after changes.
The view setting currently reverts back to the pre-set standard every time you open a new node or source (or reopen the entire project at the start of the day), which means no highlights or codes are displayed. Could you please add a feature that allows the user to customise this setting. Particularly, it would be helpful to allow 'Highlight' -> 'Coding for All Nodes' to be permanently selected for all sources / nodes. The same goes for 'Coding Stripes' -> 'Nodes Recently Coding'. It is rather frustrating that I have to select both options every time I enter a new node / source. In bigger projects this slows my work down quite considerably. I do not know whether I should post this separately but I have a connected suggestion: Please add a feature that shows all the Coding Stripes for the text currently shown on screen. It is great that you are already providing so many different options (e.g. show 'Nodes Most Coding' or 'Nodes Recently Coding') but in bigger projects these functions are not sufficient to help me determine which codes/nodes have already been applied to the text (unless I have recently coded the section or it happens to be a frequently used code/node). In other words, as I scroll down in a long document it would be great if the coding stripes on the right continued to change to what is actually relevant to the text on screen (i.e. selected for the text shown). I know there is a maximum of how many stripes can be shown at once but even if it could only display 7 current stripes that would already help a lot. Thanks and all the best, Tobias
miurbanski posted a topic in NVivo 10 for Windows and NVivo 9 for WindowsHello, Is there a way to highlight key words when using broad context coding? My nodes are set up to code in broad context because I need to capture all information in a dataset cell. (Anything less and I run the risk of duplication if the theme word is mentioned more than once - I need each cell to only be counted once for a particular theme). I used numerous text search and coding queries to capture the information I need. Now, I'd like to skim through the references to uncode what isn't relevant. To make this process easier (it's a big project!), I tried to display highlights and coding stripes, but because I used broad context spreading, this didn't help. I was hoping that I could use Find/Replace as a work-around ("find all" and then "replace all" with a different format such as bold) but I realized that NVivo only let's me Find terms when looking in the reference section, but does not let me replace with a new format. Is there something I'm missing that will allow me to view the key words that I used to create my queries, or is there another workaround I can try? I realize I can use my work-around if I export to Excel or Word, but this would not be very efficient for uncoding in real-time. Thanks, Monika
