Hello. Since NCapture is not available or the Mac version of Nvivo, I copy-pasted some blog posts into Word files and imported these into Nvivo. For some of the documents, I had saved them as PDFs. I've been practicing coding, and while I have had no trouble selecting lines of text to code, after coding a few documents, I turned on coding stripes, and it appears that in the PDFs, the whole document has been coded as each individual code used in that document rather than just selected areas. In other words, when I click a coding stripe named "purpose statement," instead of the sentence or line that I've coded being indicated with highlighting, the entire document from start to finish appears to be coded as that node name. Likewise, the coding density indicator shows that the entire document has been coded (even when I only selected a few lines here and there). EDITED to add: I figured out what I did wrong by going to the Windows forum. I had clicked on 'New Node' or 'Existing Nodes' under 'Code Source at' instead of 'Code Selection at' in the 'Analyze' tab of the ribbon. I think I did this because the "Code Source at" icons are highlighted yellow and the "Code Selection at" buttons are light blue color and blend in more with the Nvivo interface. UGH. I've coded ten documents this morning...and now I have to uncode them. I'll leave this post here in case someone else does something this stupid. Is there any way to change the location or colors of some Nvivo features (like "code select at")?
