  1. Hello everyone, In Nvivo Memos feature allows you to record your ideas for your files, codes and queries. Nvivo also allows you to code your Memos. Thus, if you will need to code your ideas you may want to use Memos instead of Annotations. For further details please refer here. Regards,
  2. Kia ora! Hello! Overview: I am hoping that the other users on this forum will have some idea on the best way to export an Nvivo project to allow sequential coding. Basically after I code our data, my PI would download the .nvpx file from a shared drive, and open the project on her own mac, and review my coding and add anything I may have missed. Sounds relatively straightforward, but we have had some real issues! Details: We are using Nvivo 12, we are all on Macs, and the data we are currently coding is a combination of text and regional coding of PDF files. The problem: For some reason when I export the project, the areas that are regionally coded look fine. The areas that are text coded are no longer coded, once I export the project. Instead the text areas that were coded are listed in a memo file that Nvivo has generated and attached to the PDF. If anyone understands why it is removing the text coding and putting it into a memo, and retaining the regional coding, we would love to hear it! even better, how to prevent it from doing that when we export the project. Alternatively, if there is a better way to be doing sequential coding on a project, please let us know! I am happy to add any other relevant information that might help answer this question. It has brought us to quite the standstill, analysis-wise. Cheers, Cassie
  3. Hi all, I still struggle with the limits of annotations in NVivo. I tend to annotate as I code, as I like to note ideas related to specific parts of transcript text. But I keep finding myself in trouble with this strategy: 1. It is not possible to actually view the annotations, without going to the source or coded node. I can pull up a list of annotations, but when I click one, it takes me to the source. I find this frustrating; I would like to click on an annotation and be able to JUST see the highlighted/referenced text of the source and the full text of the annotation. Of course I do not need to see the entire source, this is why I selected a small part of it in order to annotate. 2. Relatedly, I should be able to do this for multiple annotations - i.e. select some annotations and view the content (again, referenced text in the source and the annotation itself). 3. I would like to be able to cross reference annotations, a bit link the links function used for memos. I.e. I could create a link between memo 3 and memo 5 on my list, as well as between annotation 3 and memo 2 (for example). 4. I can't print JUST the annotation text or JUST the referenced text with the annotation (this seems to be an issue people have struggle with for years, based on forum entries since 2007). The only way to print annotations is to print the source, with the 'include annotations' check box selected; the annotations then appear as footnotes. But I want to see ALL of my annotations on one page. It is content that I have generated through analysis, so I think expectation this is logical. There are ideas in these annotations, but NVivo is making it hard for me to revisit and organize those ideas. Why are none of these things possible? Am I using annotations incorrectly? I am reluctant to use memos for a similar purpose, because while the annotations may be related in various ways, they are not necessarily about a single coherent subject or theme (which I document in memos). In fact, ideally I'd like to be able to insert annotations into memos. This also seems logical but not possible in NVivo. Does anyone have advice on this front? Many thanks! --- P.s. I'm using NVivo 11.2.2 for Mac but I've struggled with this in Windows before.
  4. When I work in memos I am typically able to add about three lines and then the system hangs. I can wait about 10 minutes for the problem to resolve, otherwise I have to restart NVivo entirely. Saving the memo and/or the entire project does not help. Has anyone else experienced this problem. I have only encountered it since the most recent update. Thanks, Valerie
  5. It would be nice if the text editor window for writing memos would automatically scroll to keep the cursor on the page. As I'm typing, when I get to the bottom of the window, the cursor disappears off the bottom, rather than having the text scroll automatically to keep the cursor visible.
  6. After reading the discusion on the importance on memos in Nvivo Linkedin group I realized that there´s no way to know what text passages and/or how many are linked to a certain memo, from that memo. In the list view you can see what nodes are linked to a memo via "link to memo" and even open the memo, and also you can see what memos are linked to a node and also open the node. When reading a document or node content I can see what memos are linked to passages by "see also links" ticking the option to see those links in the "view" menu in the ribbon. But the reverse is not possible: when reading a memo there´s no way to see what passages. nodes or sources are linked to it from via "see also links". It would be useful to be able to see this information as well. Regards,
