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
I apologize if this is a basic problem, but I'm having some issues with putting the content of my .pdf files into nodes. The pdf file is from a scanned document that I can't change into another format. I was unable to use the "text" option to highlight text, but could use the "region" part (albeit not over page breaks). When I highlight a portion, I can put it into a node through either drag and drop or creating a new node. However, when I highlight a different section of the same file, I seem to be unable to put it in an already existing node that already has text in it to have two highlighted sections for this node. Instead, the original section of the .pdf file is deleted, so I only have the new section of text. How can I ensure that both highlighted portions are included in the node? On what I imagine is an unrelated issue, I see that sometimes I have "15" under references for one section of text and I can't do "pdf selection" to highlight the text. Can anyone provide some advice? I'd appreciate it. Thank you in advance.
