  1. I am working on a project where I periodically import PDFs to analyze, and when I do they automatically have a few coded references. I am having a hard time tracking them down and uncoding them. How do I uncode these and how do I prevent this automatic random coding in the future?
  2. Hi I have a pdf open on mac nvivo 12 which I requested it start scanning for recognisable text. However yesterday the loading bar got stuck on halfway quite quickly. I left it for hours thinking it might be because the document is large yet it still did not budge. Tt did the same thing today when I tried again and the loading bar is just stuck half way. Has anyone got any ideas to fix this? Thank you!
  3. I only recently managed to get acquainted with NVivo. My literature review praxis has thus evolved: As I read through the article, I add the needed quotations to my Nodes (I’ve created, also hear, some thematic Nodes, in reference to the main notions I’m going to use in my research). In this regard, I would have a question. Perhaps some of you can help me. As said, I’m adding all the more interesting references encountered in my readings in my Nodes. So, e.g., I have a node titled ‘Conversion’ where I add all the most interesting quotations from various authors. By opening the Nod
  4. Dear, I have 100 pdf articles in NVIVO's internal folder. How do I extract the Methodology chapter from each pdf and create a corresponding node? It would be a similar process of extracting the abstract, to then use the Query tools.

  6. Hello, I am currently using NVivo to conduct a structured literature analysis based on bibliographic and pdf data that I imported from Zotero. It is all going very well so far and I am in the process of coding each pdf to allow a structured review. However, I was trying to reimport pdfs and basically replace a reference's attachment (in one instance I wanted to reload a converted pdf from PowerPoint and in another instance, I wanted to rotate the pdf file) - and it doesn't work. Every time when I reimport it a completely new, unreferenced item is uploaded and the old item (which I want to
  7. Hello, I have two questions in this post actually,but first background. I have 3 weeks of data which I took off of Twitter. I did a search for a particular hashtag and then collected on a week to week basis all the tweets that included that hashtag. I realized after the fact that I cannot collect these tweets as anything but a PDF file because they are not from the past 2 weeks. I have started going through the tweets one by one and copy and pasting data from the PDF into an excel to make it look like a dataset file taken from twitter. My questions are as follows: 1) is there
  8. Apologies if this is really simplistic or has been asked before... When working with PDF journal articles I can't figure out how to code across 2 pages, i.e. when you highlight a sentence at the end of one page and the sentence continues over the page, how do you highlight so that you code that sentence but without the header/page number that is usually at the top of a PDF being included in the middle (see screenshot for example). I tried uncoding but that splits the reference in two. Sorry- feel like there's a really obvious answer I am missing. Thanks!
  9. Hi Team, I have many references with both endnote bibliographic data and associated .pdfs. I have been trying to import both together through the Data/FromOtherSources/Endnote wizard, and I think I am following the instructions/set up correctly from here: http://help-nv11.qsrinternational.com/desktop/procedures/exchange_data_between_nvivo_and_reference_management_tools.htm?rhsearch=endnote&rhsyns=%20#Understand_how_files_associated_with_references_are_handled and here: http://help-nv11.qsrinternational.com/desktop/concepts/about_document_and_pdf_sources.htm. I have also checked the
  10. When I'm reading my pdf sources and coding them, the highlight color is not the same as the color for the node I've applied. They all come out yellow even though I have a coding scheme using 6 different colors. How do I make the highlighting match? If Nvivo can't do that, is it possible for nvivo to launch and external pdf editor and then reflect the changes upon save? I use the color aspect of nodes extensively but need the pdf highlighting to reflect that. Thanks!
  11. It appears that I have a corrupt pdf document in my NVivo project, which I cannot open or delete. When I try to delete the pdf I receive an error message (see attached - 'error report 1'), and when I try to open the pdf, NVivo crashes. This is a problem because one of our team has put significant time into coding an interview transcript in the project, but I am not able merge her work into another project (I get another error - see 'error report 2') which I suspect is because of the problematic pdf. Any tips about what I can do about this would be greatly appreciated!
  12. Hello, I am importing 138 papers in a lit review and approximately 20 of them is not imported. It says "import error code 4". Funny enough at least one file I could add when I imported it by itself - but not the second file I tried it on. What´s error 4? How to resolve the issue? /Markus
  13. A project my team and I are working on requires that we select large areas of text in PDF files to create case nodes. Unfortunately, we have been unable to figure out if there is a way to create an "insertion point" into the PDF files imported into NVivo, so that we can use the shift & click trick to select the text the way you can with word documents. Instead, we have had to select the text manually (which takes a really long time given NVivo's speed of processing and is prone to error). We've tried instead converting to Word files but have found that this conversion rearranges the for
  14. Using either the “Show Annotations” box or the Find bar (Command-F), I can have the pdf viewer jump to a desired page. However, as soon as I try to scroll within that page, the viewer reverts to the page I had been viewing. Stated differently, the only way I can get to a page to work with it is to scroll all the way there. This is tremendously inconvenient. Am I missing something?
  15. I am currently using NVivo for my dissertation research. I have a relatively large set of pdf documents (406, resulting in more than 3 GB Nvivo project file) stored as Internals. I search for a particular word and get back around 19200 references in 398 of the documents. When I click on the Word tree tab, NVivo works for about 20 minutes, and when it is available, the word tree is in fact just a blank canvas. What could possibly be wrong? There is no difference whether I do it on the pdf sources or on the respective case nodes. Perhaps there is a limit on the volume of data that can be process
  16. I am using NVivo for Windows with Parallels Desktop on Mac. I have just started a new project in NVivo for Windows because the Mac-Version is still limited in functions and because of the possibility to export the project later on from Windows to Mac - and I definitely prefer to work only on the Mac-Version in the future as soon as there are more functionalities available in NVivo for Mac. In order to test how it would work to export a project from Windows to Mac, I copied the project (File - Manage - Copy Project) and converted it to a Mac project. Everything appeared to work fine, but I
  17. 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 l
  18. Hello, I have both the original digital recording and the typed-up transcript of the recording as a PDF format. Both are separate files. What I am wanting to do is create a link between the two files. This is not for analysis, just for housekeeping. Is this possible? If so, could you please provide me with some guidance? Cheers! Darren
  19. Hello, When using NCapture, I understand that NVivo keeps a record of the captured webpage URL and date accessed in the attributes. I was wondering, however, if it is possible to have the URL and date/time accessed actually printed in the PDF that the webpage is created into. The reason for asking this is that some of the webpages I capture are used in papers that I write. When writing up a paper I must include in the citation the URL and date accessed. At the moment, this information is propriety to NVivo software. I want to also be able to export the webpage (as a PDF) with t
  20. Hello, I had made this request in a FaceBook post and received a response from QSR staff. However, I feel this is the proper place place to post my request and so will do so again. On the QSR website, there are "Getting Started" guides for NVivo, but what is really needed is a complete downloadable PDF reference guide to using the software. It was only recently when someone, more proficient than I am presently am, showed me some features of NVivo that I knew they they existed! These features were not mentioned, or only very briefly introduced in the Getting Started guide, yet were
  21. Hi Please could you add auto coding from PDF bookmarks? This would be very useful when importing large numbers of PDFs, as the authors will often have added section headers as bookmarks - section headers are often a good way to structure documents. The coding could just be the bookmark itself in the relevant location (no text content) - or possibly an option could be to include the first 50 words following the bookmark in the document. Many thanks
  22. A colleague and I are coding assignments from participants that include textboxes. The files are Word documents that contain inserted pictures and textboxes to explain the photographs. We can not highlight, click and drag this text to nodes. Does anyone have a solution to this issue? We have fingers crossed that we do not have to covert all documents to pdf files- help! Thank you. anne
  23. Hi everyone: Though there are other topics about Nvivo problems in handling pdf files I preferred to open a new one because this implies a specific problem. The issue is that Nvivo doesn´t allways code the passage that I select, but sometimes ignore some of the highlighted words and also code words outside the highlighted passage. All my attempts to correct this mistakes were unsuccessful. I tried to code only the ignored words, and also to code a larger passage and later to uncode the surplus words. But it seems like Nvivo reads the words in a different sequence that the one one reads. I leav
