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 replace) just stays where it is. I tried to follow the steps described elsewhere on reimporting the classification sheet, which I did (again with no result) and I am worried that I will overwrite and possibly corrupt my database by doing this. It would be fantastic if you could help. (Could you also tell me what exactly happens when exporting and reimporting classification sheets? especially when possible not all the right boxes are ticked when reimporting the file? - if this could be a problem, how can I overcome it? Just upload an updated database from Zotero?) Many thanks, A
