  1. I mistakingly highlighted the text I selected for coding but clicked to code source button rather than code selection. Is there any way to undo this; does NVivo save my selections too? Can you uncode and will it revert to just the text the selection? Any help with this would be of great help. MB.
  2. Hello all. I wonder if you can help. I am trying to link sources to case classifications. Under case classifications I have a list of the interviewees with details about their gender and background. I have a number of sources - interviews (sometimes 2 files), notes, etc. The sources are coded but I wanted to run analysis seeing how noding changes depending on gender and background. To do that I'll need to link the sources to each case. How would I do that in such a way I could run an appropriate query? Thanks.
  3. Hello! I am working on an NVivo server project and my colleagues made copies of sources inside the same project and then did additional coding in both the old and new sources. All of the coding is valid, I just want all the coding in one internal. Possible?
  4. Is there any easy way to turn off the sources and references columns while coding an interview in NVIVO 11 for Windows? (see attached screenshot) They take up valuable screen space, making it more difficult to see the nodes that I am working with. If there is any easy way to turn these off while coding, it would be really helpful. Thanks for any suggestions.
  5. Hello, Newbie here, I searched the forums for answers but found nothing close... I hope my question is not outlandish or stupid. I'm working on a corpus of regulatory documents (performance contracts for government agencies) where each document (mostly PDFs) has dates, a government jurisdiction, belongs to a given agency (the cases), has been disclosed or not, etc. I imported a classification of the documents from an Excel spreadsheet, that gives me the relevant information on each contract. But the corresponding sources were already in the project, and so my new source classification points to empty documents, while the existing sources are not linked to the imported classification. Moreover, I am editing some of the sources (editing out foreign content), and since they are PDF the editing implies that I have to re-import the source. Cut-and-paste the content will not work. Is there a way to change the source each classification item "points" to, preserving its attributes, or do I have to re-encode all the attributes for existing or newly imported sources? Thanks, Jan
  6. I imported pdfs/webpages using NCapture and find I have duplicates that came through Endnote. The Endnote data does not contain any pdf/s. Is there a way to put the PDFs into the source item that corresponds? As is, it looks to be two references but it is one. Thanks for the help.
  7. Hi, it is not a specific NVIVO issue but still. When you do lit review, you find a first interesting article or a few of them and put them in NVIVO (I use Zotero) and start thoroughly reading them and coding. Maybe do some analysis as well. But then you find new articles that you have to add, but do not want to destroy existing work in NVIVO project. So how do you do it? How do you remove duplicates-problem. Do you re-run queries, etc. What are the best tactics? (where can I read about that) Thanks. Mitja
  8. Nvivo is rather new for me. For a while I'm having trouble with comparing coding between different sources (example: interview A coming from source 1, interview B coming from source 2 in interviewer X). I wonder if it's even possible in Nvivo? The main goal is to compare the coding of the nodes for similarity. The nodes are the same for both sources. I tried cluster analysis. This doesn't seem to do the trick (too many cases). Matrix coding doesn't do the trick either. Coding comparison seems ideal, but that's only used for different users. The cases I will use, are being filtered out by using sets. My interviewer X is called interviewer X in source 1 and in source 2, but not in general. So there is no common ground for an interviewer name or case name. I think, this might be the problem. Can I fix this? Are there other solutions?
  9. Hello, I am using NVivo for a literature review and have imported 47 PDF sources and coded them according to emerging themes. I would like to generate a matrix that shows me all the sources and the nodes they are coded at. I can do this manually by going to each node and noting the sources on an excel spreadsheet, but I am thinking there must be a way I can generate this in NVivo, given all the data is there. Any help appreciated! Caroline
  10. I realise that you can do this via the 'print' option - but why not just have it as an export option? To do it via print - it means having a PDF printer installed. Would be much easier just to have as an export option. Also - I would like to be able to do this in a batch option. I don't want to have to go to each source individually - I would prefer to be able to tick an option that says something like 'export all sources with coding stripes' and just have Nvivo automatically save with an auto-generated name (e.g. [name][coding stripes][date])
