Hello everyone, In Nvivo you can search for any word in your data. However, please note that Nvivo has a feature called "stop words" which lists the common words that will not be taken into consideration by queries. Therefore, let's say if you would like to search for the occurrences of "political will", first you need to remove the word "will" from the stop words list. To do this: 1) Open your project 2) Choose File>Project Properties>General>Stop Words 3) Locate the word "will" in the list, remove it and choose OK Now your text search query for "political will" will be able to locate the instances of "will". I hope this helps you all, Regards,
Version: Nvivo 11.4.3 (2084) System: OSX Yosemite 10.10.5 I'm a new Nvivo user and I am having a problem querying specific phrases in Nvivo for Mac. When I use double quotes around a phrase, it does not limit the search to that phrase. I have cleared all Stop Words, restarted Nvivo, and restarted my computer. The query still picks up isolated words inside the quotes separately from the others. In the examples, "quality of life" is a key node. Not being able to search for it directly is a huge drawback. Is there any way to solve this problem? I have tried ~ and it's gotten me close, but Boolean searching using quotes seems to me to be an elementary function, and I'm surprised it isn't working. Am I doing something wrong? Thanks! John
Hi Does anyone know why this happens? I tried to add stop words to my stop words list and get an error message to contact QSR support if the problem persists. Working environment: NVivo for Windows inside Parallels session on a Mac - windows 7.1, Macos Yosemite 10.10.1 I have noticed that the size of my NVP file went up dramatically from around 100Mb to 1.4 Gb last night - but I did not add any video or other large memory chewing objects. Is my nvp file possibly corrupt? Regards, Robert
Hello, I am unable to add certain words to the "Stop Word" list for Japanese word queries. What is especially troubling is punctuation marks like commas, the Japanese full stop (period) which looks like a tiny circle , brackets and so on. When I try to add, for example, a comma I get an error saying it is invalid. I am sure you are already aware that Japanese is particular in that there are no "spaces" between "words" making it difficult for non-native Japanese developed applications to distinguish between words and particles - which results in less quality word query results than in, say, English. However, not being able to add punctuation marks in the stop list has the word tree filled with linkages such things as only commas, full stops, brackets and so on. So, this needs to be worked on first. In native Japanese applications, distinguishing between "words" has been successful mainly through the application's use of the Japanese Input Method. Even the Japanese version of Word has a grammar checker that is able to work with Japanese. And more sophisticated software is able to even act like a "copy editor" to point out better Japanese usage using Japanese dictionaries as that used specifically for journalists. Anyway, for a start, it would be good to at least have punctuation being able to be added to stop word list - even better be added as default. If there is a way around this, could you let me know? If not, could this be added to the suggestion list for improvement? Looking forward to hearing from you. Cheers! Darren McDonald Japan
