Highlight in different colours

Recommended Posts

Hi there,


I prefer to use the highlight nodes tool instead of the coding stripes. However, I would like to be able to tailor highlight colours according to each node. At the moment, I can only use yellow for all. It would be great if this could be implemented in the next version.

Hi Adam,


I could not find an easy solution for that point... maybe overlapping coding should always be coloured in grey... it is not perfect but it is something.


I like the colour stripes, but in my case, for example, I have to main tree node code families. I would like to colour one of them (actors) with one colour and another one (issues) with another colour. The idea to use multiple highlighting colour scheme came from that...


best, fabrolino

4 years on - it would be good to at least have some more options in the Highlight section - for example, being able to highlight at least 2 nodes in the text in different colours.


At the moment, the highlighting doesn't actually TELL you much - other than it has been coded - if you chose to highlight for more than one node- because you can't see where coding for one node stops / starts - unless you use in combination with coding stripes.

I have just started using Nvivo today and googled how to change the highlight colours to match the node colours.

It seems I'm out of luck with a solution judging by the other comments here. 

11 years and counting?

Actually in the latest release NVivo (Release 1) you can change the coding stripe colors and then when you click on the coding stripe it show the coded text highlighted in that color https://help-nv.qsrinternational.com/20/win/Content/coding/coding-stripes.htm?Highlight=coding stripes#Changethecolorschemeforyourcodingstripes
