Nodes Reference View Setting Issue

Recommended Posts

Dear Developer Team,


I have just posted the below in the suggestions box, but since I don't seem to get replies to my posts there, I thought I would add my comments here as well.


I have just updated to the new Nvivo 10.2 and was shocked to find that you have changed the way you display the standard Reference View Setting inside of Nodes. The new way of displaying takes up way too much space on screen! Yes, it highlights the source and the number/percentage of appearances, but I believe the way this was done before was much more efficient. I have now got to scroll twice as much and it is much less convenient to compare sources. What you have done may work well for those who use the same node many times in the same source but for bigger projects this is just a nightmare.


Can you please let the user choose their preferred view setting (i.e. add an option to display the Reference View of Nodes in this new style or the old style)?

In the meantime can you please advise me where I can download the former version of Nvivo. I replaced mine with the update, so I cannot go back now. Considering how much time I spend using Nvivo, I would prefer to use the former version until this issue has been solved.


Thanks and best,

Hi Tobias


Thanks for your feedback on the node reference view display.


We made the change to improve the appearance and readability of the text when in that view. We faced some technical limitations to get it exactly how we wanted to. However, we would like to improve on this in upcoming releases and give users the option to switch between different view types.


I'm sorry to hear that you find the latest implementation unworkable for your needs. Please send an email to our support staff and they will be able to supply you with the previous version - it is not available for download online.

I'd also like to draw your attention to this announcement and see if it is something you would be interested in. http://www.qsrinternational.com/news_whats-new_detail.aspx?view=819

Hi Jason,


Thanks for getting back to me - that's great! I will send a separate e-mail.

Yes, I have applied to become a tester - Kath McNiff had made the same suggestion.


It would be great to have the option to choose view settings in the future.
