Nvivo 12 deleting attribute - How?

Recommended Posts

Sorry to ask a basic question but I am new to Nvivo 12.  I have added an attribute to the classification table that I now want to delete but can't find a way to do this. I looked on help section in Nvivo and it says this,, below,  but when I go on the Home tab and then properties no Values tab appears! Can anyone let me know what I'm doing wrong please?

  1. In List View, select the attribute—click the show icon to see the attributes for a classification.
  2. On the Home tab, in the Item group, click the Properties image.
  3. Click the Values tab.
  4. Select the attribute value you want to delete and then click the Remove button.
  5. Click OK.

Here is an alternate method you can follow:

1. Click Case Classification or File Classification on the left navigation pane in your project.

2. Expand the desired classification by clicking on + sign on the classification displaying on right pane.

3. Right click on an attribute and click Delete to delete the attribute. If you want to delete an attribute value, click Attribute Properties instead.

4. On Attribute Properties window, go to Values tab.

5. Click in front of the value you want to delete. This will highlight the value row.

6. Click Remove and then click Ok.

I hope this helps.

Kind Regards,
