In comparative analysis having these displayed is very handy, but it really slows NVivo.

Possibly unsolvable!

Hey Matthew,

 

There are some ways to optimize performance - might want to run through the check-list and see if any of the hints help.

 

On a side note, I'd love to hear more about you use coding stripes in comparative analysis - what are you looking for and how do coding stripes help you get there?

 

I'll check with the dev team about the lag - nothing is unsolvable! Easy for me to say since I'm not developer :)

OK - looks like you've already tried the optimization tricks!

 

Hopefully the dev team can look at your project and see what's causing the lag.

 

Cheers,

Kath

Hi Kath,

Doing an emergent largely constructivist GT PhD involving many perspectives/layers both emic and etic...as the conceptual layers accrete I find the coding stripes a good way to keep track of newer layers/dimensions/categories etc. eg - with a refocused code of a belatedly emergent conceptual category. Or if splitting/dissecting an overly complex node, just checking I have covered original linkages when reshuffling. Useful for a project that's been iterative for a few years!

 

Kind regards

Mathew
