Please add the ability to select regions of an image/PDF file. This is a crucial feature of the Windows version. I knew that without it NVivo could not handle handwritten documents. Today I also realized it means I cannot do a literature review in Mac NVivo, because some of the PDF articles are not machine-readable so they cannot be coded as text.

Hi amod,


This is definitely on our to-do list.


In the meantime, you might want to look at OCR tools that can convert your image-based PDFs and handwritten notes into editable text. If you Google "OCR on Mac" you should find something useful :)
