I am in the process of switching over from NVivo for Windows to the Mac version. I have the latest updates for both on my PC and Mac. There are a few things which I'd like to raise with the developers...
--Would it be possible to allow nodes to be custom sorted in the Mac version? There are various sort options, but oddly this isn't among them
--I used Framework matrices extensively in the Win version. It is disappointing that this feature is not available on Mac. I see there was a forum query about this, and the QSR respondent agreed to feed the request back to the developers. But this was in Nov 2014 and nothing seems to have been done.
--Cross platform functionality is very poor. I would have thought this would be a priority area given that NVivo for Windows is so heavily used. In team or collaborative contexts, it is likely that Mac users will always be a minority. File conversion is really cumbersome and non-intuitive. For example, an NVivo for Windows project can only be converted to a Mac version on a Windows machine. This means that I will have to basically go through all my old NVivo for Windows projects and convert them individually on my PC before I can access them on the Mac. And it means that in teams where everyone else is on Windows, working on a Mac becomes very isolating.
