  1. Node Search Function

    I just realized that you did actually introduce a new function (the quick code link), which allows me to search the nodes much faster - thank you! Best, Tobi
  2. Dear QSR Team, The view setting currently reverts back to the pre-set standard every time you open a new source or node, which means no highlights or coding stripes are being displayed. Could you please add a feature that allows the user to customise this setting. Particularly, it would be helpful to allow 'Highlight' -> 'Coding for All Nodes' to be selected as a standard setting/preference for all sources / nodes. The same goes for 'Coding Stripes' -> 'All Nodes Coding'. It is rather frustrating that I have to select both options every time I enter a new node / source. In bigger projects this slows my work down quite considerably. Thanks and all the best, Tobi
  3. Node Search Function

    Dear QSR team, I made the below request about a year ago, but it appears you have not had a chance to implement it, so I thought I'd restate my interest in this new (straightforward) feature: Could you please add a 'node search function' to the toolbar. You already provide this feature, but I have to use a work-around to get there. At the moment, in order to search my nodes I have to use the 'query' tab and then click on 'selected items' and then select 'nodes' to get the option to search all nodes. This is rather time consuming and could probably be fixed quite easily with a 'nodes search button' at the top level. I appreciate that for some users this feature will be less essential, but my research projects are rather large (longitudinal), requiring me to develop several hundred distinct nodes/sub-nodes, which makes it hard to remember them all (and which can lead to unnecessary duplication of nodes). Please find attached screenshots of the work-around I currently using to get there. Thanks and all the best, Tobi
  4. Uncode Selection At -> Currently Coded Nodes

    Hi Kath, I'm sorry to say that this doesn't help. What I am looking for is a feature that tells me which nodes have already been applied to a given text. As per my above explanation this is not an issue if you only use 20-50 nodes but with over 200 it is rather difficult/time consuming to get this information at the moment. As I explained you can get there, which makes me think it cannot be too difficult to add a new tab to the code and uncode option which lists all those nodes that are currently applied to a selected portion of the text. Thanks and best, Tobias PS: If I right click on a selected section of text there is a greyed out option called 'Uncode Selection at Current Nodes' (the equivalent option exists in the code selection menu of course) - I wonder whether this means you are planning to o provide this exact feature in the future (and it just happens to be under review at the moment)?
  5. Program Design Adds Time to Coding Process

    You raise a very good point (especially your comments on point 1). To add to this topic, I often experience issues where highlighted text becomes un-highlighted when I have to scroll in the nodes section (top half of the screen) to find a node that is either further up or down than the current nodes displayed (I guess only users who use a large number of nodes will experience this issue). As you explain - finding and highlighting the exact text again is time-consuming and a rather frustrating process over time.
  6. Nodes Reference View Setting Issue

    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. Best, Tobias
  7. Why is 'zoom' faded out?

    Hi Andrew, Yes of course - I am particularly referring to the feature "Uncode Selection At Current Nodes" (the same goes for "Code Selection At Current Nodes" of course), which is greyed out in the "Uncode Selection" Option that can be reached by right clicking on selected text. It would also be helpful to have the "Code whole words" option available that is currently greyed out (it is listed in the Application Preferences Menu) - it certainly is a helpful feature of Nvivo for PC. Best, Tobias
  8. Thanks Kath, I just applied. It would be great if you could introduce the updates I suggested. Best, Tobias
  9. Why is 'zoom' faded out?

    Good question - there are several features that are greyed out, which I would like to use too - I suspect they are available to the testing community only.
  10. 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, Tobias

  12. Standard View Settings

    The view setting currently reverts back to the pre-set standard every time you open a new node or source (or reopen the entire project at the start of the day), which means no highlights or codes are displayed. Could you please add a feature that allows the user to customise this setting. Particularly, it would be helpful to allow 'Highlight' -> 'Coding for All Nodes' to be permanently selected for all sources / nodes. The same goes for 'Coding Stripes' -> 'Nodes Recently Coding'. It is rather frustrating that I have to select both options every time I enter a new node / source. In bigger projects this slows my work down quite considerably. I do not know whether I should post this separately but I have a connected suggestion: Please add a feature that shows all the Coding Stripes for the text currently shown on screen. It is great that you are already providing so many different options (e.g. show 'Nodes Most Coding' or 'Nodes Recently Coding') but in bigger projects these functions are not sufficient to help me determine which codes/nodes have already been applied to the text (unless I have recently coded the section or it happens to be a frequently used code/node). In other words, as I scroll down in a long document it would be great if the coding stripes on the right continued to change to what is actually relevant to the text on screen (i.e. selected for the text shown). I know there is a maximum of how many stripes can be shown at once but even if it could only display 7 current stripes that would already help a lot. Thanks and all the best, Tobias
  13. You are currently providing the following nodes feature to uncode data: Analyze -> Uncode Selection At -> Existing Nodes / Recent Nodes It would be fantastic if you could add an option to uncode: 'Currently Coded Nodes' I do not think this feature would be hard for you to add, as you are already providing the function - although in a way that is hard to reach for the user, as explained below. If I select the 'Existing Nodes' option and click on the 'With Coding' tab, Nivivo provides a list of all available codes and highlights those (in a white rather than a grey background color) that are already been used for this selection. However, I use over 200 nodes in my research and it is rather time-consuming to scroll through the entire list every time I want to check which nodes have already been used for a specific selection of words. Thus, it would be fantastic if you could either add a new tab within the 'Existing Nodes' option (that lists only those nodes that are currently used to code the selection) or add an additional list, similar to the 'Recent Nodes'. Thanks and best, Tobias
