  1. 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
  2. Hi all, I still struggle with the limits of annotations in NVivo. I tend to annotate as I code, as I like to note ideas related to specific parts of transcript text. But I keep finding myself in trouble with this strategy: 1. It is not possible to actually view the annotations, without going to the source or coded node. I can pull up a list of annotations, but when I click one, it takes me to the source. I find this frustrating; I would like to click on an annotation and be able to JUST see the highlighted/referenced text of the source and the full text of the annotation. Of course I do not need to see the entire source, this is why I selected a small part of it in order to annotate. 2. Relatedly, I should be able to do this for multiple annotations - i.e. select some annotations and view the content (again, referenced text in the source and the annotation itself). 3. I would like to be able to cross reference annotations, a bit link the links function used for memos. I.e. I could create a link between memo 3 and memo 5 on my list, as well as between annotation 3 and memo 2 (for example). 4. I can't print JUST the annotation text or JUST the referenced text with the annotation (this seems to be an issue people have struggle with for years, based on forum entries since 2007). The only way to print annotations is to print the source, with the 'include annotations' check box selected; the annotations then appear as footnotes. But I want to see ALL of my annotations on one page. It is content that I have generated through analysis, so I think expectation this is logical. There are ideas in these annotations, but NVivo is making it hard for me to revisit and organize those ideas. Why are none of these things possible? Am I using annotations incorrectly? I am reluctant to use memos for a similar purpose, because while the annotations may be related in various ways, they are not necessarily about a single coherent subject or theme (which I document in memos). In fact, ideally I'd like to be able to insert annotations into memos. This also seems logical but not possible in NVivo. Does anyone have advice on this front? Many thanks! --- P.s. I'm using NVivo 11.2.2 for Mac but I've struggled with this in Windows before.
  3. 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
  4. HI all, i'm trying to code several transcripts saved as Word documents. I find each time I code the document at an existing node, after doing so, the document loses my current place and instead returns to the top of the page, meaning I have to scroll all the way back down to where I was at each time, which is frustrating. My text is in a table, don't know if this may explain the issue. Has anyone else encountered this and is there a workaround at all? Thanks! Kate
  5. In comparative analysis having these displayed is very handy, but it really slows NVivo. Possibly unsolvable!
  6. Hi, Does anyone know of a way to display the coding stripes, when working from a node/source, vertically rather than horizontally. Working with many hundreds of codes / refs, and ones neck gets very sore tilting to the right to read the coding stripes. I have tried the detail view variations, undocking and everything else I can think of. Many thanks Mathew
  7. Dear Developer Team, 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
  8. I obviously am missing a setting somewhere. I’ve looked in the NVivo manual but can’t seem to find what I need to do. I’ve begun coding transcripts. I have a number of nodes, and most of them have at least one selection of coded text. However, I can't display the coded text. I am on the ‘reference’ tab and I believe this is where they should be displayed. When I select the text tab the thumbnail at the top confirms 9 selections, but I can’t get them to appear. What am I missing? Charlotte
