I have earlier used NVivo9 in coding my Word documents. Now I have been coding DV recordings. This seem to be very time-consuming. I wonder if I can use NVivo, as I cannot code "drag and drop" at all, and when I open the code selection I have to choose code selection at existing nodes, as there are limited number of previous nodes. The window seems to be fixed, so every time I have to extend the Name to see the entire description of the node. I don't need the Nickname column, so I wonder if it is possible to modify the window "Select project items", ie. column width… so I wouldn't be ought to do the extension every time again???
Although this tutorial deals with audio, the concepts are exactly the same as video.
However, that tutorial does not deal with customising your workspace so I have posted another to deal specifically with that question and your posting and this time I’ve used video as the example as most people are visual learners when it comes to software so hopefully, this will address your question:
many thanks for your prompt reply and the guidance with the tutorials. They really will help me! Drag and drop coding a transcipt segment helps me a lot, though I have transcribed one person's utterance to one segment, where there might be meaning units for several different nodes, but these longer utterances are not very many 🙂 TG…
I will try modifying the workspace as you advised in the other tutorial, I do appreciated that!
