This is exactly what I use ConnectedText for. I can’t link right now (writing on my Palm) but if you search for CT here you will find my case study.

I have no idea if this will help, but it is worth checking out.  The R project is devoted to the development of a wide range of FREE statistical and analysis tools.  Originally based on the S+ system, it continues to grow with new applications being continuously added.

Hi Charles,

Thanks for the reply.
I think that for now, I do need the more robust capabilities of a QDA application.
Luckily I still have my version of AtlasTI 6 that runs well. I’ll use it for now and will explore Dr. Andus’ suggestions for using ConnectedText http://www.outlinersoftware.com/topics/viewt/3799/40

Dr. Andus,

Thanks very much for your reply. I looked at your posting about ConnectedText http://www.outlinersoftware.com/topics/viewt/3799/40
I’m wondering if you might possibly make a short video outlining the process, or perhaps illustrate the instructions you provided with screenshots?
I’m sure many of us would greatly benefit from that.

What you did with CT sounds exactly what I should be doing too. Now the trick is to see if I can understand how to replicate it.
One problems- I really do not like the idea of using markup language - It just doesn’t seem to make sense to me to use that (I simply have too many things to try to learn and remember- why not just click on toolbar icons?)

I’m very curious- do you think I should begin using ConnectedText rather than AtlasTI? I have about 18 documents each about 100 pages, each one my fieldnotes for different research trips.
Thank you!

Carrot
