View Memos text in coding stripe

11.04.2014, 10:38

Hi there,

Is there any way to see the first few words of a memo in the coding stripe?
I am using the mac version trial.

Thank you very much,
Best,

Francesco.

Hi Francesco,

if you mean the comment to a coded segment: it will be displayed in the tooltip on a coding stripe or coding name.

If you mean a memo on the same vertical position as a coding stripe: there is no connection between the memo and the code, but you can see the tooltip of the memo if you hover over it with the mouse.

Best regards,
Stefan

Dear Stefan,

I was thinking about the second option you mention but actually the first one also makes sense. Tooltip is useful, but sometimes it's better to be able to read it straight away. I would then probably phrase it as a feature request. Atlas.ti does it, and I think it's a very popular feature (at least they are quite proud of it). It could easily be an option in the coding stripe contextual menu.

Congrats again on the great piece of software, I am really convinced by its features and versatility!

Thanks!

Francesco.
