Tag Cloud

22.02.2016, 10:20

I would really like to be able to use Tag Cloud, but for a set of coded semgents rather than for a set of documents. This doesn't appear to be an option, and I suspect it's not possible. Is that correct, and if so, I just wonder if there are any workarounds?

Hi Debbie,

You are right: there is no built in feature for Tag Clouds that only include the words from selected coded segments.

If you have MAXQDAplus with MAXDictio you can use the "MAXDictio > Word frequency" tool to create a word frequency list for the coded segments only:
1. Activate documents and codes => MAXQDA will list coded segments in the "Retrieved Segments" window
2. Start the MAXDictio function

Anyhow, there is workaround:
1. Activate documents and codes to list coded segments in the "Retrieved Segments" window
2. Copy all retrieved segments into the clipboard
3. Create a new document by using "Documents > Create new document"
4. Paste the retrieved segments into the document and close the Edit mode
=> Now you have a new document on which you can start the "Tag Cloud" function

Best regards,
