Hi infinito,

you can change the weight of all (!) coded segments, that have the same weight, by following these steps:

1. Right click on the icon "standard weight" in the status bar.

2. Set a new weight.

3. MAXQDA will ask you if you want to change the weight of all segments with the old standard weight to the new weight. If you click yes, all weights are changed.

Please note that it is not possible to select a subgroup of segment to be changed.

Hope this helps, best regards on behalf of the MAXQDA team,

You don't mention how many weights you need to change. Though there is no batch method to change the weighting for a large number of coded segments, you might like to try this:

- Activate the codes and documents that you want to change. The aim is to get the correct coded segments in the Retrieved Segments window.

- In the toolbar of Retrieved Segments, click Change to table view.

- Right click on any column header, then click Select columns.

- Select the check box for Weight Score. Click OK.

- The system will display the weight for all segments in Retrieved Segments.

- The weight field is editable in Retrieved Segments table view. Just type the new weight value. Press Enter, to save the value and move to the next row.

- You should be able to modify weights quickly and efficiently for all your retrieved segments.

All the best!
