PDF Files

In this video you will learn how to import and code PDFs in MAXQDA 12.

Working with PDF files in MAXQDA is easy

PDF documents, like normal text documents, can be imported into a MAXQDA project and coded. Text and image segments in PDFs can be coded with the mouse. Select and create a frame around the desired segments to subsequently code them.

If a text is in the format of a scanned PDF file, Optical Character Recognition or OCR, a text recognition process, must carried out beforehand. This process makes it possible to mark and code the text, otherwise it would be possible only to mark images.
