Coding text passages in the “Retrieved Segments” window

As soon as text segments are displayed in the “Retrieved Segments” window, you can select any part of these segments and drag and drop them onto a code in the “Code System”. MAXQDA then generates a coded segment of the selected text section and assigns it the selected code.
