Exporting/Importing Code Systems

10.03.2021, 16:08

I'm posting about an issue I'm having exporting and importing code systems between projects. When I export a code system using the MAXQDA format and import it into a new project, the codes are imported without their hierarchical structure (i.e. all the codes and subcodes show up on the top-level). But when I export the code system using the REFI-QDA format and import that in a new project, the code system shows up as expected, with the hierarchical structure. This alternative approach is fine for now, but I wanted to post a question here to see if I'm doing something wrong or have stumbled into a bug.

Additional context: I'm doing this on MAXQDA 2020 on macOS. I previously tried doing this on MAXQDA 2020 on Windows 10 and the importing of the code system using the MAXQDA 2020 format worked properly.

Version: MAXQDA 2020
System: Mac OS X 11.0 (Big Sur)
