Removing audio file

17.11.2015, 18:33

Hello,
I have imported an audio file that I want to remove, but I do not want to replace it with a different audio file (I just want to delete it). When I go in to properties, then audio/video linked to the document, then media file, there is only an option to click on the "..." to select files, not to delete. Does anyone know if there is a way to delete a file?

Thank you!
Jackie

Hi Jackie,

it should work to highlight the path to the file and press "Del" or "Backspace" to delete it.

After clicking on OK the link to the audio / video file should be deleted.

Best regards on behalf of the MAXQDA team,

Hi Stefan,
Unfortunately I have already tried that several times and it doesn't seem to work. Is there another way to do so?

Thank you
Jackie

Hi Jackie,

please tell us, which release of MAXQDA you are using. You can see it in the titlebar of the main window, e.g. "MAXQDA 12 (Release 12.0.2)"
We would like to check that.

Best

Hi Jackie,

thanks for the additional information. We could reproduce the issue that might occur in some cases and will try to fix it.

You can do the following to remove the audio file manually:

1. Right click on the document and choose "Export". Save the file, e.g. on your desktop.

2. Right click on the document and choose "Teamwort export" to export the coding information etc., e.g. on your desktop, too.

3. Re-import the exported document file.

4. Right click on the document and click "Teamwork import", choose the exported Teamwork file and re-import the coding information.
Check the document on correctness.

5. Delete the original document.

Best regards,
Stefan

Hi Jackie,

this issue should be solved with the update to 11.2.5, that we have published last week.
