Hello Atlasti Community,

It would be great if there were a way to create disconnected portions of text (or pictures or audio) as a single quotation. For example, if I have a PD with 20 lines of text, it would be great if I could create a single quotation with codes attached to it that consists of lines 1-5 and 18-20. I realize you could do this by simply coding them each individually, but the ability to connect them as a single quotation would help conducting rehetorical analysis on a text.

Frank:

You could try using the quotation hyperlink feature, which allows linking and navigating disconnected portions of text. It doesn't generate a single quotation per se, but it does allow you to connect pieces of text and organize them. Once they are hyperlinked you can assemble them in a Network view, filter only hyperlinked Quotations, or simply "jump" through them in the margin.

Anybody else have a better way of doing this?

Hey there Doug,

Thanks for the advice, i'll definitely give that a shot. From what you described it sounds like it will probably work just fine. Thanks again.
