    In-Vivo codes to highlight direct quotations

    Hi everyone.

    I am doing a journalism studies project for which direct quotations from participants will be quite important. So I code my quotations - and then I put quotation marks around some quotes and save them as in-vivo codes to remember them as strong direct quotations.
    Will I be able to retrieve them, or will the in-vivo codes only show the first 40 characters from the quotations when I do the output?
    If so, is there another way to keep track of strong direct quotations?

    Thanks!
    Marenet

    Dear Marenet,

    when you create output, you can of course select the full content of the quotations. The first 30 (version 7) / 60 characters (version 8) are only the quotation name. The name by the way can be changed. That ATLAS.ti uses the first characters of a quote as default name is only a way to automatically generate a name.

    However, rather than generating a code each for each strong quote, I recommend to crate a code "strong direct quotations" where you collect all of these good quotes. This does not clutter up your code system and you can generate one report that contains all of these strong quotes.

    kind regards, Susanne
