Sense QDA Overview

Sense's Annotation functionality enables lines and text snippets to be marked and coded for subsequent visualization using the QDA Plugin:

  • Regular Expression Words and Phrases Search of documentation to retrieve text snippets.
  • Coding is by tagging (linking) retrieved text snippets to Categories maintained within an editable Metadata Table.
  • Whole lines may be coded.
  • Coding involves no Markup Language or Special Symbols.
  • Text snippets are in-line highlighted for visual indentification.
  • Forward and Backward Navigation of Categorized documentation.
  • Metadata may be transfered between documents by Text File.

Sense imposes no pre-determined methodology on the use of metadata categories allowing Sense's ViewPoints to be freely used to manually group coded documentation into a Category based tree-hierarchy for more focused QDA review.

ViewPoint's cloning allows material duplication at different levels of its category tree for lines and document branches with overlapping codes.

QDA Plugin functionality may be enabled for any normal (Default Editor Style) Sense document accepting material from both the main document and ViewPoints.
