Mac Version of NVivo - Challenges

Mac Version of NVivo - Challenges

  • The Mac version of NVivo is not as fully functional as the Windows version.
  • Moving between Mac and Windows with NVivo often causes technical challengess – if at all possible, DON’T try to work across platforms.
  • We do not offer workshops/recordings on the Mac version due to having no Mac access to do so. Differences in interface, functionality, and features between the Mac and Windows version of NVivo may make it challenging to follow along with the Windows workshop if you are using a Mac. If you are a current GSU faculty, staff, or students and need targeted training for the Mac version of NVivo after attending the NVivo workshops or watching the NVivo recorded workshops, please contact Dr. Mandy.
