This is part of a series of posts on basic text coding in NVivo 10.
In NVivo, data are coded using ‘nodes’, which can be themes, people, places or any other categories with which you would like to label portions of data. You can code any piece of data with as many nodes as you like. View your nodes by clicking on Nodes in the bottom left navigation pane.
You can save your nodes straight into the Nodes folder, and/or create sub-folders (it’s usually best to save thematic nodes in the Nodes folder and create sub-folders for any classifying nodes, such as people and countries).
To create a new folder, click on the folder you wish to place it in and then select Folder on the Create ribbon, OR right-click and choose New Folder.
