Firstly thank you for creating this awesome app. I come from a design background and I’m using it for my PhD thesis. It is a relief to find a piece of beautifully designed software!
I’m not sure if the functionality I’m looking for exists somewhere already. I’m using Tropy to analyse the structure of websites for my thesis. It works really well, because it allows me to focus in on a certain part of a website design and then write a note about that section.
I’ve come across a couple of problems with my process:
Exporting to PDF is such a great feature, because I will be exporting the images/notes from Tropy to then code within Nvivo. Nvivo can’t handle the amount of imagery I will be analysing and the PDF feature compresses. However, when I export, the note in the PDF is cut off. Is there a character limit with notes? The notes are potentially going to be quite long, but it would be awesome if I could do everything in Tropy. The other option is doing everything in Word, which will make the process more laborious, as I will also have an image database still in Tropy.
The process of analysis means I am attaching notes to particular selections of the website design. When I export the PDF, the notes are no longer attached to the selection. Is there a way to export the PDF so it spits out notes attached to the selection / image crop I have used?
