Load a document that you have created Quotes from, or select it in the Document Window to bring it to the foreground if it’s already loaded.
The Visualization Window
Look at the Visualization window.
The Data Window
Now look at the Data Window. You will notice that there are now four tabs in the Data window. The Database tab contains the Database tree. If you double-click a Quote in a Collection in the Database Tree, the Quote will be opened in a new tab in the Document Window, or will be brought to the front if it is already loaded.
The Selected Items tab shows the same information for Quotes have been created from the spot in the Document where the document cursor resides or from the Document’s current text selection. If you double-click an item in the Position column, the appropriate span of characters associated with the Quote selected will be highlighted in the Document. If you double-click the Item ID column, the Quote will be opened in a new tab in the Document Window, or will be brought to the front if it is already loaded.
The Keywords tab for a Document shows the Keywords that have been assigned to the Document. (This is not the same as showing the Keywords that have been assigned to Quotes from the Document.)
If you load a Quote by double-clicking it in Database Tree or on the Document Items tab, the Quote will load in a new tab in the Document Window. You will see the Quote’s text in the Document window, and the coding in the Visualization window and on the Keywords tab in the Data window.
It is sometimes useful to be able to see the context from which a Quote was taken. To do this, simply right-click the Quote in the Database Tree and select Locate Quote in Document from the menu. Transana will load the Document that is the Quote’s source, and will highlight the text of the Quote within the Document.
You should note that the Quote, when viewed in a separate tab in the Document Window, contains a copy of the text from the source Document. Editing the Quote will not alter the Document, and editing the Document will not alter the Quote. (Synchronizing editing is accomplished through the Change Propagation mechanism described in the Transana Manual.)
