The Excerpts Workspace allows you to search for specific words/phrases across all of your text-based excerpts. Dedoose will filter and present you only the excerpts where that word/phrase is present. To search for specific words/phrases across all your excerpts:
- Locate the search bar at the top of the excerpt database (reference the example below using the word "love")
- Type in the word/phrase you want to locate within your documents
- Select enter on your keyboard or click the magnifying glass within the search bar
After doing so, Dedoose will present only the excerpts that contain the word/phrase.
This is a great tool for isolating specific concepts that may be in your data, or when you are looking for a specific example. You can select any of the excerpts to view the excerpt and continue coding, or you can create a data set with those specific excerpts.
