Next month QSR International will be updating NVivo 9 to work with PDF documents. When the user imports a PDF document into NVivo, this will allow them to view it in the same format as Adobe Acrobat.
I am very excited about this update. I have worked with many clients who are using PDF's. I have also used them in my own research, especially for conducting literature reviews in NVivo.
It has been difficult to convert the PDF's into Word. I have spent many hours trying to duplicate some of the formatting in Word and NVivo to make the documents codable.
I hope this update will make using PDF's more accessible.
