Working with NVivo 12

You can transfer NVivo projects between NVivo 12 Windows and NVivo Mac. Projects will have different file formats, so before converting any projects we recommend you back-up your project and understand the cross platform limitations and issues.

Please note, to work with a project in this way, you must be using the new version of NVivo for Mac with NVivo 12 (Windows), and not a combination of new and old NVivo releases. For example, users can’t work with a project in this way using the first release of NVivo for Mac and NVivo 12 for Windows.
