Notes:  The QualCoder software version demonstrated was downloaded from QualCoder source code before March 2, 2023. Since then, there has been an update to the source code, and importing references and survey is now done under Files and Cases rather than under Project.  Within Help, there is a list of keyboard shortcuts.
