Announcing the new Datavyu v1.3.6 with enhanced features and transcription support!

Can anyone tell me how I can assign a new code for a cell in an existing column with another/other cell(s) in it that have different codes? I don't want to change the code that's in place for any existing cell, just add a new one in the same column.

Cells within the same column share the same number of codes. You can add new codes to a column at any point using the Code Editor. See below for step-by-step instructions:

You can just leave that new code blank in other cells where it doesn't apply.

Thanks GladysChan but maybe I didn't articulate my question well. When I add a code in the code editor, it then shows up for every cell in that column. I wish to have different cells in the same column have different codes. For example in a column titled say "locomotion" I may want to create one cell with the code "step" and another called "pedaling". How do I do this?

All cells belonging to the same column must have the same codes, by design. What I think you may be going after though, is what goes into those codes. If you have a column named "locomotion", you can set a code to be "typeOfLocomotion", for example.

On the spreadsheet, <typeoflocomotion> will show up in every cell within that column. You simply click on <typeoflocomotion> to code that cell. Once highlighted, you can put in anything, such as "step" and "pedal". We recommend shorthands ("s" for step, "p" for pedal) to minimize on typos and other human errors.

Let me know if that helps, or we're still misunderstanding.
