(Mis)using Discourse Network Analyzer for manual coding

For my PhD project, I want to use Supervised Machine Learning (SML) to replicate my manual coding efforts onto a larger data set. That means, however, that I need to put in some manual coding effort before the SML algorithms can do their magic! I used a number of programs already to analyse texts by hand, and they all come with their up- and downsides. A while ago I already coded articles in order to train an SML algorithm and did so having a PDF with the text opened on the left side of my screen and an Excel file with my category system on the right side.
