When you first start out, you may have a considerable number of your recipes that you have already gathered in some other electronic formation. It might be Microsoft Word, a text file, a recipe management program, or some other desktop publishing application.
We have designed the cookbook designer to make it as easy as possible to transfer your recipes into the designer with minimal retyping required.
One trick is to take advantage of the automatic formatting of recipes by recognizing each direction step on it's own line, and each ingredient on it's own line. That might sound, kind of confusing, so let's take a look at an example below.
Consider the recipe sitting in a word document like that on the left. Watch the animation to see how copy-and-pasting the content into the designer's recipe form automatically parses and formats recipe for your cookbook.
