Living Cookbook

I just purchased Living Cookbook software and haven't really had the time to play with it except for capturing web recipes.  Does anyone know if it is possible to scan a recipe directly into the recipe software, or do I have to type them in the format?

Thanks for any help you can give a technology-challenged (at this point) recipe clipper.

I don't think so. You could try asking here but as far as I am aware, it needs to be in an electronic format.

I have had some success with googling recipes and checking them before capturing.

I believe in champagne...

Thanks for the good suggestion.  I guess the capture feature is so simple that I was hoping the rest would be as well.  Just need to get in there and learn the software.

Happy New Year!                   Donna

I've got Master Cook Deluxe. Since most of the recipes that I have in printed format I've ripped from newspapers or magazines I just go back to the electronic version of the source to find them and upload from there.  I've found probably 95% of them that way...and come across some other very interesting ones during the search.
