Posting recipes - a plea for help

MEANCHEF's picture

I know all of you are having fun with double spacing and bullets next to the ingredients, but it wreaks havoc trying to import recipes into Mastercook.


If you can refrain yourselves I (and I am sure others) will be appreciative.

MC, I'm finding it a real b u g g e r to post recipes without the bullets.  I copy a recipe from mastercook into this little box and I've got double spacing everywhere, takes forever but I know what you mean.  If you've got a better suggestion for doing it without the double spacing I'll listen.

Well, you could have given me a bit more but I'll bite-did you have to do any changing?  When I posted the chili recipes the other day every one of them had the double spacing.  Not trying to be difficult here.  How'd you do the picture by your name, share this little secret with me and I'll break down and do the editing.

I went to to Mastercook, acted like I was going to e-mail the recipe to myself, and copied and pasted from the MS Outlook window that opened up.


Sorry Mean; haven't tried to import anything from this new format yet.

Not so fast Kontakte66-I"ll follow those suggestions as soon as you tell us who you are!  You mean I have to e-mail the recipe to myself first?  When I go to the e-mail option on mc it just e-mails, I don't see anything else but the recipe name.

You caught the post in mid-edit. I know nothing about computers, but on mine(I use Windows), in Mastercook, if you click to e-mail the recipe, an Outlook Explorer windows opens with the recipe formatted properly. That is what I copy and paste.

Well as I said I gave it a try in the sandbox and it posted perfectly.

Well Kontakte 66, out of curiosity I went into mastercook and chose a recipe to e-mail: This is what came up -
To
Subject
Message
In the box is the name of the recipe, but not the recipe itself.  So is yours different?


The other day when I was posting the chili recipes I went to edit, then copy recipe and then I came here and posted it but everything was double spaced.  Today that didn't happen - so whatever it was that was going on, isn't anymore.  Let me know what you see when you e-mail a recipe please.

No, it's the same. I type in my e-mail address and hit send. That's when the Outlook Express window pops up. I'd have to click send again, if I wanted to actually send the recipe(which I don't). Too many steps, I know. I'll have to explore Mean's exporting advice. Don't you love having things you don't know how to use to their full advantage? It's sad, I used to pore over the instruction manual when I got something new, now I just see if I can find a way to suss it all out.   

Samsara, everyday.

Isn't that the truth, what's more, I'm quite happy knowing what I do know about mastercook.  I don't believe I need all the bells and whistles so it doesn't matter.

With the recipe in edit view in MC, go to edit, "copy recipe", then come back here and paste.  Is that how you do it?

yup, now can I have the secret of the picture by your name?

In your last post where it said From MEAN CHEF there this little face beside your name - that's what I'm talking about.  I guess it's called a "smilie" Mine doesn't have one.

What if there were no hypothetical questions?

noodle, if you go into your profile there is a section for view friends.  When the profiles discussion came up I went into this section and added a bunch of people to my friends list just to see what would happen.  Apparently when you add a person to your list they show up with a little face on their posts.  I've added you and now you have this by your name - if you added me to your list I'd have it by my name.  I think only the person who adds the name to their list can see them.

Apart from the cute factor, is there any advantage to doing this?

Not that I can tell noodle, was just explaining what had happened.  I didn't remember doing it until I started seeing those smilies.

Just in case you have a tendency to forget who your friends are.....??

 


Am I ambivalent?  Well, yes and no.

You can set your profiles page so that only your friends can view your info. Otherwise, I don't see how it changes anything, besides giving you cute little icons.

I wonder if that works CM, initially I put a bunch of smart mouth comments in mine then changed my mind when I started to question if it blocked everyone else from reading them.

Thanks for the explanation.  I think I can remember my friends without the smilies . . .

Well, it's showing up whenever you post and I can see it, haven't been drinking or smoking any of those funny cigarettes (sp) either.

That's probably it, I was fooling around in my profile and finding all kinds of neat things.  Thanks MC, for a while there I was a bit concerned.
