I did follow someones suggestion to use 'Now Your Cooking' software. I just started and I can see some limitations. The limitations probably are my personal lack of computor skills, and I wondering if others have figured out how to work this progrm to their advantage?
If your using this software, have you discovered any tips you could pass on to a beginner? And a non-computor literate person.
A couple of my beginning questions:
Can I disable the preset measurements and ingredients that pop up to help? Then place my own words/ingredients there (to save me time)?
Do I need to place recipes in my own cookbooks? I've just been adding them to the opening page (I deleted what they had there first) and am adding everything there. I have a strange feeling I'm going to regret doing that, but I don't know enough yet to know why I shouldn't do that.?
My catagories don't match their catagories. With in 'Desserts' I have like 20 sub catagories. Can I make my own catagories or does it have to be done thru using different 'cookbooks'? I keep thinking if I use different 'cookbooks' for my sub-catagories I'll have to open and close them non-stop as I add recipes (because I can't add my recipes in order of catagory, due to different locations of certain recipes).
Any help or even tips on this or other software options would be greatly appreciated before I get in too deep? Keeping in mind I'd like to use this for work recipes and all the different needs that goes along with it.
