    MasterCook Lesson 5 - Export and Post Recipe:

    * Open recipe.

    * Click the arrow on the Import/Export icon on the toolbar.

    * Select Export and Mail from the list.

    * Click the Folder tab.

    * Select the location where you would like to export the recipe(s). I usually pick Desktop.

    * In Text Options push the Text Only (*.TXT button). The other options give you a file that can be directly imported into MC, but there is a lot of extra formatting--distracting to anyone who is reading the recipe online. If you were passing directly to a person with MC you would choose the format to match their version of MC.

    * Confirm you have the correct recipes listed in the Recipe pane. It will automatically list the recipe you have open at the time. You can add others by pushing the MasterList button (to the right of the recipe pane), opening a cookbook and dragging and dropping a recipe from the list to the pane.

    * If you’re exporting more than one recipe you can do so as a single file (click the Single File radio button and enter a name for the file) or as multiple files (click the Multiple Files radio button to export them separately).

    * Click the EXPORT button.

    * Open the text file, highlight and copy, paste into the reply box on the website.

    Hi Mahjong, Well..I gave it a try and everything went OK, I guess, until I got to the part
    that says

    "Click the EXPORT button."

    I couldn't find the export button to save my life.

    Also, even if I had, I don't know how to highlight, copy & paste. So, I am back where I started.

    The Export button is the letter icon on the right hand side of the MC window.

    As with most software, there are many ways to do the same thing. You may find Maureen's instructions easier to follow:

    1. Open the recipe that you want to post
    2. Click on EDIT in the top menu bar
    3. Click on COPY RECIPE (about half way down the pop-up menu)
    4. Open the message where you want to post (no need to close MC)
    5. Move the cursor to the box where you want to paste recipe
    6. To paste, press CONTROL V on your keyboard (hold down Ctrl, hit v, release both)

    Mahjong, I just did another one! It's over at Desserts & I think it looks pretty good. Text has to be tightened up a bit, but I will work on that....

    Yippee!!!!!!!!

    Mahjong---

    Thank you, thank you, thank you. I've had this program for years and can do the elementary things on it. But, I've never been able to import correctly. I'm sure that's coming. I can't wait.

    Tonight is a good night to play with the program. I can't wait!
