recipe management

Postby jawsfree » Wed Oct 10, 2012 10:05 am

OK I know this has probably been discussed but I searched and can't find anything.

My problem is this. In the Beer Tools Pro directory I have several sub folders in the recipe folder. They show up in the program and I can add recipes to them in the program but if I add recipes to the folders in my file manager they don't show up in the program. Is there a way to add recipes to these folder without using the program to manually open each recipe and then save it to the desired folder? I have a ton of recipes and am trying to organize them quickly :D

Thanks

The menu item Library>Scan for Recipes... should find recipes on your hard drive and pull them into the database.

If you put the recipe files into the folders manually, the menu item Library>Rebuild Library... should read the files in the folders and pull them into the database.

Thank you Thank you!! this works great. Just build your file structure like you want it in windows explorer then Rebuild Library and it syncs everything perfectly. Thanks again. :D
