Transferring recipes

Post by MrStrange Brew » Sat Nov 12, 2011 7:17 am

Hi,

First post on here. I want to transfer all my recipes onto my other mac computer and I cant seem to find a way to do it. Anyone know how?

Hi, welcome to the forum! I'm not on a Mac, but what comes to my mind is transferring your recipe files from the old computer to a thumb drive or CD and then to the new machine. Since you're on a Mac is iCloud a possibility?

It's all about the "library" folder. This folder is probably located in your documents folder and has the name "BeerTools Pro". Inside the library folder is the "BeerTools Pro Library.rsd" file and the "Recipes" folder. These must me kept together. Copying the whole library folder to the new computer and making sure it is selected in the preferences window should do the trick.

FYI, if you put the library folder on a thumb drive and map it to the same drive on all your machine. Then simply moving the thumb drive from machine to machine makes for really easy transfering.
