How to Close a Recipe without Shutting Down the Program

Postby splashmike » Sat Apr 07, 2018 9:42 am

I would like to know how to clear a recipe that I've opened without shutting down the entire program. Both CTRL-W and CTRL-Q shut down the entire program. It would seem that based on the descriptions CTRL-Q should "exit" the program and CTRL-W should "close" the open recipe, but this is not the case. Can anyone provide some guidance? This has baffled me forever.

Thanks.

Apologies as I see I asked this question a while ago and Jeff did respond. I do still find it odd that there isn't an easy way to clear a recipe so you are back to your starting recipe template (i.e., a blank slate on which to work). Perhaps I'm missing this.

I always start a new recipe with a template recipe, which includes all of my brew data (mash tun, boil kettle, brewhouse efficiency, boiloff, mash schedule, target volumes, etc.) so when I need to switch to a new blank recipe I just open that.

I usually hit the new item button while a recipe folder is selected. This closes the current recipe and creates a new recipe with your default settings.
