How can I get my recipes from NYC onto my iPhone?
We suggest you export your recipes to a text file (File… Export Recipes… to text file…). Make note of what folder you save the text file into. Then use your iPhone’s text import capability to import the text file containing your recipes… It appears that DataCase, FileMagnet, and Files are three iPhone apps that will do this. Here is a review of these:
I don’t see any Move button on the recipe selection window. Where exactly is it?
The Move button is the last button on the right end of the toolbar, just after the Email/Edit button. Depending on your screen resolution and font settings in Windows, you may need to widen the recipe edit window. Do this by dragging the right side of the window to the right. This problem has been fixed in NYC version 5.68 and higher, so it should not even be an issue in later versions.
Is there any way to email a recipe from the "search results" window?
In the Search results window, select the recipes, then on the main window's toolbar (one with small buttons), press the Editor button (its icon is a notepad and pencil). Then press the Email button in the popup window. With NYC 5.71 and higher, there is an Email… button for this right on the search results window, so you can do a search across cookbooks, then email selected recipes directly from the search results window.
Is there any way to export a recipe to the editor from the "search results" window?
In the Search results window, select the recipes, then on the main window's toolbar (one with small buttons), press the Editor button (its icon is a notepad and pencil). Then press the Edit button in the popup window.
How do I get tagged recipes from all cookbooks into a new cookbook?

- press Search… button.
- select “all cookbooks”.

How do I export-to-web from multiple NYC cookbooks?
Eventually we will make filling the export queue (in web
exports) a task that can be perfo
Approach 1: Export-to-Web Each Category From Search Across Cookbooks
We recommend this approach, pioneered by
After each export, NYC will add the files to the \html folder, incrementing recipe and category file numbers (R*.htm and C*.htm) as necessary and updating the category index (index.htm).
Approach 2: Export-to-Web Each Cookbook From Search Across Cookbooks
1. Create different folders on your website, one for each cookbook's recipes.
2. Treat the cookbook names (and their folders) as MAJOR categories, and treat the categories under each cookbook as subcategories.
3. Use NYC to export-to-web a cookbook.
4. Copy the \html folder results to a separate subfolder (one for each cookbook you export) of your web upload folder. Do this BEFORE exporting the next cookbook. This includes the index.htm, C*.htm, and R*.htm files. These files are:
a. index.htm = category list for each cookbook
b. C*.htm = recipe list for each category
c. R*.htm = recipe pages
5. Repeat steps 3. and 4. for each cookbook you want on your website.
6. Add your own front-end index to your website that provides a link to each cookbook’s folder and index.htm file (i.e., a link to the category index created by NYC for each cookbook.).
When a website user clicks on a link to a cookbook on your front-end index, he will be taken to one of NYC’s category indexes (\subfolder\index.htm), so all links in the .htm files referenced from that point lower will work.
For a powerful example of how an enlightened NYC user applied the export-to-web feature, integrating it with their website’s search engine and category listing, see http://www.fidotel.com/public/forums/cooking

3. Provide the filename or select the NYC cookbook to export to. If you are exporting to an NYC cookbook, export files must be in the same directory as your NYC cookbooks or you will encounter problems.
4. Now from the "Select recipes" window, make sure the "all recipes" is selected under "List" unless you want to limit your search something other than all recipes. Click on the "Search" button.
5. a) In the "
b) To the left of "these keywords", pick the type of match from the list displayed when you click the down-arrow. "Any" will match any keyword you entered in any recipe (ex. blueberry pie will find all recipes with either blueberry or pie in the field being searched unless blueberry pie is enclosed in double quotes. However picking "All of" will pick all recipes containing both words in any position (ex. blueberry pie, blueberry-raspberry pie, etc.)
c) Under "#ingred=", leave it at "any" unless you want the search restricted to recipes with a limited number of ingredients.
d) Under "In recipe:", select the fields you want searched (ex. check "name" and "ingredients" to search for your keywords in both the recipe name and the ingredients list.
e) Check the "show parsing" box if you want to see exactly what NYC will search for.

9. Click the "Apply" button to copy the selected recipes from the "Search results" screen to the "Export screen" list. If you had more than 1000 recipes in your list, click the "+" to move to recipes "1001-whatever”). Repeat steps 8 & 9 as many times as required.
