Using Screen Import More Effectively
Here are some tips for using
NYC Screen Import more effectively:
If you copy-paste a lot of rich text from
websites into the Screen Import area, you may introduce hidden characters that
cause trouble in the import routine. In
such cases you should paste into Notepad first, then copy paste from there to
the Screen Import area. If your recipe lines begin with < or other
characters, remove them before importing.
To import more quickly, you can quickly touch up a recipe that you pasted
into the Screen Import area into NYC generic text format. Prior to pasting your recipe into the Screen
Import area, press the button “NYC generic text format
(sample)” button to see this simple format. It requires “@@@@@” above each
recipe title and it requires blank lines between the components of the recipe
(title, categories, ingredients, directions).
Check the format using the
“Test” button. Press Import
once you know the recipe is in the proper format. This method eliminates the need to select and
identify each recipe component.
