Editing Rating Criteria Without Altering Ratings
Some users want to edit the rating criteria without losing the ratings. In NYC versions prior to 5.92, there is no Replace button on the rating criteria edit window, so you can only add or delete criteria, which do not preserve the ratings.
Thus, in versions prior to 5.92, if you really want to edit the criteria without changing any ratings, you can edit the cookbook's ".rli" file where the labels are stored. These are text files that can be opened in Notepad or other text editor. Don't change any numbers or the number of lines in the file, or you could corrupt the “.rli” file. Only alter the text descriptions for the criteria. You may want to back up the ".rli" file first in case you corrupt it.
