Preserving a Cus
When you install a new version of NYC, you need to run the new version, and use File… Upgrade… to bring over/upgrade user files from your previous version. In the Upgrade window, you will notice that the ingredient list checkbox is unchecked by default, so the ingredient list that ships with the new NYC will not be overwritten by your old ingredient list during the Upgrade. This is the default so that as new ingredients are added to the list by us, you can take advantage of them with no effort.

invested effort in cus
default setting that affects your ingredient droplist is the auto-update

droplist with new ingredients whenever you save a recipe. You may not want this if you keep a cus
