Copy and paste shopping list
« on: June 08, 2022, 06:08:15 PM »
This is my first post other than my introduction post when I joined the forum. I am new to Beersmith 3, and there is a bit of a learning curve. I love the feature that adds the ingredients to the cart and then produces a shopping list. My brew supply store is 45 min. from home, so I usually email a list of ingredients to them in advance to make certain they have them in stock. My question is this: when I open the shopping list in BS3, I can't copy it to my clipboard so I can paste it into an email; what am I missing?

The best I can do is print it either to the printer or to a .pdf file and use it as an attachment. The problem with that is that my supplier has a form on the website for submission of messages. If I could copy and paste the shopping list into the form, it would simplify things tremendously. Please help.
BTW, I am using macOS Big Sur 11.6.2 on a MacBook Pro.   

TIA,
Tom

Open the Shopping List tab. Select File->Save Report as CSV. Then open the saved .csv file as a spreadsheet or a text file and copy and paste from there. I don't know anything about Macs, but that works on Windows.

Thanks GF. This worked fine. Sorry I didn't reply sooner. I've been busy with medical appointments.
