Using an existing recipe as a template for a new one
« on: June 13, 2011, 09:00:12 PM »
I like to twiddle with existing recipes to create new ones.
Beersmith v1.4 had a "save as" button on the recipe page, so you could modify an existing recipe and then save it as a new recipe. Where did it go in v2?

Hi,
  I don't have it in there, but I'm going to add it back in for a future update as a lot of people have requested it the last few days.

Thanks,
Brad

yes; thank you for this new piece of software....   ;D


I too like to copy an old recipe to a new one and "adjust" the recipe after that for any refinements that need to be made w/a new version number

Its actually in the beta build I posted (build 38 open beta).  However, I expect to have the next formal build released and ready for everyone by Tuesday or Wednesday of this week.

In prior versions of beersmith, I used the duplicate function when creating a new recipe from another one.  I don't see it in 2, is it there somewhere?  If not whats the proper way to do this (this is a similar question to this thread so I didn't start a new one)?

Would it be possible to make that a prompt when changing an existing recipe to "Save as"?  Maybe default to a "My Recipes" folder.

Hi,
 To duplicate, just do a Copy/Paste

  The Save-As is actually in the beta build 38 here on the forum and will be in the update I'm releasing to everyone at the end of the week.  It prompts you for a name to save your new recipe as (much like 1.4).

  Keep an eye on the web page for the update.
