Cannot create a recipe, add fermentables, or anything
« on: August 22, 2021, 01:13:17 PM »
Greetings.  I was using Beersmith 3 on my Mac yesterday for a very easy brew day.  I was going to brew again today and went to enter a recipe to find that I cannot.  The panel that normally sits on the right side of the screen that allows you to add grains, hops, yeast, etc is gone, as is the beer glass that shows the expected color based on your recipe. 

Can anyone help me get this turned back on so I can get back to work on my beer?

Thanks in advance,

Patrick

  The most likely cause is adding some custom fields that are too large.  Open a recipe, click on the button for "select fields" in the bottom right and then de-select any oversize fields there (or de-select all the non-numeric fields) and it should restore the display.
