Can I import recipes from Microsoft Word?

Not directly. Microsoft Word is not a recipe format (i.e. Living Cookbook can't tell which part of the file is the recipe name, ingredients, etc.). However, you can use Living Cookbook's capture feature to get your Microsoft Word recipes into Living Cookbook.

The following Living Cookbook 2015 help topics will get you started with recipe capture:

  • Recipe capture tutorial (under Getting started -> Tutorials).
  • Copying recipes from the Internet or text files (under Working with recipes, cookbooks and chapters -> Working with recipes).
