This program will read a Living Cookbook 2015, 2013 or 2011 backup file (.lcb) and output your recipes to Living Cookbook .fdx export files which can be imported into other recipe software. Alternatively, you can chose to write your recipes to formatted Microsoft Word documents (.docx) with customizable styles or plain text files (.txt). This program is designed to help those who have Living Cookbook backup files, but can no longer run the program because of license key issues.
Changes this release:
- Undid the changes in 1.3 which removed the characters CR, LF and TAB from all text strings exported from the database. Feedback from Living Cookbook users indicated that these are valid formatting characters in Living Cookbook, used to format long blocks of text, e.g. paragraph breaks in long recipe comments and procedures. They should be preserved to maintain compatibility with the fdx files Living Cookbook writes itself.
- Made some under-the-hood improvements to code quality as suggested by code analyzer tools. None of these changes impact the user interface or program output.
Note: there were no documentation changes in this release, but the User Guide was bumped to V1.4.
