This program will read a Living Cookbook 2015, 2013 or 2011 backup file (.lcb) and export your recipes to Living Cookbook .fdx export files which can be imported into other recipe software. Alternatively, you can export your recipes to MasterCook files (.mz2), 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:
- Added MasterCook .mz2 exports. Living Cookbook and MasterCook are two of the most popular “legacy” recipe programs. Practically every recipe program introduced after them knows how to read at least one or both of their formats. Between them, you should be able to import your recipes into practically any new software you choose.
- Updated the User Guide to include important notes on the limitations of the MasterCook .mz2 export and how Living Cookbook Rescue deals with them.
- Removed the Use Case section of the User Guide which described how to use the utility cb2cb to import recipes into MasterCook. Using Living Cookbook Rescue’s new native .mz2 export is now a much easier and better way to do this.
