I've looked for a while at trying to input my wife's recipes into something for her that would be printable/exportable into perhaps a small binder or card box or something. I've played around with gourmet with varying success but not been entirely happy. It's been buggy for me when it comes to printing. At the very least, someone can try it out for it's converting/unit suggestions, as they are fantastic. Most here may work directly from org, but if recipes *are* implemented, an exporter or two for half-page or index card sizes would be *phenomenal.* John ---  http://grecipe-manager.sourceforge.net/ > Cheers -- Eric > > -- > Eric Schulte > http://cs.unm.edu/~eschulte/ > >
