How do I import my recipes from Living Cookbook?
You have two choices:
1. Use cb2cb to convert your .fdx or .fdxz file into the .mz2 format. The .fdx and .fdxz are export format options in Living Cookbook. Right click on one of your cookbooks in Living Cookbook, and select to Export the cookbook. Choose the .fdx or .fdxz format.
2. Purchase a 2nd Level MasterCook Support Ticket. We can convert your .lcb file into MasterCook format and send you back the converted cookbooks. (If you only have the .mdb file, we can convert that file for you. The .lcb file is much preferred though.)
