How do I assign categories to my recipes?

I have used the web importer to import a recipe. Where does the recipe go and how do I assign categories to it?

The recipe is placed into your account at when you import a recipe from the web. If you use the Download button in the web import window after you have pressed SAVE, you can download that recipe to a cookbook in MasterCook 15 on your computer. Likewise, you can sync your online cookbooks to MasterCook 15 on your computer to accomplish the same. This will cause those recipes and the cookbook to appear in MasterCook 15 on the computer.

Categories are something you assign to recipes. You can assign them to your online recipes or from MasterCook 15.

Go to your My Recipes web page here:

Click on one of your recipes to open it. Click on the Edit link just below the recipe's title. At the bottom of the recipe edit screen you can assign an existing category.

In MasterCook you store recipes in cookbooks, just like in real, published cookbooks at a bookstore. Within a cookbook you can assign categories to the recipe. To assign or change a category of a recipe, open the recipe in the recipe edit screen and use the Categories tab.


If you open a cookbook so you are looking at the recipe titles, along the left of the screen you can select to Sort Recipes By: Categories. Just above that you can press the Categorize button. This is an additional way to categories your recipes. You can select multiple recipe titles in this screen and categorize several recipes at once.
