How do I use the Volume Mixer?

You must have a value in the Total Volume field to use this feature. We recommend the use of metric units whereever possible. To increase or decrease the total mix, simply change the Total Volume using the thumbwheel selector and the ingredients will be automatically adjusted. Note: the Volume Mixer adjusts all units proportionally. For example, if you change the Total Volume from 1000ml to 500ml it will adjust all the ingredients by reducing each amount by 50%. All Total Volumes should be expressed in either ml, fl oz or oz, as this allows the proportions to remain constant. For this reason, Gallons, Pints, Quarts and Liters are not included in the unit options.

How do style the text in my entries?

The fields support a range of HTML tags which can be used to create paragraph breaks, bold text etc. For example, the Notes field allows you to insert paragraph breaks by including <br><br> or make text bold by enclosing it in <b></b> tags.
