    d'oh! I fell for it :lol:
    .. Now I'm thinking about what I want to mix up next,
    .. that I need to check inventory and my shopping list
    .. and that maybe I should buy a label maker and test that feature
    .. and ....

    Years ago I tried EJMUP and Juice Grinder and found what works best for me with this calculator. The others might have made changes since, but I'm still very satisfied. Best to @HotRod19579 You are missed.

    @IDJoel Yes I agree with you, I miss the regular updates.
    So far JC is working fine for me, and doing everything I ask of it, so not really much to chat about.

    @IDJoel Now that I have thought about JC doing everything I want.
    I would like to calculate something that escapes me ATM.
    I have a bunch of recipes in JC and would like to produce a report that tells me how much of each ingredient I need across say 20 recipes, which may or may not have some similarities in flavors.
    The long way is to create a huge spreadsheet with ingredients down the left side and the recipes across the top, and input the quantities in the appropriate cell, and total them out.
    However if there is a way that JC is able to do this, it would save a lot of work.
    Just wondering.

    I don't know of an easy/direct way to create a dedicated ingredient list. Two possible work-arounds might be:

    -- Use the "Add to shopping list" feature.
    • Start with an empty shopping list
    • Add ingredients as desired
    • Problem/shortcoming: No means to track specific amounts without manual adjustment. (ingredient is added in the amount as defined on the ingredient page.)
    -- Use the "Export recipe/All Recipes to XML file."
    I am not savvy enough with spreadsheets to offer anything helpful here. JC allows the exporting of either a single recipe, or all recipes (at once), to an external XML file... which can then be (I assume) manipulated in the same fashion as other spreadsheets. The export function is found under the Tools tab.

    I am not sure what all one could do here; but I am thinking it might reduce, or eliminate the data entry, if nothing else.:blush:

    I am sorry, @G-Fog; I wish I had something better.:(

    Maybe one of our more computer literate JC comrades can chime in... (I hope, I hope, I hope).:D

    Thanks @IDJoel I did try the "Export all recipes", but it did not manage to do what I wanted
    Being a bit (very) impatient, and also to explore ideas in my head, I have started populating a spreadsheet with what I am actually wanting it to do, and to be honest, apart from the masses of data input, it might just do what I want.
    I have the feeling that I am asking JC to do too much of what is only something that exists in my head.:)

    Morning guys.
    For some reason, all my recipes have disappeared from JC :/
    Does anyone know where the recipe files are on the hdd so I can check there?

    Do you remember the file name. If you kept the defaults, it will be stored in the JC file folder.

    Open the Juice Calculator, click on the file tab, if should show the last file opened. Click that file and you should be in business.

    Just thought I should let all know, that this app runs fine under linux using wine. Currently running Kubuntu 17.10 with wine devel 3.7 with no mono, and dotnet 4.0 installed. Been using this almost from the beginning under windows, but had to go to linux, and was hoping I could bring this with me. I could!

    I had that once, I had to go to the file maintenance to get them pointed back to the right spot. Once one was back all were found.

    I have mine set to a network folder so one computer changes all computers. I can work up recipes on my desktop and mix them from my laptop.

    Good to know. I have a Linux server running headless in the basement (bad mental image!), and may tinker with running desktop if I can find certain software that I need.
