Tips for using
Serving Sizer Recipe Cards
Pro for iPad
Using Categories

As you enter the recipes, you can designate many categories, from type of meal (breakfast, lunch, dinner), to courses, to main ingredient, to dietary restrictions. We've included a large list of Sections with Categories. You can add to or delete these defaults to your personal preferences.

When searching for recipes, you can narrow down your list using these categories. Start by visiting the recipe box page. If you are in landscape, the category list appears in a sidebar. If you are in portrait, tap the categories button and a popover of the categories appears.
Details and screenshots are on the help page on our website.

How do categories actually filter?
1) By checking multiple Categories within a Section, you ADD to the number of recipes displayed.  For example, check Lunch and Dinner in the Meal section and BOTH lunch and dinner recipes are shown.
2) By checking multiple Categories in different Sections, only categories that satisfy both section's criteria are shown, SUBTRACTING from the list. Using the above example, I then add a check in the Courses section for Side Dish, and only lunch and dinner side dishes are displayed.
3) Tap a Category twice to Exclude a category. (Symbolized by a
circle with a diagonal line thru it.) Recipes in this category are filtered out. This feature is helpful when you want all Categories except one in a Section.

Help, it appears I've lost recipes!
Most likely some categories are still selected, so some (or perhaps all) recipes are not shown. You will see a filter icon:  Tap on it to view the categories you are filtering by. To "clear" all filters, tap on the CLEAR button next to it.
You will be prompted to confirm.  Select "Clear Selections" and all your recipes should reappear.
