    OMG Bob. Of course it worked. I'll tell you the truth: I have been so excited about this site and my ability to save family recipes, that I haven't really explored all it's functions. 

    Thank you for the work you do. I'll explore other areas that I never even noticed before!

    When you're editing the instructions on a recipe, there's a tool available from the editor toolbar to insert special characters including the degree symbol. The 'special character' tool icon looks like a small upside down horse shoe, second button from the right on the toolbar, as shown in following image ...

    Click on the 'special character' button as shown above (red arrow is pointing to the button), and that will pop up the 'insert special character' tool as follows ...

    The degree symbol is 7 rows down, 6 columns over from the right, arrow is pointing to the location of the symbol as shown in the image above ...

    Click on the degree symbol and it will insert the symbol into your text in the editor at the current cursor location, similar to the following ...


    Play around with it, let me know if you're able to get it to work?

    Honest, Bob, there was no save button on this page before.  

    Thanks for answering thru email.I really do enjoy and use the site often. Thanks for all the work you do.

    Anyway, I made the fraction entries as you instructed and it worked just fine.


    Another question now: how do I make the degree symbol instead of typing out the word 'degrees' when entering the oven temperature?

    Hmmm, have you tried simply entering 1 1/3 (just as shown with a space between the 1 and the 1/3) in the Quantity field? It works. The ingredients quantity accepts fractional ammounts expressed as 1 1/3, 2 1/2, 3/5, 1/8, 4 3/4, and so on. And the "Yield Calculator" that doubles, halves, the recipe also works with any quantities expressed as fractions. So doubling a recipe with an ingredient quantity of 2 3/4 will become 5 1/2. Try it, should work for you OK.
