Recipe Design Wizard brings your recipes into the twenty first century with a layout that is attractive and significantly easier to use than traditional recipes. The Recipe Design Wizard Plug-in is available for Mac or Windows.
If you create or edit recipes, you are well aware of the need to make revisions as you experiment with different ingredients and clarify your instructions. The Recipe Design Wizard Plug-in effortlessly accomodates changes to the list of ingredients and the associated instructions by automatically reflowing the recipe and resizing the related graphics as changes are made to either the layout or the content.
Our 2 page brochure contains more information, as well as some recipes.
Our 1 page flyer shows a before and after recipe, to provide a better concept of what this software can do for you.
