Note: The following information is only applicable to Cook'n Versions 8.2 and under. We are still working to make this process available for Version 10.Cook'n can import files which have been exported from Mastercook. This process was optimized for Mastercook version 6. Many users have had success with previous versions, however some recipes may not work due to changes in Mastercook's export format.
To export files from Mastercook in the form that Cook'n is able to
receive them, they must be in text format. To do this:
It is best to move recipes over in chunks or cookbooks.
Some recipes may cause cookn to crash. If you can identify these recipes remove them and they can be entered by hand.
I recommend making a backup of cookn between imports (this is done using the file menu)
