    SoapmakingFriend. I don't see that on my screen. How do you get to that page?

    Okay, I found it. You have to enter through BATCH.

    I don't use batch much because I haven't been able to figure out how to get it to work for me.
    But at least now I can finally delete all the clutter recipes that accumulated from testing.

    I don't use batch so the little garbage can doesn't show up. If it was added to the my recipes page, as you indicated, it would be much easier. Thanks for all of you're hard work!!! This is awesome!

    I also wanted to offer if you have not seen SM3 and how it's set up, I'd love to offer you a look at my account so you can see what I mean by transferring info from there to SMF. You can contact me at mclaszlo@gmail.com

    Has the delete option been removed from SMF? I cannot find it anywhere.
    Also, when I change the name or ingredients on my recipe, it automatically saves it as a new recipe and I now have duplicates I cannot delete. I did not have the option to update when changing the name.

    Is anyone having any trouble printing the recipes on one page?
    When I have 6 oils and 4 custom additives, when I print I have the title on one single page, the recipe on sheet 2 and then a single line with date on page 3. Not having any success in having this print on one or pages if the recipe has more details.

    xmasdeer, to delete follow this order:

    At the top of the page, choose Batches, then, choose Load recipe

    Delete recipe_002a.JPG

    Then choose the trash can next to the recipe you want to delete.

    Delete recipe_003.JPG


    I found that it depends on which browser I use. FF does not give me the option to change my print settings to create a single page print. But MS Edge does. So perhaps the problem is browser related.

    Thank you for that info, I have now been successful in deleting the recipes.
    It is a strange place to have the delete option.

    I agree, it is hard to find and when I don't use it for a month, I forget and have to search all over again. But I kept notes in a folder on my computer, so at least I can find how to do it again. Maybe a future update will address the issue of putting it in a location that is more intuitive for the average user.

    I don't use the batches feature so when I go there the page is empty- therefore I guess I can't delete anything! That's frustrating... Unless I'm missing something, which is entirely possible!

    Did you click on Load Recipe? When you do that, it lists all your saved recipes.

    Perhaps I left out a step. Go to Batches, Choose New Batch, all your recipes are listed. Choose one recipe to preview (it doesn't matter, for some reason this is necessary), then Choose LOAD RECIPE. That is when the trash can shows up next to your complete list of saved recipes.

    Can you tell me if molds, fragrance oils, essential oils, herbs/dried flowers, etc will be added to the supply list?

    I don't use the batch feature either. But you don't have to enter through batch. Just click "load recipes" and you'll see all your recipes:

    From there you can delete any recipe you want:
