    We already have something like that .. when you choose to resize your recipe to fit mold size .. if you change mold capacity above the checkbox to 1 pound for example .. it will automatically adjust the cylinder height
    Thank you!

    This is a default editor behavior , it adds a new paragraph on enter , but you can still press shift+enter to add a new line
    Thank you!

    Thanks for your feedback , we have changed this to 0.48 oz/lb when Imperial units are used .
    unfortunately this input should be a number as it is involved in calculations
    Thank you!

    Thank you for your feedback
    1 - this is fixed now
    2- will forward this to the designer but I'm waiting to add several improvements to this dialogue , such add specific gravity to make it more accurate when using volume units and also some options about location and if the additive is a replacement to liquid .. etc
    3- if you hover the additive you will see the suggestion was based on what .. BUT NOW , you can set your additive amount as percentage of total oils or total batch weight .. so you can easily change the default value to what you think is better !
    4 - citric acid is 1-3 % PPO , we use 2% as average value .. will do some work to indicate which suggested value is used .
    5- we have SAP values in additives for this purpose

    Thank you!

    Thanks for getting it fixed!

    I played with the default recipes, the "Simple Salt Bars" recipe has 12.5 mL of salt as an additive, should it be oz?

    I just joined the Slack messaging group but it does not seem to be very active, so I am posting the same things here...
    I am just figuring out how to use the calculator and so far I like it. I did have a few issues though... I first used it through my phone. I registered there, but when I came to the computer, I could not log in and had to set up a new registration- is this normal? Except, once I did, it still did not expand the oils and it said to "Please log in to save your custom additives and reuse them" . Which means it is not recognizing me as being logged in?

    I also was hoping that the recipe would show the INCI name as well as the common name, it would make it easier for us beginners to know what the names are for our packaging. :slightly_smiling_face: since I have not been able to play too much and not print off a recipe, I apologize if this is already a feature.
    I would like to see GHEE vegetable (rather than "any bovine") as an oil option, please.
