I have created a recipe, and want to enter one that has the most of the same ingredients. It would be nice if I could open a recipe in the editor, then do a "save as" to create the modified recipe without having to re-enter all of those ingredients. That way I could still have both recipes.

Thanks.

Try placing the recipe in a blank meal, ie dinner tomorrow. Make the changes in the "dinner" ( add / subtract ingredients). Save that meal as a new recipe.

That's a great idea niteclicks, but I don't think it will work? One difference I noticed between recipes and favorite meals is that recipe's come into your food diary as a single food item, so when you add it, you don't even see the individual ingredients in the diary -- which is great if you want to be able to adjust the portion size for the recipe as a whole, but it doesn't allow you to fiddle with the individual ingredients. Favorite meals come in as individual items, which is a useful shortcut if you have a list of items that you often eat in the same meal, but want the flexibility to make adjustments on a case-by-case basis.

Very annoying. How tough would it be to allow us to copy. I'm supposed to start from scratch to eliminate one ingredient?

Look way at bottom of screen .. there is a "contact" link which sends them either an email or a PM. I've used that before and gotten a response.

Default to "Today" on Reports tab
I think it depends how you get to the reports screen. If you come from the Today button at the bottom of the Diary screen, it plonks you into the Pie chart for today.
