Matilda's Fantastic Cookbook Software is simple to use--just type your recipes in, choose from one of the book designs, and print as many copies as you like. There are 27 different designs to choose from, plus 6 half-page (5-1/2" x 8-1/2") designs and 3 recipe card designs (4" x 6" or 3" x 5"), and you can mix and match to your heart's content. You can even opt to use your own custom banners if you're feeling especially creative! You can enter as many recipes as you want - use our new search feature if you need to find recipes by ingredient, title or type. You can add in photos for each recipe--and there's even a birthdays section, an address book section and a biography section where you can add family photos, making your cookbook into a yearbook for your family or organization.
Limited number of page sizes and templates
Table of contents does not have page numbers for recipes.
Table of contents pages labeled 1,2,3 vice i,ii,iii.
This program is good for the beginner who does not have word processing skills.
Final production is problematic if you desire anything other than the canned format.
Data can be exported to Word but is unformated and the images are stripped out.
The two page options are 1 recipe per page which leaves a lot of white space or continous which splits recipes across page boundries i.e. no orphan/widow control.
Since the program is built on Access it could be a lot better.
