Menu Dialog


Use the Menu dialog to enter and maintain a list of foods to be used as a menu.

The menu dialog can be invoked in several ways:

  1. By selecting food lines from the Food View and using the right click menu option 'Make Menu from selected..."
  2. By right clicking on a menu in the Food Finder panel (Menus Tab) and selecting the menu option 'Edit Menu..."
  3. By selecting a menu in the Menus dialog (Menu option Food>Menus...) and pressing the Edit... button.

Keys available while editing:

Key Action
Enter Edit the currently selected cell
Arrow keys Move around the spreadsheet (use with Shift to multi-select lines)
Ctrl X Cut the currently selected line(s) to the clipboard
Ctrl C Copy the currently selected line(s) to the clipboard
Ctrl V Paste lines from the clipboard to the current position
Insert Insert a new line at the current position
Delete Delete the selected line(s), deleting all lines will re-enable editing of the nutrient values on the first tab.
Ctrl Up Move the selected line(s) up
Ctrl Down Move the selected line(s) down
Esc (Escape) Cancel editing and revert to previous value (only valid while editing a cell)

The spreadsheet entry acts in the same way as on the Food View (except that you cannot undo/redo).

You can copy food lines from the main view using standard cut/copy/paste.

You can create a new Menu directly from the main food view by selecting the required lines, right clicking to show the context menu and selecting 'Make Menu from selected'.

The columns shown in this dialog are the same as those on the Food View.
