    I posted a recipe that made 4 1/2 cups of sauce, but when I tried to enter that number into the yield area, it wouldn't let me put in 4 1/2 or 4.5. I marked it down to 4 cups of sauce, but people who make the recipe are going to end up with more.

    Do you guys have anything against fractions or decimals?

    Hi Mirjam
    I found that very frustrating also, until I discovered you can put the "4" in yield, hit tab to go to the next square and type ".5 cups" and when you bring the recipe up after it's accepted it shows as
    "4.5 cups", although I have to agree, I can't understand why the first box shouldn't accept decimals or fractions. Hope this helps

    We have nothing against the last half cup icon_wink.gif This is actually a known issue, and on our list to fix. We'll keep you posted.

    It is just that submit form that doesn't allow it. You can click "Send us a correction" and I can edit the recipe to put the correct (fraction included) yield on the recipe, once it has been posted

    Sorry for the extra work.

    Just to let you know, this has been fixed. You can now enter fractions when posting a yield on a recipe, e.g "Makes 2 1/2 cups".

    Note only fractions, not decimals are supported.

    That's great news Gay--the fraction measurement will be very helpful - thank you.
