    Changing Serving Size and Shopping List

    I am new to the site and I love the concept of being able to plan my weeks' meals and create a shopping list out of it. However, there is one small issue that I cannot seem to get around.

    From a menu page you can change the serving size, and it updates the amount of each ingredient based on this. However, when you put together your shopping list, it ONLY sticks to the ORIGINAL serving size. This is an unfortunate oversight that is making (for me) the shopping list feature almost completely useless. (Yes, I can go in and adjust manually by using Excel but...this is taking a lot of extra time when it seems that this should be an easy programming fix.)

    Any chance that I am doing something wrong or that we can have this work better? An easy fix, I think, would be to allow us to adjust the number of servings right on the shopping list page.

    No, sorry, the shopping list does not accept the modified serving size. This is something on our wish list for development, but it's not an easy fix...
