I'm using a recipe template in open office writer and it uses a list for ingredients and one for directions.  I have a printer that flips the paper (3x5 recipe cards for me) and w1rites on the card.  I'm trying to write volumes (tsp, tbs, cup, etc) on one side and the same recipe in grams (to use my new scale) on the other side.  MY PROBLEM: I cannot get the title of the recipe (on page 2) to center on the page and SEPERATE FROM THE LIST.  Help me with lists.

I'd suggest something like this the attached file. Don't forget to also change the Farenheit to Celsius.

rindi,
You did exactly what I'm trying to do: on the second page.  You centered
--------------------
                         Angel Biscuits
                        Very good biscuits
ingredients                                      directions
----------------------
on the second page.  I thought it was somehow connecting to the "ingredients list" and centering over that rather than the whole page.  This doesn't happen on page one and I don't know why.  btw, I'm using libreoffice in ubuntu.
The second page looks inappropriately like:
--------------------
 Angel Biscuits                                            
 Very good biscuits
ingredients                                      directions
----------------------

I'm on LibreOffice on MakuluLinux LinDoz, which is based on but much better than Ubuntu. What I did was first to use a header for the two first lines, and centered the header. Headers come up the same on all pages.

But don't forget to convert fahrenheit to centigrade. That is probably more important than the measurement of the ingredients. measurements like spoons or teaspoons or cups are pretty much universal. It would be different if you were using ounces, pounds, pints, gallons etc, those would have to be translated to the normal measurements.

rindi,
In all honesty, I bought a 15 dollar food scale that i wanted to use because i read that cooking using weights was an easier and better way to cook.  i don't know if i believe it so i made recipe cards that have volume measurement on one side of the card and the same recipe using weights on the other side.  i can pick which side i want to look at or i can flip it over since they're two ways to write the same quantity.
