Hidden Features

There are a few hidden features we’d like to take a moment to point out for you power-users.

In the diary, you can now multi-select entries by shift-clicking the items. This will filter the nutrition summary below to show totals for just your selection. This is very useful if you want to see how a particular meal contributes to your nutrition.

Right-clicking (or control-clicking) on an entry or set of selected entries will show a context-sensitive pop-up menu from which you can view, delete, or copy the selected items. Copied items can be pasted using the widget menu, allowing whole meals to be copied between days.

Gold subscribers also gain the ability to quickly create a new Recipe from a set of selected items.

Another sneaky feature is the ability to enter negative amounts. This can be useful if you have a recipe like a Breakfast smoothy that you normally make with a banana. If you made one with just half a banana, you can then enter -0.5 of a banana to subtract the missing ingredient from your totals:

  • I can highlight multiple entries but the copy function does not seem to work. It does work on other sites though (same result w/ both Safari and Firefox)

  • Thank you for the subtractive feature....doing LCHF I want to subtract things like buns and emglish muffins from some restaurant entries....Egg McMuffin minus the English Muffin, for example. Perfect!!!!

  • OK....Used the subtractive feature this morning....as listed in my comment above. Unfortunately I'm tracking net carbs very closely, and the removed english muffin did no result in 20 carbs removed from my day.....is it a calorie only subtraction?
