When I copy a recipe into a word document, I change the font and the font size to one that it way easier to read and PRINT a copy for my notebook.
I don't save the recipe on the computer any more, as I not only have a copy to remind me (I do review the notebook), but I also have a full size piece of paper where I can make notes about any changes and notes.
I also reformat a copied and pasted recipe. They often come over as a table and have to be converted. I don't print a recipe until I'm ready to make it, otherwise I'd have thousands of pieces of paper to thumb through rather than thousands of titles to scroll through. Also, I file the recipes by category so I can go to the category I want and look through just those recipes.
We each find the process that works for us.
