I restarted this morning and the clipping process now works. When you click on Clippings, the fields to the right change and you can paste in the recipe. Then you double click and set the ingredients, instructions etc. from there.
My next issue is the available print formats. Only two of the eight print formats fit my one page recipe onto one page. I guess I have to keep working at it.
