The Category Labeler add-on lets you to label your foods with color-coded category tags to better organize your food list.
Categorizing is especially handy for large food lists or multi-establishment setups. Categories do not appear on or affect menus – they are a list management tool.
You can add dozens of categories and can edit them at any time. Once edited, the changes will automatically apply to any items that are labeled in your food list.
Options for Categories
The following options are available:
Add a new category
Enter the text for the new category you want to add in this field. Then click the
Add button to add it to your list of categories.
Edit a category
Click a category in your list to select (highlight) it and edit it. Once selected, you can change the text, color, or disable option for the category. When done editing, click the little
OK button next to the text. To discard your edit, click the little
Label Color box
Lets you pick the color for any new or edited category label. Choosing white means the label will have no color fill.
Disable editing of items in this category
Checking this box will prevent food items tagged with this category from being edited. The items will appear muted in the food list (grayed out) to indicate disabled. Removing the check will re-enable editing for items tagged by this label. This allows you to effectively block certain groups of foods, at once, from being changed (edited). It also alerts you to groups of foods you might want to avoid using for certain menus.
NOTE You can still use disabled foods on your menus - you just can't edit them. And if an item tagged with a disabled category is already on a menu, it will remain there unless you remove it.
Remove a category
Remove button removes a selected (highlighted) category from the category list and also removes it from any food item tagged with this category label. Be careful with
Remove as this action is irreversible.
