There is no recipe list in the game (showing all the available recipes in one place) or did i just miss it?.....:
When consulting the workbench, one can see the available standard-recipes but not the alternative ones. If one has a specific item in his inventory, also the alternative recipes show up at mouseover. So, the only way to know about available (alternative) recipes of items, one hasn't in his inventory (besides writing it down outside the game when retrieving it) is running to a appropriate machine (with 1, 2 or 4 ingredients) and see the available recipe list.
So, when planning a new production line, and just to sensefully complete the ingame information about this (which is there anyway) a simple list of available recipes for craftable items would be highly appreciated.
This is already in the game: press "X", select the third tab "recipes".
