That's funny, cause I was just doing something similar, but you don't need hs3convert, atleast not if are on a WM device.
What I did in mine, was I went to the Notes tab of the entry I wanted to add the ingredients for a recipe I wanted, I typed "add text here" with a couple returns afterward to make a space in the file.
Then I went to Tools, Export. Name the file with a .txt extension, the location should default to the My Documents folder, which means it will sync to your PC, if you sync Files.
Open the file in Notepad, and look for the item you want to edit, and paste your text into the space you created. Now, this is where you don't do what I did! You will want to delete all other entries out of the database, but leave the header lines at the top. Save and Exit.
Let it sync back, then go back into HS and go to Tools, Import. What I found when I did mine, was it created new entries for EVERYTHING, including the one I edited, so I ended up having to delete the duplicates. But, if you deleted all the other entries, you only have one new entry. Just delete your original entry that you modified, and you are all set.
You can probably use this as a template to add items from your PC, just don't delete the weird characters, I think those are what HS uses to tell what the fields are.
