@legobuilder26 let me know if the instructions still make sense. In the process of adapting them from .bat to .ps1, they seem to have become less clear.
makes sense to me 👍
@AntoninJcb said in Can't save bookmark nickname:
I found an extension - syncmarx - that is responsible of it. It syncs my bookmarks across other browsers and overrides the nicknames as it's not supported!
Thanks for this special information.
@treego yep, that is the way I do it too... I have a Speed Dial "inbox" in the bookmark bar, but still, a context menu entry "add bookmark to speed dial" is missing.
Would help to bring the speed dial a bit more to the centre and integrate it better in daily bookmark tasks ..... alien
@samaire Sorry for you that it failed. 😞
Now we can only try a special rescue procedure.
Perhaps this https://github.com/bdesham/chrome-export and the python script may help to export the broken Bookamarks file:
Download the script to export bookmaks from https://github.com/bdesham/chrome-export/raw/master/export-chrome-bookmarks
Save file as exportbookmarks.py in a folder of your choice for example D:\TEST\
Start Command line
Run this command to convert:
Copy the following line but change the paths by hand to the correct ones
python D:\TEST\exportbookmarks.py D:\TEST\Bookmarks D:\TEST\Bookmarks_exported.html
Paste it in command line window with Shift+Ins
Please feel free to ask in case of any questions.
@anita-johnson said in Question about sync.:
I feel so insecure syncing while not knowing if stuff and whatt stuff is going to be copied or erased...
There are help articles which you fight find useful -
There's another alternative to accessing a specific bookmark:
If you assign nicknames for your frequently used bookmarks, you can open them by typing the nickname on the Address Bar and the bookmark will show up as the top result.
You can add nicknames in the Bookmarks Panel by editing each bookmark.
This feature is now ALL FIXED. The only thing to remember about moving the "Add active tab" and "Bookmarks" submenu items to the top of the submenu is to
click RMB on "[All Bookmarks]" and select the "Show 'add active tab'" selector from context menu when you want to move the "Add active tab" button,
move the Bookmarks submenu item directly on top of the "[All Bookmarks]" menu item, directly, without any dividers in between (otherwise it will not move there properly).
Thanks to Pesala's image I was finally able to understand how to fix this feature according to what I was used to / needed.
@Pesala On the flip side you could say that the reason all other browsers do this exactly the opposite way (new bookmarks go to the bottom) is that it's natural for most users to have arranged the 'most' used bookmarks on top. So, if every single new bookmark moves ALL other bookmarks down, that just makes things too tedious for the user to keep their favorite bookmarks on top. The default 'should' be at the bottom so that every new bookmark doesn't disturb the entire bookmark folder.
The reason you stated IMO doesn't make a whole lot of sense for the above reason, and this just seems like something that got overlooked by the devs.
If they make this an option, it would be ideal.
The "grey window" was from the same profile (actually I only have 1 - I created another to try some time ago, but have never used it).
I am referring to the "Bookmarks Bar", which I can toggle on/off from the "View" Menu.
Now, when I access through the "Bookmarks" Menu the "Bookmarks Toolbar" seems to have my new bookmarks, but the "Bookmarks Bar" does not.
I had always assumed these were the same; in the past editing "Manage Bookmarks" has changed the "Bookmarks Bar", but they seem to be different entities. Ideally I would like the "Bookmarks Bar", which I use the be the same I manage with "Manage Bookmarks".
PS Just checked the Preferences, and the "Bookmarks Bar" was set to "Bookmarks Toolbar" . I toggled through a couple of other settings, then back to "Bookmarks Toolbar", which seemed to resolve the issue.
I'd like this feature too; I inadvertently made a dup topic about this a few days ago.
I've got a folder of about 40 webcomics that I open on a daily basis, and Vivaldi stalls on me for about 20 seconds while it opens up the tabs.
