Nested Bookmark Folders Not Sorting



  • So far, a lot of my issues with the browser have been addressed. Thank you, Vivaldi team! However, my biggest issues remaining relate to bookmarks (I am using Vivaldi 1.3 in Windows 64-bit): VB-18253 - Adding Bookmarks From Address Bar Doesn't Sort VB-20380 - Add Bookmark In Bookmark Panel Should Add Current Page If I go to the address bar and click the bookmark icon, the nested bookmark folders I have don't show in order. They are at least tabbed hierarchically now, which is an improvement over initial release, but they appear to show in reverse order of when they were added. This makes it extremely difficult to find the right folder I want to add a bookmark to. Additionally, if I try adding bookmarks from the bookmark panel instead, there's no way to easily add the currently open page as a bookmark. Creating a new bookmark just creates a blank entry instead of auto-filling out the information like Opera 12 did. I don't imagine too many people like manually copying over and typing page urls and page titles. I have thousands of bookmarks, so I can't easily switch to Vivaldi for 24/7 use until one or both of those are fixed.



  • Thanks to the snapshot notes, I learned that it's possible to drag+drop to create bookmarks in the bookmark panel. I'm now successfully able to bookmark sites by dragging the icon to the left of the url into the bookmark panel, with all the appropriate info being created. I would still appreciate these other issues being fixed, but at least now they're not as pressing.

    You can modify this sorting by changing the sorting within the bookmark panel. Not logical in my opinion, but it works that way.

    The problem is that the address bar bookmark list does not respect the sorting chosen in the bookmarks panel. It worked at one time, but when they introduced indentation for the nested folders the sorting broke again.



  • Is this a bug or an unimplemented feature?

    To be clear, we're talking about the tree UI presented when adding a bookmark.

    The best I've seen it do is order the top-level folders only (it's that way for me in 1.7 but not 1.8, despite my repeated sorts in the two bookmarks areas on the theory that one of those will influence the UI seen when adding a bookmark).

    However, in both browsers all the nested ones are seemingly in random order, which is the crux of the problem.

    @rseiler: Mine are in order. Did you auto-sort or sort manually?



  • @Ayespy The panel lists "Sort by Title" in both versions. In main bookmarks area I've clicked "Title."

    Hmmm, so if you're talking about subfolders being in order, then there's some other trick.

    @rseiler: Mine are sorted manually. I'm not going to test it by changing the setting, as it took me a fair while and is working as I wish. Do you have enough bookmarks to make a manual sort completely impractical?

    Either way, it's a bug and should be reported.



  • @Ayespy Not completely impractical, so maybe I will. I've reported it though, as you suggested, since I think worst-case (if not manually sorting) all folders should be alphabetical. It's chaos otherwise.

    @rseiler: I have to agree.
