Weird description format in bookmarks

  • I have a quite large bookmark file. Therefore, I'm often using the description field to add some personal notes to bookmarks. However, when I click on a bookmark in the bookmark view I get large fields for url, snapshot etc., while the description field has just two narrow lines. This is FAR too small. Of course I can scroll to the right to type my description, but this is pretty awkward. Unfortunately, I could not find any way e.g. to change the size of this description field, so I can see the whole content at once.
    Are there any ideas, what I can do there? Or are there any changes in the pipe?

    Use the bookmark panel. in there the description field is resizeable by dragging the separator up.

    @lader6 It looks like a bug to me that the text in the description field does not wrap.

    Something can probably be done to fix it by editing common.css.

    See the Modding Forum

    Nope, I cannot change anything in the bookmark panel. When trying to pull the lines of the different columns, nothing happens (except e.g. the sorting order, but not the width of the columns).
    As suggested I opened a bug-report.

    confirmed Bug VB-34748 "Description text in bookmarks is not wrapping"

  • @lader6 I do not remember exactly, but it should looks like this: .cardview.description {white-space: normal;}

    nope, I don't want to do some complicated reprogramming of Vivaldi, just change the format of that description field in bookmarks 🙂

    There is no need to be so brusque. A simple "Thank you, but I prefer to wait for it to be implemented in the official release," would do just fine

    A solution was kindly offered to fix the problem so that you do not have to wait. It is not complicated programming, but it does take a little effort.

    Every time I upgrade, I add these few lines to common.css to fix a few simple preferences that are not available yet. It is just a matter of learning where to paste a few lines to a plain text file.

    .startpage .dial .thumbnail-image {
    background-color: transparent;
    .thumbnail-image {box-shadow: none !important;}
    .startpage-navigation {
    display: none !important;}
