Newline in Bookmark description
Does anyone know how do I get a newline in the bookmark description please? Hitting CR key just enters the description.
To make matters worse - I used this a lot with Opera 12 and the descriptions my imported bookmark field have converted newlines to some weird symbol.
Directly can't yet.
And I don't remember ever requested. I can't remember every request ever pass here anyway. I never request it as I more a one-liner.
Editing the description in an external editor then copy-paste to Vivaldi is the current workaround I know.
If you check [Vivaldi user profile]/Default/Bookmarks the format become like
\n= new line escape character here.
But if you try to write like that in Vivaldi, Vivaldi will add extra
I have reported it as a bug IIRC. The notes panel allows word wrap, but the Bookmark Description does not.

Thanks for the quick reply and workaround.
Is it safe to edit the Bookmarks file by hand (with Vivaldi shutdown)?
I would like to do a search and replace on the imported bookmarks to change \u0002 to \n

Yes, it's just plain text JSON format. I see you know what to do, maybe I don't need to remind you to backup :smile:
Search and replace worked fine, thanks.
The next issue is the description field is too small (just two line deep) and there doesn't appear to be control to resize it.
@stejjh Drag the separator to resize the pane at the bottom of the Bookmarks Panel.
Thanks, that will do.
I was looking at the bookmark properties pane on the right when selecting a bookmark from the bookmark tab (next to speeddial).
