True Alphabetical Bookmarks Sorting



  • True alphabetical sorting of bookmarks and ability to sort on a per folder basis. Currently you can only display them sorted, but not actually sort them.



  • Hi,
    I'm sure in agreement with luetage concerning the sorting of bookmark's..to be honest, I really wish the vivaldi browser had a bookmark manager similar to the one that google chrome uses. With chrome when you click on settings..bookmarks, there's an option for 'bookmark manager', once in there you have several option's..one of which is sorting. I realize that the google chrome browser has a LOT more individual's that are developing the browser, so the way I'm thinking is that HOPEFULLY..the developer's of vivaldi will eventually add that feature someday.
    Thanks,
    David



  • I just don't understand why this isn't implemented. It is such an obvious, important feature. I've stopped using V out of irritation at their failure to do this.

    In Vivaldi's bookmarks manager if you click the title column header it'll sort by title. Well, it'll cycle through sort A-Z, sort Z-A, manual sort.

    For me the issue is when creating or editing a bookmarks location, it shows the manual sort which can make it very difficult to find the folder you want in a large bookmarks library such as mine.



  • I agree with this actually. I have years of bookmarks I imported, some I do not mind being unsorted (and some I even prefer it that way, such as my bookmark bar). But adding a new folder today for example, made me realize it was adding the folder to the top. It makes it annoying to need to go in and manually drag them new items to the correct place, when in the past it was 2 mouse clicks to sort all folder.

    @Eldaehc Right-click on the opened Bookmarks Bar folder to add a new folder wherever you wish. Only in the case of adding a new folder or bookmark to the Bookmarks Bar root does it add it to the first position (left).



  • I agree with the author of the post. Sorting bookmarks of a separate folder is a very necessary function, without which my bookmarks turn into hell.

    Current sorting isn’t enough now, I can’t use it because the “root” packs that form the groups at the top level of the hierarchy I ONLY sort manually, but inside some subfolders where I need a lot of sorting, moreover, it’s not constant but periodic, because I bring the most necessary bookmarks to the very top of the list, and the rest is better to stay in alphabetical order.

    @inFlowiaLab I just drag and drop mine, rename them and keep them mostly in alphabetical order.

    As long as you don't try to do it all at once, or store tens of thousands of bookmarks, it is not an issue.



  • @Pesala even with tens of thousands of bookmarks I have not found it to be an issue. Mostly, it's a matter of seeing how bookmarks are sorted throughout the product. In the use case @inFlowiaLab describes, I'm not aware of any browser that applies different sort methods per folder, and applies different sort methods per bookmark allowing you to have a few that are at the top and the rest sorted alphabetically. That is only achieved by first sorting bookmarks alphabetically and then manually. Once you discover that dragging & dropping bookmarks into an empty folder sorts them alphabetically, even though you have manual sort set as the display, you've created that alpha sort and can then reposition those few bookmarks you want at the top. But any new bookmark isn't going to magically get inserted alphabetically and keep the manual sort per bookmark, so it's necessary to maintain the alphabetical sort yourself as you create the bookmarks. This is quite easy using the method I find best for creating bookmarks anyways -- dragging & dropping onto the Bookmarks Panel. Just drop it in the correct location for an alphabetical sort.

    It's important to note that this only matters for those few spots where the UI can only display the manual sort. For three Bookmarks Manager and Bookmarks Panel, you can already switch between showing the bookmarks in a manual sort or sorted by many different attributes including alphabetically by Bookmark Title. You can also sort by date created, URL, nickname, both forward and reverse for each.

    Even with a thousand bookmarks, some people manage to make it an issue. Your trick of sorting bookmarks to a new folder would make this feature request moot, but it does not work for me.

    Selecting multiple bookmarks in the Panel and dragging them around together, adding separators, and renaming bookmarks can achieve pretty much any arrangement.

    I hope someone from the Vivaldi Team is following your posts, and adding this knowledge to the help file.
