bookmarks and search questions

  • no, you can have box selection
    just click and hold you left mouse button on upper left corner and make box around bookmarks/folders you want to move
    then, when they are all blue (selected) drag and drop them where you like

  • Oh yes - unusual, but it does work (sort of) : the problem is, how do you get the box to include all the bookmarks that go below the screen (i.e. you have to scroll)?; dragging the box downwards doesn't scroll the screen as you would expect.

    Also, when I try to drag a selected group, only one bookmark actually moves (the one where the mouse pointer is) : how do you drag all the selected bookmarks at once?

    it does here. Just move your mouse to the bottom of your screen in selection mode. Works other way too (top)

    don't you see a number like this?

  • No, neither happens with me.

    I'm using Opera 25 with OS X 10.6.8 - might that be why it's not working? (Or perhaps it will next time I reboot...)

  • No, neither happens with me.

    yup

    it's 9 months old, new features are implemented in the meantime (many new features )

  • That's a shame. Opera 25 is the last I can run with OS X 10.6.8 :awww:

  • Well, you're running an operating system that's 6 years old now, time to update? Does snow leopard even get security updates anymore?

  • No, it doesn't. But it WAS Apple's last "grown up" OS, unlike those since which have become ever more like versions of iOS.

    I have toyed with the idea of upgrading to Yosemite, but can't run any version of iTunes except iTunes 12. If you've ever seen iTunes after iTunes 10, you'll understand why some long time users don't want anything to do with it.

    Fortunately I can still use the most recent versions of Firefox and Chrome. I'd hoped to use Opera, but if it can't be then so be it.

    (BTW OS X 10.6.8 is still 8 years younger than Windows XP which many users still run...)

  • Look, if you use itunes you don't know what you are doing anyway. There are a tons of viable audio software for os x around that aren't dependent on the operating system. Just use something else.

    Personally I used Cog in the past and have recently switched to Decibel. This serves my basic music player needs just fine.

    One very good reason not to read anything else you've written. Learn some manners. Learn some respect. Become a human being. Goodbye.
