Opera does not sync Speed Dial shortcuts

  • I have logged a bug on this issue. Can't be that hard to fix, come on Opera! It's not like you have a lot of other things to do when you don't have your own render engine anymore. In the meantime I have manually moved all my speed dials to Google Chrome.

  • I have logged a bug on this issue.

    This is not a bug. It was designed to work the way.

  • A suggested enhancement then ...

  • It's not designed to work that way according to the docs I linked:

    "Opera synchronizes bookmarks, open tabs, Speed Dial shortcuts and more from all of your devices. It merges bookmarks from each device you sign in with, remembers which tabs you have open on each device, and lets you access the Speed Dial start pages of your devices, anywhere".

  • and lets you access the Speed Dial start pages of your devices, anywhere".

    Exactly the way it works currently. You ca access SD from other installations by going to Bookmarks > Other Speed Dials.

  • Can someone then explain why www.opera.com/help/account#signin it SPECIFICALLY say SPEED DIAL SYNC : YES ???

  • Read the fine print mate. It specifically says it "lets you access the Speed Dial start pages of your devices" which is exactly what it currently does. You CAN access your speed dials on other devices but it doesn't treat all of your speed dials as one.

  • Can someone then explain why www.opera.com/help/account#signin it SPECIFICALLY say SPEED DIAL SYNC : YES ???

    Well, if one can access speed dial data from other installation/device and that data is changed according to what is done with it, then the data is synced.

  • You ca access SD from other installations by going to Bookmarks > Other Speed Dials.

    Other Speed Dials. Ok I didn't even see that before or realize something was hidden in the folder with the computer name there. Sooo close then! - They just have to move this to the actual Speed Dial.

  • It's so easy. Just access other speed dials from the bookmark menu, copy, and then go to your main speed dial, still in Bookmarks menu. Paste. Then enjoy your Speed Dial menu.

    However, this is not a synchronization. This is copy-paste.

  • You already got answers but I feel like I have to say: Moving speed dial shorcuts into bookmarks is the dumbest work of Opera employers have ever done.

    • The guy who used Opera for almost all of his surfing life.
  • This was the most helpful, I wish it could be placed at the top of this page:
