Making "all bookmarks" equal to those on bookmarks bar plus other bookmarks questions

  • I use the latest version of Opera with Windows 7.

    I have noticed that when you add a bookmark to a folder within "all bookmarks" (or anywhere in "all bookmarks"), it does not show up in the same spot in the bookmarks bar, and vice versa. Is there any way to have changes, additions, and deletions in "all bookmarks" show up in the corresponding bookmarks bar automatically, and vice versa? If not, is there a quick way to sync between them?

    Also, when opening the bookmarks manager, it always opens to "all bookmarks" and not the bookmarks bar, even if the last time in the bookmarks manager was spent within the bookmark bar listings. Can that be changed (which would not matter if changes to the bookmarks bar automatically showed up in "all bookmarks", as noted in the paragraph just above this one)?

    When saving a bookmark, the problem I have is that when clicking the heart, the listing of the web page you want to add to bookmarks is a folder view, which takes a lot of space from top to bottom, so I cannot see the "done" or "trash" buttons at the bottom of the bookmark list, and I cannot even see the last items at the bottom of the already existing bookmarks. Can we change the original view of the new bookmark so that it shows up in the list format and not the thumbnail format just before adding and saving to bookmarks, which would allow us to see further down the list?

  • Folders on the bookmarks bar are in the Bookmarks bar folder, though they may have been copied from elsewhere. This isn't like in Opera 12 where "Show on Bookmarks bar" was a property of the folder or bookmark. Sorry, nothing to do about it.
