Dialog box disappears before I can tick relevant boxes

  • Using DevonThinks Clip feature via the extension function in OperaBeta 50.0. When choosing text on a website to save in Devon by invoking the its icon in Opera's icon bar a dialog appears asking me a) whether to allow Opera to access Devon in general and b) whether I want to agree or disagree with saving the content. The dialog is set to disagree and disappears so fast that I can't change any of its settings. Where can I change the display-time for this to become reasonable?

    DevonThinks Clip

    As I've seen it's a Chrome Store extension.
    Not all Chrome extensions works 100% on Opera.

    Btw, O50 it's Beta, works with the Stable?
    Have you tested on Dev?

  • @zalex108 Have tried the developer version and the stable version – their behaviour with the "Clip to Devonthink" extension is identical to what I experience with OperaBeta. It seems we're very close – all it needs is that the dialog stays put. I'm aware it's a minor niggle. Thanks for looking into this.

  • An option I would think about is:

    • Install Chrome.
    • Install DevonThinks Clip extension.
    • Configure the extension and the sites you need to allow.
      --
    • Delete those sites cookies.
    • Test those sites to check if the settings are still as you decided.
      --
    • Copy the extension folder or config file to Opera.
    • Test those sites on Opera.

    Extensions folders are on profile folder, following the "Back up" link from the signature you'll find where they are.

    The profile it's a hidden folder, here you can find how to show them.
