Unable to import bookmarks to standalone version of Opera 21.0

  • The "Bookmark importer" feature is grayed out (why doesn't software provide a note when something is grayed out??)

  • Do you have Opera Presto (Opera 12.16 and older) installed? If so, have you imported your Presto settings when installing Opera Blink?

  • I installed the usb version and it didn't give me this option. Mine is also greyed out.

    Note that I have my 12.16 installed in e:\opera so I guess its not standard. Took a quick look at the long thread "New install but no bookmarks import." Yuck.

  • Yes. Don't understand your second question, leocg.

    @rif, haha.

    At least for the time being, I've decided to use 12.17 for my portable edition. Importing the bookmarks did work, but there's no setting for importing notes; the function I'm talking about is the upper left "Opera" menu, Settings -> Import and export. It only covers bookmarks for the various browsers and mail, feed lists, and contacts.

  • Don't understand your second question, leocg.

    When you've installed Opera 21, did it asked you about importing your ols settings?

  • I highly doubt it.

  • I highly doubt it.

    So you will have to start Opera 21 once with the parameters "--presto-small-prefs-dir=ROAMING_PROFILE_DIR'" (without the quotes and with the correct path for Opera Presto Profile folder) to import your settings.

    Note: It will reset your Opera 21 profile and you may lost everything in it.

  • So you will have to start Opera 21 once with the parameters "--presto-small-prefs-dir=ROAMING_PROFILE_DIR'" (without the quotes and with the correct path for Opera Presto Profile folder) to import your settings.

    Thanks, this worked perfectly.

  • This worked for me but it doesn't seem to be working for this installation. Is this the right command line?

    "E:\Allison Opera of the future\launcher.exe" --presto-small-prefs-dir=e:\Allison Opera\profile

  • Figured this out. There is a error (Or whatever you want to call it.

    "E:\Allison Opera of the future\launcher.exe" --presto-small-prefs-dir=e:\Allison Opera\profile

    This didn't work because there was a space in the 12.17 install of Allison's!!! Took out the space and it works fine.
