Opera Developer 25 25.0.1606.0 speed dial

  • Am I being dim, can't find the button to enter a webpage into speed dial?

    Used to click on the heart symbol but no option in there.

  • I can't judge your mental health, but the heart icon indeed only works for bookmarks right now.
    You can use page's context menu to add it to speed dial.

  • Hi, @agkq62 @christoph142, in the Heart menu's pop-up window, you can press on the SD's button, to add the webpage to the Speed Dial, as shown below:
    The Heart's pop-up - Add webpage to the Speed Dial

    or press the "down-arrow" symbol, to show the other folders under the drop-down list, and then click on the "Bookmarks Bar" label, to add it to the Bookmarks Bar, as below:
    The Heart's pop-up - Add webpage to the Bookmarks Bar

    Unfortunatelly, when you click the Heart menu's button for the first time, it adds the webpage to the Bookmarks Manager, under the "Unsorted Bookmarks". Nevertheless, this feature is still under the development, and therefore there's good chance, that this will be improved/fixed, when it reaches the stable channel.
    Alternatively, you can just press "Ctrl+B", when you are on Windows, or "Command+B" on Mac, to add the web page to the Speed Dial.

  • Thank you, Right click seems the easiest

  • Does anyone know the purpose of the "1 of 4", or whatever number, is? It would be nice to be able to select a speed dial icon there, but the function doesn't work yet maybe? Or am I missing the point?

  • @somersgreg I was wondering about the same thing, and had to check it from some help section to find the answer.

    1. In Opera 25, one cannot choose speed dial icons. Why this is, no one knows. So you cannot do that, at least yet. Maybe the developers will reintroduce the speed dial icons in the future.

    2. The purpose of the "1 to 4" (it can be more too, for example "1 to 7") is to chose a picture for the bookmark section. So when you click the bookmarking heart, the page is saved into your bookmarks. Then the small drop down menu with the "1 to 4" appears and you can scroll the tiny pictures with the arrows on both sides of "1 to 4". Whichever picture you stop on, appears as the image for your bookmark. So basically this new function is a way to choose an images for your bookmark icons, in the same way as the speed dial icons previously had images.

    What are you talking about?

    If you mean using Ctrl + Number to open a Speed Dial entry, it doesn't work. And i think it could be kinda complicated with folders support.
