Opera 26 Bookmarks - new folder not in root

  • How can I make a new folder in Bookmarks in other place than root?

  • You mean a folder inside a folder? You need to create each folder on root and then drag one folder into another.

  • This is generally known as nested folders. I've mentioned this elsewhere but when adding a new folder in the new bookmarks you cannot drag it and drop it inside another folder. All it seems to do is rearrange the folder order. There's no easy way to delete folders from the bookmarks menu either. And please give us a right click menu. Opera Bookmarks is a start but way behind the native functionality of bookmarking in other browsers.

    Also if Opera could allow website previews in list view instead of the url on a plain background and with the changes mentioned above, this could shape up to be one of the best bookmarking features of any browser and would encourage me to continue using Opera.

  • Entire bookmarks manager is pretty much useless as it is now. You can't do basic operations which are already there in bookmarks bar. Oh, I almost forgot, I miss "bookmark all tabs" feature as well.

  • At least with the bookmarks bar you can create a folder and drag into another folder (nested folders) so its actually more useful than bookmarks right now. And why are Opera giving us this work in progress bookmarks feature in the stable release (v25)?

  • Until Opera improves bookmarks I'm switching to another browser. Slimjet, that name sounds stupid but hey, they have bookmarks sidebar and standard chromium bookmarks manager. I will check from time to time if Opera changes, but that's it for now 😞
