The New Bookmarks Manager

I've taken a closer look at the new Bookmarks manager.
I think what Opera has done is to fold the functions of Stash separately into Bookmarks. So for example, you have unsorted bookmarks (which was one function of Stash), but you also have: Reading List, Video, Shopping, Travel, and you can create additional folders. Someone wrote that they were using Stash for recipes. One could easily create a folder for recipes. When you make your bookmark, you can place it where you want. I now have four items in my Reading List. This is all quite nice. I'm feeling a little better about the dropping of Stash.
I very much like the visual bookmarks idea. It's user friendly, and pleasing. http://blogs.opera.com/desktop/2014/10/visual-bookmarks-opera-for-computers/
My only negative (and perhaps I'm missing something) is that I can't when I click on the heart (on the right of the address bar) to save something, if I want to put it in the bookmarks bar, I can't seem to put it (as part of the taking of the bookmark) in the folder within the bar that I want, lets say, "Sports." Instead it ends up at the beginning of the Bookmarks Bar, I then have to select it and manually drag it to a folder. In that one sense, the Opera Extension, Add Bookmark is better. With it, you can put the put the bookmark where you want in simpler and quicker fashion -- as part of taking the bookmark. https://addons.opera.com/en/extensions/details/add-bookmark/?display=en
