They've ruined the bookmarks

  • It's a real bad thing that you have only one level to store the bookmarks. Another bad thing is, you have to save attachments before you can open them.

    I don't understand what you mean. Opera's bookmark system has folders, so theres not only one level.

    Another bad thing is, you have to save attachments before you can open them.

    Thats a matter of opinion. Generally its a good idea to let your systems scanners have a look at a file before you try and open it. That said, I have my files set to auto-save in the same folder every time and just double click the pop up the appears when they finish and it opens.

    They are working on adding a tree view for bookmarks (you can see an early/buggy version of it in opera:flags), so the one level thing shouldn't be a limitation in the future.

    As lando mentioned above, you aren't limited to storing bookmarks in one level, it does let you create as many subfolders as you want, the only limitation is only being able to view one level from the sidebar on the bookmarks manager and heart menu which they are working on a tree view for.

  • bad ever idea,

    last week, i have downloaded opera but i lose track about where the EXPORT BOOKMARK MENU
    i keep searching in menu and setting but i know it have gone

    did any suggestion for me where i can download the alternative way for this?

  • bad ever idea,

    Keep in mind that this thread is somewhat dated. I don't think Opera 29 was available when the OP posted that (but I could be mistaken, but considering the thread...)

    Yah, that seems to be an issue: you cannot (easily) export your bookmarks. You'll either need a plugin (extension), some are mentioned in this thread, or grab the bookmarks file from the Opera data folder manually.

    The Productivity extensions have several bookmark managers.

    Hope that can help..

  • As a longtime and happy Opera user I don't understand how something as essential as favorites (or, in this case, bookmarks) can be hidden like they are in Opera 29. It almost looks like it was deliberately done; or is this just bad design? I use bookmarks every single time I am on the Internet, and in my opinion this "where the heck are the dang bookmarks" system has no future. I have already uninstalled Opera 29 and 30 and when Opera 12 stops functioning (it has already started to), it's bye-bye Opera and Hello Internet Explorer or Hello Firefox.

  • So, the heart icon next to the address bar is too hidden for you? Same deal with the bookmarks bar?

    You wouldn't be French, would you...? Hmmm, looks like you're from Italy, but French people make exactly the same mistakes: "Explain me..." "Opera as improved Bookmarks"
    Funny. 😉

  • And you are replying to a three-year-old post because...?

  • Because I was searching for something else but this post showed up and caught my interest. Maybe you have an answer to my previous comment, which was about the problem I was trying to find more information about.

  • This topic is too old, about an very old version of Opera and even the bookmarks system probably has changed, so please open a new one.
