Opera 27 - How do you sort bookmarks?

  • In Opera 26 (and 25?) when you opened a bookmark folder there was a simple option "sort by name" (in alphabetic order) - but it seems gone again: could we get it back? And also the possibility to drag and drop bookmarks whic h also seems to have disappeared.

  • Both of the functions you mention are still in Opera. Sort alphabetically is in the bookmarks menu inside the Opera menu and drag and drop can be done from the bookmarks window (Ctrl+Shift+B),

  • Indeed so, but it would be so much more intuitive if it could be done from within the Bookmarks Manager!

  • Just installed 27 and imported my bookmarks from 12 - NO option to sort the folders alphabetically - had to drag them into order - what a total PITA!
    Same with the bookmarks inside the folders - they are in totally random order - surely it would be really simple to be able to right click and select sort alphabetically?????

  • Yes, which is why they did. Its just not in the bookmarks manager yet. Its only in the bookmarks menu for right now. Read top posts up from your post.

  • I just want them always sorted alphabetically.

  • @jamesisin,

    You might want to take a look at my comment at this thread,

    regarding the extension Chrookmarks for Chrome. It sorts alphabetically, per setting, on its own.

  • I'm using v29.0.1795.47 of Opera and sorting bookmarks is one of the best kept secrets of the Opera development team IF it exists.

    And, IF it exists, why isn't it more obvious to the end users? One of the primary goals of any application development team should be building a user-friendly interface.

    As far as I can see, bookmark sorting functionality simply doesn't exist in Opera - shame on the development team for neglecting a most basic function of list design.

  • Ok, I messed up on my previous post...sorry. Though NOT user-friendly by any means, apparently the booksmarks sort function does exist as posted by lando242 in this thread. Thank you to lando242, and I stand corrected.

  • My bookmarks are not "sorting"

    Opera is awful with bookmarks, just AWFUL.

  • My bookmarks are not "sorting"

    They do not automatically sort. New bookmarks are added to the beginning of the folder. If you wish to sort your bookmarks you have to do it manually from the Bookmarks section of the Opera menu.

    Opera is awful with bookmarks, just AWFUL.

    We eagerly await the extension you are going to program to improve things. Or is crying about how bad something is in an unhelpful way the most we are going to get out of you?
