Make it easier to add a bookmark to folder

  • Hello

    First off, I really Opera but at the moment I am using Chrome for a reason. That is I am heavy on bookmarking and Chrome provide an easy way to add a bookmark to a folder. Both Opera and Firefox has a convoluted method of adding bookmarks to bookmark folders. In Chrome it is much easier.

    The Chrome method
    Simply open the webpage, and the right click on folder in and "Add page". You also have to option to right click on folder and then "Manage bookmarks" to alphabetically sort bookmarks.

    The Opera and Firefox method.
    Here you have no option to simply right click on folder and "Add page". You have to bookmark page and then look for it in another folder and then drag it over to your preferred folder. This is a pain.

    Please add this power user feature.

    Best wishes

    Good point but Im not sure it will happend any time soon cause Opera have very wierd bookmark system that makes no sence. So they will have to change it completely and that will most likely not happend.

  • In Opera you can open the page you want to bookmark, click on the heart button, select the folder and that's it.

  • ...click on the heart button, select the folder and...

    ...and your bookmark will be saved to some unsorted stupid folder so then you have to open bookmark manager and move you bookmark to folder you need. Please is there any more complicated way how to store bookmarks because we dont need simple solution but only most complicated...

    What?! It will be stored in the folder you selected...

    It will be stored in unsorted folder and then you can move it. But !!!and thats important!!! it will be stored to unsorted folder right after you click on heart button.

  • .and your bookmark will be saved to some unsorted stupid folder

    Nope. As said it will be saved in the folder you've selected. Otherwise there wouild be no meaning in selecting a folder.

  • It will be stored in unsorted folder and then you can move it. But !!!and thats important!!! it will be stored to unsorted folder right after you click on heart button.

    Okay, now I understand what you mean. If you only click on the heart menu and then click somewhere else without choosing a folder it will be stored in unsorted bookmarks. But that can't be a problem. If you don't want it there, you just have to select another folder, you don't have to do this:

    so then you have to open bookmark manager and move you bookmark to folder you need.

    My point is: I dont want to store bookmark before I choice folder. What if I change my mind or I want to create new folder?

  • My point is: I dont want to store bookmark before I choice folder. What if I change my mind or I want to create new folder?

    You create it, select it and the bokmark will be on that folder.

    It's kinda similar of when you are choosing a folder to save a file that you are downloading.

    Files will not started to downloading before you choice where to download them.

    Why are you defending Opera so much and tring to convince everyone that even stupid ideas of Operas developers are the best things on the world? Are you get paid dor that or are you from Operas PR?

  • Files will not started to downloading before you choice where to download them.

    Yes, they will.

    Why are you defending Opera so much

    I'm just saying how things work and that things you are asking can already be done. If you like the way it is done or not is up to you.

  • Leocg thanks for the heads up on the alternative way. I do know about that method though and it is still convoluted and time consuming for me. You have to trawl through all your folders and subfolders to find the right one. Doing it the chrome way is easier because you can simply click on the folder and then bookmark by right clicking. Either in that folder or in a sub folder in that folder.

    Bookmarking methodology, for me, is probably one of the biggest usability concerns in any browser.
