Opera synchronizing, but not the speed dial

  • Hi!
    I am using the newest version of Opera. I am synching between 3 PCs, no mobile devices. Synchronizing is activated and there is a little green check mark indicating that it works. However, The speed dial on all 3 computers contains different quick links. Also I miss one piece of functionality that I loved in the old Opera 12: In the quick dial I could press Ctrl+number and then the appropriate quick dial link was opened. Is there any way to get this functionality back?
    Thanks in advance,

  • I can answer on the speeddial part.
    First of, yes that was a very good and extremely convenient feature that I miss too.
    Second, this speeddial supports folder and multiple styles and formats to be saved in, along with an "infinite" number of speeddial tiles to create.
    This might be the reason they did NOT implement any kind of keyboard shortcut to open something from the speeddial.
    (Which is rather sad)

    Edit:
    Thanks to the extremely informative changelogs I can quote you
    "Opera 29 - 2015-04-28
    Customize your keyboard shortcuts."
    well maybe there is a way now to do what we are longing for.

    @the dude who writes the change logs
    how come, I feel like to get less and less information about what you changed or introduced with every new version?

  • Oh okay. Thanks for your quick reply. I thought I read somewhere that the speed dial would be synched just like bookmarks etc.
    😞

  • Sorry I have no clue about the "new" sync feature. All I can tell you was about the keyboard shortcuts.
    As u know in the old (pre 12 versions) you could define what and how you wanted your things to be sync'ed

    So you need to wait for someone that took a look at the new sync, to answer that question.

  • Now I understand your first post better.
    As to chagelogs: the Opera people love to push out updates really often, as most software companies do these days. That might be the reason why change logs don't contain a whole lot of info anymore. I do not like it, to be honest.

  • there is a flag opera://flags/#favorites-bookmark-backend
    which will make possible to sync SD with bookmarks
    (I'm not using sync, so can't be 100% sure in functionality, it's little buggy still for my taste... duplicate bookmarks etc.)

  • @pacman84 you didn't misread. the FAQ for opera accounts does state that speed dial is synchronized between all computers connected to your account.

    @vux777 that is an experimental feature, which is enabled by default. If that is what enables sync for speed dial, then it should work by default.

    I too am experiencing the issue of speed dial not syncing. For me, this isn't a huge deal, as I can easily make changes to each computer myself, but it would be a nice feature, if it worked properly.

  • Can you post a link to the FAQ you are ready that says this feature is enabled in the current stable version please?

  • However, The speed dial on all 3 computers contains different quick links.

    You mean in Bookmarks > Other Speed Dials? Because this is where you will find the SD entries from other devices/installs.

    You can find a full/more detailed changelog in Desktop Team's blog.

  • Thank you leo, have to look for them next time. Though I would expect news about one of the developers cats in a blog and not a description and detailed list of a changelog there, especially when there is a changelog already.
    But enough off-topic here from me.

    Hope pacman and jason can sort their syncing issue out, would be a neat feature to finally use again like in the old Opera 11 times 🙂

  • I found something!
    If you press Ctrl+t for a new tab, then click on bookmarks, you will get a list of all your bookmarks. Now there is an entry on the left side called "other speed dial entries". There is a list of all synchronized computers with their corresponding quick dial entries.
    That's a start!
