Thanks, Leo. Way TMI for my needs, but better than nothing--someplace to research when I update to v. 40 and wonder what's going on. I find that changing the version number at the end of the URL https://www.opera.com/blogs/desktop/changelog-40/ lets me see the previous ones as well.
Thanks for the suggestion. I checked it out, and it isn't really possible to configure this aspect of pdfFactory within Opera. I did try increasing the DPI from 600x600 to 1200x1200, with no effect. In any case, I find that with pages that contain both images and text, the images in the saved PDF file can be selected and copied to the clipboard, just not text. I.e., Acrobat Reader recognizes a difference between text and image in the document, but can't select any text.
... what I also can't understand is why didn't they keep it all and do what Vivaldi has done? I mean they say these were rarely used features and were the cause of a lot of slowdowns in Presto, but yet Vivaldi has perfected it?
Opera was redesigned with a focus on appealing to new users who wanted a less complex browser, in order to try to grow market share and reduce costs. It was felt that the users who demanded deep settings and integrated feature capabilities were too small a market segment to devote significant resources toward for the development/maintenance costs involved. Vivaldi is taking a different path, focusing directly upon the users who want the deep settings and integrated features. Only time will tell which is the wiser choice of focus... perhaps both will be, each in its own particular arena.
Yes, that's what I'm finding in the first couple of days. In other threads, I've seen that the developers want others to create extensions for features that they feel aren't used enough to justify their spending time on them. Hard to believe tab-stacking wasn't much used, though.
Thanks for all this. Different strokes as far as sorting bookmarks go. I give mine shortish names that seem relevant, and then I can go through a long list alphabetically to find what I want. And I do tend to have long lists in folders that have stuff that's important to me. If it's just a few items, I might sort them by priority. For larger lists, I use the trick of starting a name with * or - or #, etc., to move it to the top of an alpha sort.
