I have a very new system, memory is not a problem. I use my bookmarks for personal, and use the Bookmarks Bar quite heavily. I keep sites I want to get to quickly and frequently on there. The folders on my BB are collections that go together, like medical/health or photography sites, and some folders for research, as in genealogy, vintage toys, etc. “Other” Bookmarks are those I want to save for finding easily later on if I need them,though not nearly as frequently used. "Other Bookmarks also contains Individual links and more folders, for instance one for “Computer” and tech issues. I use the Manager like a file cabinet to keep it all organized and clean it out every now and then.
The specific issues I’ve had in Brave with bookmarks are as follows: When I imported from Chrome, they all came in one folder on the BB, which is fine. It’s when I tried to move them to the bar directly out of the “Imported from Chrome” folder that I ran into issues. I’m use to being able to just drag and drop the links. I can’t move anything around within the manager itself, nor can I expand or collapse the folders. Also, in the Manager the folders do not even show up in the right hand column. They ARE in the left column, but only individual link will show up in the right column, no folders that are withing the parent folders. I am unable to just move any entire folder to the BB. I HAVE found a way to do what I want, but instead of just moving a folder, I"m having to create a new one on the BB and then move the links to the new folder. Time consuming, but doable. Today I have discovered that I AM able to move things around on the BB itself, it’s the Manager where things don’t work correctly. Again, very time consuming and clunky, but doable.Thank you for looking into this issue! I really am liking this browser very much so far.
