Description of me:
I am a brand new user of Brave (longtime Firefox user, tired of the complex config needed to make it secure and private).
The first device that I am trying it on is my Android smartphone (full details below).
Description of the issue:
I want to put the individual links in my Bookmarks folder into whatever order I want. In my case, it will be alphabetical order.
Ideal would be a menu choice that says to sort, but some form of manual drag and drop is also perfectly acceptable.
I do not want to put subfolders within my Bookmarks folder because on my mobile device (unlike my desktop), I will only ever have 10-20 bookmarks I think.
Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary):
Click on the 3 dot “hamburger” menu in Brave home page. Select Bookmarks to open them up.
I do not see any way to move links around.
Well, if you click on the 3 dots to the right of any link, it pops up a menu that DOES have a Move option. But that Move option, when selected, only lets you choose the destination folder. Oddly, I found that if I select my sole folder (Mobile bookmarks), then the link gets moved to the bottom of the list when I return to Bookmarks. I suppose that I could painfully use this method on all my links one at a time in order of the link I want to be first thru the one I want to be last.
But there ought to be a better way.
I tried holding down on a link, which selects it, and dragging the link while still holding down, but that does nothing.
Am I missing something?
Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):
There surely must be some way to organize bookmarks.
Reproduces how often:
I fail always!
1.0.70, (the very latest, downloaded yesterday from Google Play).
Mobile Device details
Google Pixel 3, love it…
Android 9.0.0, updated to the very latest patch (e.g. the Dec security update).
I searched thru these forums before posting. Most bookmark organization references were to desktop Brave.
This thread, however, has this exchange:
@bobtheman Which mobile are you talking about? iOS or Android? Also which version are you on?
On Android you will need to hold a finger on the bookmark for a while, for iOS, you’ll need to click on ‘Edit’ at the bottom.
That is what made me think that I could drag and drop links.
But it is failing for me. Holding down on a link for a while does select it, true, but dragging it to a new list position does nothing.
