Editing Bookmarks
 

Edit Bookmark

Double-Click on any bookmark and you will be presented with the Edit Bookmark area.  Here is what it looks like . . .

Editing a single bookmark is straight forward.  Make your changes and click the Save button.  You can also delete the bookmark with the Delete button.

Getting back to your bookmarks is done by clicking a Tab, the Back to Bookmarks link, the Cancel button or the Save button.  If you use your browser's Back button to get back, you may not get back to your bookmarks, since Double-Click bookmark editing is done without leaving the bookmarks page you were on.  So remember, click a Tab, the Back to Bookmarks link, the Cancel button or the Save button.

Edit Tab

The Edit Tab page is where you can edit all the bookmarks and headings for a tab.  You select which tab to edit by clicking the tab name on your Bookmarks page.  Then click the 'Edit' link to the right of your tab names.  You will be taken to the Edit Tab page with the highlighted tab ready for editing.

Edit uses a multi-line text box to make it easy to copy and paste groups of bookmarks and headings within a tab, and between tabs.  The headings are left justified, and the bookmarks are indented by a few spaces.  The text spacing helps in viewing your bookmarks and headings while editing, but you don't have to line everything up.  We'll do that for you when you save the tab. 

Each line in the editing area is either a blank line, a heading line, or a bookmark line.  The bookmarks are always a name, followed by a space, followed by a web address, also known as URL (Uniform Resource Locator).  The Web Address / URL must start with http:// or https://.

Use blank lines to add white space between bookmarks and headings.  You can add highlighting options to your bookmarks and headings, and you can include variables in the URL's.  See the Bookmark Highlights or Bookmark Variables help pages.
 

    Highlighting
    Options

Place highlighting options after a heading or bookmark name.  Heading options are: /i /n /t.  Bookmark options are: /b /i /d /a /n.  These options are not checked for validity.  They are used as an option if they are correct, and if not recognized, they are assumed to be part of the heading or bookmark name.  This means you can still have a heading or bookmark name like "Cats / Dogs".  See the Bookmark Highlights help page.
