This update is free for all users who have a Version 2.x license. If you are still using Version 1.x, there may be an upgrade cost – further info is here. (Version 2.x was first available on 2015 Oct 15.)
The Selection menu in the main menu has been removed. Its items have been moved to the Edit menu, except for Show Inspector which has been moved to the Window menu.
Commands Copy to…, Move to… and Merge into…, which previously only existed in the contextual menu, now appear in the new improved Edit main menu as well.
Behaviors of some items in that Edit menu have been fixed or improved.
Fixed a bug which could cause items from browsers to be synced out of order, and some new items therefore lost, if if the
.bmco document contained a Bookmarks Menu hard folder which was empty, and Safari was one of the browser/clients being synced.
Fixed responsiveness when syncing changes from another Mac, via Dropbox for example. This has not been working correctly in recent versions.
Maybe fixed a crash which occurs sometimes when using the Manage Browser Extensions window, particularly in macOS 10.12.6.
Fixed a crash which sometimes occurred after closing a
.bmco document window or while quitting the app, when running version 2.6, in macOS 10.12.6, if syncing was not configured.
The names of Sync Snapshot files archived now separate the date from the browser’s native filename with a dash (‘-‘) instead of a dot (‘.’). The latter caused .Bookmarks to be interpreted by macOS as a filename extension, which incorrectly filtered it from eligible files when using File > Import from only… > Choose File (Advanced) with Chrome, Opera, Canary, Chromium or Vivaldi selected as the file format.
In the Syncing button in the document toolbar, the Ready state is now indicated by a yellow dot instead of a green dot, to emphasize the fact that syncing is Ready but does not begin until the window is closed.
Now supports importing and exporting the old Netscape
.html files which are still exported and imported by most web browsers and bookmarking services.
No longer mangles IPv6 numeric literal URLs upon entering them.
Fixed a bug which caused the sheet indicating Sync Status has changed… and prompting Export to sometimes appear two or three times after clicking the Syncing button to make syncing ready.
No longer fails with Error 54367 when attempting to export to a loose native browser file, or export to a browser installation which has not created a bookmarks file yet (because user has not created any bookmarks).
If the Launch in Background preference is switched on, and a web browser is the active application before the app is launched, and the app is launched from the macOS Dock or LaunchPad, and one or both Global Keyboard Shortcuts are configured, those keyboard shortcuts now work (as expected) in the web browser immediately, without the user first needing activate a different application and then return to the web browser.
Exports to Safari now reliably push into iCloud again for all users of macOS 10.12.6.
After exporting to Safari in some macOS user accounts, when iCloud:Safari syncing is off, no longer displays false warning that macOS indicated trouble while pushing your bookmarks export into iCloud.
Restored ability to export a large number of changes to Opera, and added capability to export a large number of bookmarks to Firefox, Chrome and Vivaldi while they are running, although this is still not recommended. (Large exports to Opera have failed since our version 2.5.3, when we removed the direct sync capability due to impracticality in Opera 48+. The remaining coordinated sync capability had always been limited in size. This new version, together with Version 42 of our BookMacster Sync extension which all users should now have, removes that limit.
Plays better with iCloud when exporting to Safari in the older macOS 10.12.
Now behaves more efficiently and robustly when importing from or exporting to Safari. If no problems occur, completes the process without unnecessary waiting. If rare problems occur, silently recovers and retries more quickly.
Fixed a condition which caused Error 325844 occasionally.
Corrected a bunch of references in Help Book and a few other messages which still referred to the old
.bkmslf file extension which was replaced back in version 2.5 with
Error 64215 now contains a underlying error which indicates why.
Fixed a bug which affected syncing if user has enabled a document’s Settings > Clients > Advanced Settings for Chrome > checkbox Create a Reading/Unsorted. The bug caused an extra unnecessary syncing operation under the hood, and in recent versions, this extra operation would overwrite recent changes from other browsers.
Fixed sorting by domain, host, path document setting, which appears to have been not performing for a long time.
Fixed a bug which could cause a crash instead of presenting Error 298441 or 398441 if something went wrong and timed out while exporting to Safari.
