OK, I just set my notifications for this topic.  Not sure if it will work separately, since of course I get notified of all topics.  But the possible problem is noted.

Jerry, thanks, that movie was very helpful. It mustíve imported from bookdog the first time since I didnít get what the movie showed.


Yes, I'm worried that in some cases Ė for example if the user had been using more than one browser but did not have too many special properties (unsorted folders, Safari separators, etc.) set Ė they'd be better off starting from scratch Ė New Bookmarkshelf Ė instead of doing the Import from Bookdog.† In your case, for example, had you chose to make a "combined" Bookmarkshelf with OmniWeb, Safari, Camino, and Firefox, it would have imported from all four browsers.† Some people might want that, but some might not.† We are going to think about that some more.

One question: I'm getting an authentication error trying to export to Google...


Probably a good catch Ė Thank you!† In trying to reproduce that, I just discovered a bug, introduced in 0.1.9.  Failed to get password from Keychain during Google Bookmarks import.† It's fixed for the next version (not fixed in 0.2.0).† I did not test whether or not this was causing the problem on export, but export works OK for me after fixing.† Please wait for the next version (whatever number we decide to call it, > 0.2.0) and then try that again.

Jerry, thanks, that movie was very helpful. It mustíve imported from bookdog the first time since I didnít get what the movie showed. I created a new document, followed that process and it seems to have worked great.

One question: I'm getting an authentication error trying to export to Google but I donít see where I enter my login information. Where is that done?

Thanks, I look forward to playing around with this some more. And thanks as always for the terrific support.

Hi Jerry, itís 0.1.9.

Thanks for the movie, I'll check it out.

And no, I donít remember it asking to import BookDog stuff but I could just not be remembering accurately.

Thanks for the feedback.  Please tell me which version of BookMacster do you have (in the menu click BookMacster ▸ About BookMacster), and also did you do go through the Import from Bookdog the first time that BookMacster launched?

I think I can get you started with some simple instructions.

I used BookDog and it was fine. Basically, all I want is to first be able to cleanly and easily see by bookmarks in my default browser, OmniWeb, and then be able to sync those to the other browsers on my system (Safari, Firefox and Camino).

With BookMacster I have no idea how to do this. Iíve read the help, probably spent 30 minutes messing around with this thing and I canít see anywhere in the help where it simply tells me how the heck to do a simple sync.

My initial review of this app is itís too complex and documented and too detailed a level. I went to help and I'm guessing I go to Import/Export section of help. Then I'm now guessing I go to the Clients section of the app to specify settings. Iíve selected that I just want to import from OmniWeb and I want to export to the others except OmniWeb, and I've selected Blank Slate for all of them, I hit Bookmarks/Export and nothing happens.

Iím getting really frustrated with this app. I think it REALLY needs a tutorial or a short video showing how to do basic bookmark management and then for those who really want to spend hours delving into micromanaging bookmarks at this level of detail can do so. But dang, I just want to do basic management and syncing. If I have to spend 30 minutes trying to figure the app out and I still canít do it, somethingís wrong.
