Well, I'll spend some more time beating on it, with my screen recorder and debugger running.

I'll presume you are using BookMacster 2.2.17 with macOS 10.12.

Hi Jerry- That's exactly what I did the first instance I describe. During the second instance I didn't deal with the "merge" option. So the naming glitch occurs in two different naming sequences. Weird!

Thank you for the follow-up, MrX.  I tried for about 15 minutes to reproduce it, but it always worked properly for me.  When you have 30 seconds, please watch this video, then tell us if I did something differently than you. 

Of course, it's possible that there are other factors required, which we've not discovered yet.

I just had the naming problem reoccur.

I used the Menu Bar drop-down menu to access a softfolder. Since I had previously saved the bookmark I got the pop-up window regarding merging, etc. I elected to have 2 separate bookmarks. When I chose the option to create a new softfolder and named it, the title remained untitled. I had to create a title in Booksmacster.


Post Update:  Several hours later I successfully named a new softfolder.  The only difference from the above-sequence: I did not interact with the merging pop-up window because this was a new bookmark.

Apparently this glitch requires a specific sequence of events to occur.

No problem reporting issues here Smiley

I seem to remember seeing such an issue that if you only changed the name of a folder, the browser, it may have been Safari or Chrome, would not broadcast that a change had occurred, so our apps would not import/sync/export until the next time that a more substantive change had occurred.  My conclusion was that there was nothing we could do about this except file a bug with Apple or Google, which maybe I did, or didn't.

But now I can't find any mention of it in our bug database.  Let us know if this clue helps you to reproduce the problem.

Jerry- I am not able to recreate the problem today. I've tried creating a new soft folder a couple of different ways and the naming sticks.  I'll get back to you if the if the problem happens again.

Sorry to take up your time.  It happened several times before I posted to the forum; I have no idea why it isn't still happening. . .

Hello, MrX. Thank you for contacting us.

Are you using BookMacster to sync bookmarks between browsers?

If so, are you doing this in a browser?  (Must be, because you said BookMacster is hidden?)

If so, which browser? How do you get that popup window?

Do other changes "take" as expected (given a few minutes, as always)?

Softfolder Naming Bug?

When I attempt to name a new softfolder via the popup window the name doesn't "take." A softfolder is created but its name is "untitled." Booksmacster is "hidden" when this occurs.

Booksmacster 2.2.17
Mac OS 10.10.5
