Bookmarks Folders Disappearing / Reappearing

    Hi Chris,

    I'm in the process of organizing my bookmarks from various dates, devices and browsers.

    Not all sub folders are showing, though, so when I try to delete what appears to be an empty folder, it won't let me (thankfully). I move these empty looking folders to a 'Delete' folder I created in Bookmarks, but the next day, they contain sub-folders & (more) bookmarks.

    Thanks to the protective features & flexibility of DoogiePIM, and since this is a casual, personal project with no deadline, this is not a major problem, I just wanted to let you know it's happening.

    Thank you!

    Also, whenever I open the program and go to Bookmarks, I'm missing a particular folder - always the same folder and I keep finding it filed incorrectly, buried layers deep inside several subfolders. ( all of my top level folders are in alphabetical order and there are very few of them, it is one of these folders.)

    Tonight , I don't see it at all. I backed up twice during my last session but have yet to find it, and using Search brings nothing up. Thanks, Sarah

    If you load up a backup database, do you get the same problem?
    Try importing into a fresh database first. Do you get your folders correctly?

    Also consider, doogiePIM import of bookmarks won't replicate URLs. So if you had a bookmark URL in two folders at the same time in your other browsers, doogiePIM will only import the first one. This could be a custom setting added to the next update, if required.

    As always, many thanks for reporting this and I hope we can sort it out for you.

    Yes, my backup bookmarks appear in a different order than I left them, too. I'll create a new database tonight & do as you suggest. I imported only upon initially setting up, but since , have been cleaning them, up, manually.

    Thank you Chris, for your prompt assistance.

    OK, I created a new database & imported my 1,300 bookmarks but the folders weren't included, just deleting duplicates & bookmarks with weird looking characters tonight. I'll file tomorrow. If all goes well, I guess I should move everything else over to this database?
