I would have guessed you'd have already found that feature by now.
I have considered some of those issues. Let me explain my ideas for why those are issues to some. I may consider changing things though.
1. I'm aware of this. It has to do with Mozilla's crappy formatting. It was a PITA just to write the code to extract the URLs. I may add some detection for IE formatted files which are organized nicely enough where I could support bookmark groups on import.
2. The idea is to work on a single group of bookmarks at a time. If you need to work on bookmarks from multiple groups you can use "All Bookmarks" group to make your selections. I know this could be quite annoying if you have many many bookmarks. I'll look into adding that feature.
3. Copylinks supposed to allow you to work on one thing at a time. If you're on the import/export page and decide you don't want to do anything, just select an action and than cancel in the resulting dialog. Copylink automatically takes you back to your bookmarks. I considered adding a back button anyway, may still do that...
Again, sorry for the late reply. I've started school again and have been super busy.
1. I still don't see why you can't put imported urls from an html bookmark file into groups. How does the "groups" feature work anyway internally in the program?
2. Well, I know the idea is to work on a single group at one time. The point I'm making is, if you don't make it that clear that that drop-down menu is for selecting the bookmark group to operate on, other users may make the same mistake I did, and assume that its for putting selected bookmarks into another group, hence running into the same problem I did, i.e. when going back to the original group after figuring out the real purpose for the drop-down menu, all the bookmarks that they selected being de-selected, which can be a pain if you happen to have a lot of bookmarks (like I do).
3. Yeah, I understand that. I just don't think that that's the best way to do things. I'm saying if a user goes to the import/export page either just to check out the available options (like I did) or if he/she actually wants to use one of those options to accomplish said task, then (in the first case) wants to go to another page to view its
options or whatever, or (in the second case) changes his/her mind about wanting to import/export, and wishes to do some other task with the program, then they learn they can't just jump to another page like it would seem would be the natural thing to do. Instead, they must select an option to import or export, then cancel it on the dialog that pops up to go to the main page, and only then
can they select another page to go to. Some users may get discouraged at this, and stop using the program altogether. First impressions are important. I think you should make it as easy as possible to navigate your program. That's all I'm saying.
