Howto transfer SOME bookmarks from one Profile to another?

Posted

I know I can copy the ENTIRE bookmarks folder from one Profile and use that to REPLACE the bookmarks folder in another Profile. Not what I want.

All I want are some of the bookmarks. Can I create a file with just them, and then Import them (without wiping out the existing bookmarks file)?

Maybe there is a way to Synch just the bookmarks folder between two drives?

Either way, the hassle is that one drive will be hooked up as an external and under OSX the Profile folder won't be accessible to the User who is logged in. So I would need to startup with the external drive, drop a copy of the bookmarks folder into the Shared folder, then restart and login with the internal drive...

No. It's all or nothing with such data. There might be an add-on that will do this. I don't know.

There are two ways I can think of.

) Send the links to yourself via e-mail.

) Create an HTML backup of your bookmarks Edit the file removing what you don't want. then import them to the other system,

You would think this would be a standard function... 1) that would probably download all the emails to the drive, when I logged in. 2) removing 99% by hand??? --oh, can you create sub-folders in the Bookmarks file? I could put them there then delete the rest pretty quick...
