Since getting in to the habit of better organizing my bookmarks, I have bookmark folders that are up to three levels deep.
How can I save a bookmark to a specific folder without having to use the mouse or click "Choose..."?
It would be nice if there were a way to just type it, with folder suggestions coming up. I.e. I would be able to hit Ctrl+D, type the name, hit tab, and type Classes\303\HW to have it bookmark to that folder. Right now, I can only bookmark to recently used folders with the keyboard.
I know this can be done with the mouse, but I am looking for a fast way with the keyboard, possible with a plugin of some sort.

The closest I can get you would be:
Ctrl+d, Tab, Tab, spacebar
At that point you can use characters to accelerate to particular folders, right arrow to open them, etc. Perhaps:
cl, right, 30, right, h
At that point, with the correct destination folder selected, you have to Tab twice or Shift+Tab twice before Enter will submit the dialog. Not pretty.
Maybe there's an add-on that eases the process? Over the years there have been many bookmark-related extensions, but I haven't tried (or heard of) any that seem relevant to your request. I think it's worth searching on the Add-ons site in the Bookmarks Category.
If you want one of your five most recently used folders:
Ctrl+d, Tab, Alt+Down
I will check out the add-ons, see if there is anything that would make it a little faster, but the ctrl+d, tab, tab, space combination should be good enough for now, I'm surprised I missed that. I knew about the five most recent, but that wasn't enough for me.
Thanks for the help!
