  1. Hi, I recently updated from MX4.9 to MX5 (5.1.1.1000) after hesitating for a long time and I am still trying to get used to the new feel. Maxnote looks modern and clean from a design perspective, but it seems to be more focused on that and less on functionality and productivity, as far as my needs go . There are 2 features, in particular, that I really miss in the old Favorites Manager that are breaking Maxnote for me. PS: I did go though the Maxnote stickies, so I am sorry if I am missing something here. (1) Moving files from one folder to another is extremely tedious, cumbersome and counterintuitive. Sorry, but I cannot begin to describe how much I dislike it. I have to click "move to", then cycle through the whole Fav tree manually, and open folders -one by one- to get to the destination file, and then click "confirm". I have to do this for every single bookmark, even if I want to move it to the folder right next to it!! What ever happened to the "drag and drop" feature? Please tell me I can enable it from somewhere I missed. (2) Maxnote layout includes 2 columns on the left (about 30% of the space together) and a Note window on the right (which occupies most of the layout). Working with a lot of bookmarks, I really struggle to see the full folder/bookmark names in the tiny 2 columns. While I find the Note window size needlessly large, the biggest problem is that I cannot find a way to expand the size of those 2 column. They seem to be fixed. Being able to expand their size, or at least that of the 2nd column (the one with the subfolders and files) will help remedy this issue. Btw, I've been using Maxthon as my only browser since its release around 10-15 years ago, so change is hard, and more importantly, any missing functionality really hurts. So, apologies if I seem blunt, but I hope that my feedback is taken into consideration.
  2. Maxnote issues!

    I was talking about Maxnote. Yeah, as per your first pic, that cannot be resized. I guess I will use Maxnote Sidebar for now. I hope they implement 'Drag and Drop' and column 'Resize' features in Maxthon proper. That would be perfect. Anyway, thanks for your replies gents.
  3. Maxnote issues!

    Ah yes thank you! Still don't know how to resize the 2 small columns though as Bugsir suggested?!
  4. Maxnote issues!

    @BugSir ... ty for the reply. I really hope they re-implement 'drag and drop' of folders in Maxnote. Maxthon's power is in its 'drag and drop' feature as far as I am concerned, so it is really weird that they would remove it from the one place that requires it the most in order to facilitate and streamline management of long lists of bookmarks and records. >> Btw I tried and I still cannot resize the 2 columns. Can you please elaborate? @Chantao ... I only get the "select all" boxes AFTER I finish a "move to" command. Is there a way to get that from the start?
  5. I agree. Just saying there is an easy fix till an update drops.
  6. As Kilmatar suggested, just go to windows file extensions (Set Associations) and change .url (Internet shortcut) to Internet Browser.
  7. Hmmm .. I re-uploaded the image. I guess I messed up the first time Ty ... this maybe a "work-around", but the issue is really big lists of favorites, and the manager is the best and right tool to work with them :/
  8. Hi, This is an old issue that I have had with Maxthon for a long time. I have reported it on the old forums a couple of time without a fix so far. by the way, I tried creating this thread in the Bug Report subforum but I had no access. BUG: Basically, when I am in Favorites Manager, I have a hard time dragging favorites around, mainly because the "black repositioning line" is either very finicky or does not show at all. http://imgur.com/a/BhSE9#1 Normally, when I want to drag a fav to another spot, I left-click the link, move it up or down the list till I get to the new spot, move the mouse a bit till I get the "black repositioning line", then release the mouse and the link gets repositioned. This works but only sometimes. I often have difficulty getting the "black line" to show properly. It either does not show at all or it gets "tricky", i.e. it shows for a fraction of a second and I have to keep moving the mouse back and forth -in the little space of the new spot- until the "black line" appears. It seems that the "black line" becomes very precise, and I have to hit certain pixel for it to show. I have tried a couple of work-arounds, none of which are practical or reliable or even help much. The best work-around is to zoom-in very much, like 200%, which sometimes helps make the "black line" appear, but not always. I hope the explanation is clear. I am attaching a small image about the "black line" that I am referring to. Additional Info: OS: Win 7 64-bit Browser: Mx 4.4.5.1000 (default) IE: IE 11 (but I never use it) Passport: I do not use passport Extensions or skins: None (using default) The bug occurs only with Maxthon The bug occurs in Maxthon's Favorites Manager all the time. Thanks!
  9. Ah ok .. well I hope this issue gets sorted as it has been plaguing me for a very long time It has been the only flaw I see in an otherwise awesome browser that I have been using since the days of MyIE2 v1 lol Edit: Btw does the image attachment in the first post show for you?
