Ways to pre-define bookmark properties

Globally in program configuration

Configurations for new bookmarks can be pre-defined globally in the program configuration. These pre-configurations are valid for all databases and applied when you create new bookmarks.

 

1.Click "Options" in the main menu
2.Select "Program configuration"
3.Select the tab "Bookmarks"
4.Click the button "Assign bookmark properties"
5.Enter the properties you want to pre-define for new bookmarks

 

Per folder

It's also possible to pre-define bookmark properties for new/existing bookmarks per folder. These pre-defined bookmark properties are stored per bookmark database.

 

1.Right click a folder
2.Select "Properties"
3.Select the tab "Assign bookmark properties"
4.Enter when and which bookmark properties should be assigned

 

Rule based for certain URLs

A third way is a rule based system that lets you pre-define properties for bookmarks with certain URLs, for example: use the checking method "Internet Explorer/Browser" for all URLs with domain "aignes.com". These pre-defined bookmark properties are stored per bookmark database and assigned to new/existing bookmarks.
Define these rules as unique as possible. If a pre-definition is found and the option "Continue processing with other pre-definitions" is disabled, then further rules won't be assigned to a bookmark. Otherwise it's possible to assign multiple pre-definitions to a single bookmark.

 

1.Click "Options" in the main menu
2.Select "Global bookmark pre-predefinitions"
3.Enter the rules and the properties for new/existing bookmarks

Order how pre-defined bookmark properties are assigned

1.Pre-definitions from program configuration (new bookmarks only)
2.Pre-definitions from folder properties
3.Rule based pre-definitions from "Global bookmark pre-predefinitions" in the Options menu.
Define these rules as unique as possible. If a pre-definition is found and the option "Continue processing with other pre-definitions" is disabled, then further rules won't be assigned to a bookmark. Otherwise it's possible to assign multiple pre-definitions to a single bookmark.

 

If pre-definitions are available in #1 #2 and #3, then they will be assigned from all of them whereas properties from step #2 will override properties from #1, and properties from #3 will override properties from #2 and #1.
