    I've been tweaking stuff with FO and am quite pleased with the results. But I am having a couple of difficulties and I was wondering if anyone had a solution that I could, uh, "borrow" :icon_ devil:

    My basic problem lies with bookmarks. I use xScope instead of the stock browser. I have a regular folder on my desktop for web site shortcuts. I'd like to convert that to a FO label but I can't get FO to see the bookmarks.

    I know the obvious solution is to save my bookmarks in two different apps (stock browser and xScope) and work with them that way, but I was hoping for a more elegant (and less time-intense) solution.

    I think you're out of luck unless the developer provides an option to take input from one of the non-stock browsers or xScope can be enhanced to save its "favorites" in the same storage as the default browser's "bookmarks". I have the same dilemma but hadn't noticed it yet. Thanks for annoying me. :)

    No problem - I'm good at that.

    And something else just came to mind. Is there any way to change the folder icon graphic? I could just use the icon for my folder that I was going to use with FO and keep my current bookmarks in it.

    Not the best overall solution either but certainly a workable one.

    This is just a shot in the dark since I haven't used the app but doesn't "bettercut" enable you to replace default icons? If you investigate and find it doesn't work, we're even. :)

    Well, after making a fool of myself on the XScope sub-forum asking for functionality that would solve the problem of abcOrganizer accessing the default browser's bookmarks, I discovered that all one has to do is to save XScope favorites as "universal bookmarks."

    Once that is done, the bookmarks/favorites are accessible in abcOrganizer.

    My only defense is that I discovered the solution myself before someone pointed it out to me.

    I don't see that option in xscope. How do you save universal bookmarks?

    On the Favorites page, go to the bottom and touch "Edit." The option will appear at the bottom of the edit page.
