bookmarks bar

Post by jpvds » Fri Apr 24, 2009 4:13 pm

I just installed a new version of Avant. On the bookmarks-toolbar I cannot find the two icons to mark a website on this toolbar or to organize my bookmarks.

Are all icons missing? Which skin are you using? Make sure that the file default.skn is in the Avant program folder.

I use the default skin. Just the two icons as you can see in the attachment.

Hmm, those aren't the default icons. Which version of Avant are you using?

I have the latest version. The icons I showed to you were found in the helpfile, under : toolbars/bookmarkbar. These icons cannot be seen on my screen.

Are the icons just missing from the bookmark bar: View >> Bookmarks?
They should also be on the bookmarks toolbar: View >> Toolbars >> Bookmarks Bar
And on the Bookmarks menu item in the main menu.

Did you check default.skn? Maybe it's corrupted. It should be 124,201 bytes.

The file default.skn is correct. In the menu "bookmarks" I cannot find anything as "bookmarks toolbar", just the maps and bookmarks I made myself.

I can see your first screenshot in my browser, but there is no icon to be seen in the two others.

There is a red arrow on the first image, and the icons are circled in red (left hand side) on the last two. Do any match your screen?

IWhat the red arrow refers to, is also visible on my screen. The two red circled icons are invisible.

If you are sure that default.skn is correct, can you see if there is any difference if you try other skins: Tools >> Skins >> ...

I think I resolved the question : first I deleted all bookmarks, then I upgraded internet explorer to internet explorer 8, uninstalled Avant and reinstalled again. Now I can see the icons again. Thanks very much for your attention !

I used internet explorer 7. The strange thing is that I asked the same question two years ago too, but I can't remember if the solution a forum member suggested worked out. Since then, I used Firefox and Chrome. Shortly, I started using Avant again.

After updating IE7 to IE8, Avant would not show the LINKS BAR. IE had renamed the LINKS folder to FAVORITES and Avant did not recognize the folder as the folder to display. I tried to RIGHT CLICK the folder and set it as the ROOT FOLDER, but there wasn't any option available. What ended up working was renaming the folder back to LINKS and then Avant again displayed the LINKS BAR.

HTH someone,

"What ended up working was renaming the folder back to LINKS and then Avant again displayed the LINKS BAR."

You do have to change it in IE; changing it in Avant won't stick.

Re: Empty Bookmarks Bar

Post by obsolum » Sun May 24, 2009 6:59 pm

Hello,

I have a similar problem but not entirely the same. My bookmarks bar is completely empty (see attached screenshot). I don't have the icons to add/organize bookmarks, and no Bookmarks are showing in the bar. I have Avant Browser set to use my IE favorites and they're all still there when I click on Bookmarks in the menu bar. Switching to AB's bookmarks makes them appear okay in the bar, but somehow the IE favourites won't display. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling AB to no avail.

I think what caused this is, I briefly enabled the "show bookmarks bar" in the Windows Taskbar to try it. I didn't like it and turned it off again, and found that my bookmarks bar in AB had gone empty.

I have been using AB for years and never had this problem with the Bookmarks bar before. My default.skn file is in the program folder.

Any suggestions?

I'm using 11.7 Build 26, by the way. And Vista Ultimate 32bit, for what it's worth.

Do you have a folder called Links with items in it?
