    A minor issue: Diigo 4.0 beta groups abbreviate long titles.

    I can't recall whether Diigo 3 beta did the same. Possibly not.

    A few months ago, I recall paying special attention to a number of bookmarks of Times Higher Education (where original titles were exceptionally long) so that the bookmarks would be legible. I paid special attention to:

    * titles
    * descriptions.

    As far as I can tell, in Diigo 4.0 beta there's no such thing as a description for a group bookmark. What you enter in the description field is represented, but demoted, so the end result of a carefully prepared bookmark may be unexpected.


    1. In the screen shot above, the purple annotations drew attention to space in which we might have gained links to Diigo Meta. Since annotating that screen shot, in recent hours, I'm very glad to see that Diigo Meta is now the default when clicking the title of a group bookmark; it's a much more sensible use of space and clicks.

    2. By coincidence, in recent months the Times Higher Education site is using more sensible titles for their pages. I have updated bookmarks in my library to use the improved titles served by Times Higher Education, then repeated the copy (share) to the group, so now the view of is improved:

    * at least, it's possible to distinguish between the four or more bookmarks

    but still:

    * there is abbreviation in the group UI that does not occur in the personal library UI.
