    Thanks. I didn't know that. I'm not sure how it can be useful though since you're still in the same situation when you actually want to extract the annotations and paste it somewhere else.

List Management Suggestions - 77 views

lists minor organization list tag (metadata) tag group bundle suggestion

    Note: Suggested in the assumption that lists are meant to act as a more traditional bookmark system

    Organize list entries view - Right now if there's too many entries in a list, I can't find a way of moving an entry much other than dragging it a few entries up or down.

    a. Folder like Sections - So user can organize a bunch of entries under a section (like a bunch of bookmarks of the same entry but different pages) and when they are moved up, it is moved up as a group rather than one by one. Would also be cool if the section can be made invisible so when viewing the list there's no sign of a section but the section entries act the same when dragged.

    b. Page view organization - Moves an entry from say page 5 to page 2 instantly by having a dual pane view of the pages or even a thumbnail view of a bunch of pages with their entries draggable. You could even go further and add a restrictive page view like system where a bunch of entries would be restricted to page 1 and another set restricted to page 2 rather than based on order of entries for public view (though this would eliminate # of entries per page view)

    c. Tags inside List - Tags of entries inside the list are shown on top of the first list entry in a hideable box. (Just feel like it's quicker for giving a preview of the content of the list than when the box is on the side, at least for lists) I guess this sort of acts like a bundle but I feel it's easier since the list is made already before grouping the tags. Maybe take it even further by having sections show only the tags listed under it's entry

    d. Reading list - Duplicating a list and putting it in another section where the options act more like a rss reader that can be flagged as read/unread and starred but only for that list. Could be useful if for example I chanced upon someone's list but didn't finish reading all the entries under it and I'd like to mark which entry I didn't finish reading or want to take note of (so I can mass save the entries I want only) and get back to it later on.

    Sometimes the option can get in the way but at other times it can be useful so I think it would be nice if a user need not go to the Diigo toolbar options everytime to enable it and the enable/disable option be located in the toolbar itself.

    Could also be a keyboard shortcut but I think there would be some need for a visual indicator or it could be annoying.

What's missing in v.3 … - 114 views

    Hello Philipp, hopefully I don't come off as hijacking the thread but this seems like an appropriate on-topic place to post everything that's missing with the new Diigo.

    Joel, I think the problem with the new Diigo (besides the things not working properly) is that in the past the beginners and advanced section were present while the new Diigo tries to combine both features which ends up giving users with less choices and user interface inconsistency.

    A good example is how the bookmarks now have a new tagging interface but creating a new list while on the bookmarks pop-up window results in a new webpage being shown rather than a small pop-up giving the option to create a new list.

    Now when you reach the list creation page, it opts the user to go back to the old comma style separation of tags. Something I prefer but only because I'm used to social bookmarking sites but still, there should be a consistency as to which method of tagging should be done rather than only change part of the site.

    Now where this becomes user unfriendly is the refresh user data option which is something that I don't think both new users and advanced users will quickly pick out. I had to try it before I realized that the new lists only updated when I clicked on it. (Please don't make it auto-refresh! I don't want it to slow down my system.)

    Another example of not really for beginners/not really for advanced users is the menu bar. I like it since I'm a minimalist and for the longest time the only toolbar I've kept in view is the Diigo toolbar because there was no way to use it while retaining it's features but unfortunately for newbies, they won't need it and for advanced users, it lacks many of the features located in the toolbar like bookmarked icons and such and I don't think it's possible to add those features making the Diigo menu more of a convenience for viewing all the information without going to the main bookmarks page. Still, I think if you can add a starred bookmark, I could see it as being slightly useful to someone and could be a good alternative to the auto-filter option though I never tried the option because I didn't know it was possible to do that in Diigo.

    Finally this is more of a personal preference but I think the new version is looking too white and blue. I miss the yellow sections in the highlight previews under each bookmarks and I felt it was easier to read and navigate the site in the past. I think the way to go should be a choice of customizing the colors for the highlights and annotations rather than taking the colors away.

    What does this have to do with the toolbar? I think the new site lay-out influenced the toolbar too and while there wasn't that much yellow in the toolbar before, it seemed more colorful and I thought that was heavily influenced by the site design.

    For ex. I loved the liveliness of the book besides the Diigo icon rather than the new red book icon. It's less spotted but I think these are the type of look that could be delegated to the advanced user look. Certainly the new Diigo and the old Diigo seems to be worlds apart that it's like two different people designed it. The old look was like the friendly Diigo that had the annoying way of presenting highlights and the new Diigo looks to be like the professional office mate/boss that is telling you how to do things because it knows how to make things work better but at the price of taking away your past choices and I think at the end of the day, most users would want an option to meet both and then customize the things they don't like rather than have simpler options that the new interface provides.

    Hopefully Diigo would go to this direction in future updates. The new look seems so straight edged and bland to the point that it's not as fun as before reading highlight previews and sticky notes but now at least the actual webpage where the highlights are located and the shortcuts are less intrusive.

    Hi, just discovered this site today (haven't actually tried it) and from the description it sounds like the perfect research companion to Diigo. Maybe in the future there might be a chance to synchronize both services.

    On further usage, I have to say I'm a bit disappointed with the actual service. I guess I misinterpreted the introduction video as being a social highlighter/search site but it turns out it 's more a search engine + snippets site

    This part:

    "An almost hysterical antagonism toward the gold standard is one issue, which unites statists of all persuasions. They seem to sense - perhaps more clearly and subtly than many consistent defenders of laissez - faire - that gold and economic freedom are inseparable, that the gold standard is an instrument of laissez-faire and that each implies and requires the other."

    Diigo does not show the highlighted part and under the comments section, it's possible to highlight it multiple times and rather than list the highlight chronologically, it appears as the first item
