Default Lots of bookmarks

I work for an ISP and update many customers' web sites (hosted on the same server) on a regular basis. As a result, I've got a bookmark list for that server a mile long. I just discovered after addig a couple of more bookmarks, that when the list gets too long, the bottom just goes off the screen. It doesn't wrap like the Windows Start menu used to in Win95, or scroll like it does in 98+. Is there any way you can fix this so I'm not limited in the number of bookmarks I can access?

Upgrade to build 876. It should solve your problem.

Not quite. With WindowBlinds running, the arrows show up over the existing menu items and don't scroll the list (they do nothing when clicked). I'd really rather not be forced to exclude _yet another_ app from WB, so if there's anyway to fix it, I'd really appreciate it.

I shoul add, the arrows don't appear right away, tey only show up when you roll the mouse over the spot they should be in.

Well upgrading to 876 should of corrected the problem, It did for everyone else. You're going to have to set the value manually

Exit FlashFXP

open FlashFXP.ini

look under [main] for MIPrCol= if you don't see it then you'll have to add it.

The value after MIPrCol= is the number of items per column, an example would be MIPrCol=20

Start FlashFXP

Did that and it's still not working right. As for your second suggestion, that's not a viable option for me as I am constantly needing to go back and forth between any number of sites throughout the day. Disconnecting and connection with a different server would be a serious PITA. Is there any way to resolve that performance issue (though I haven't really noticed it)?

BTW, I've got Win2KSP3, if that makes a difference.

Sorry I was too quick to reply and didn't completely read what you wrote..

This scrolling behavior is part of the OS and is OS dependent. Prior to FlashFXP supporting groups, large site list were a problem, similiar to the problem you face with site bookmarks. To solve the problem an option was added to force the menu to break every X items. This feature was added to each menu.

As time went on this feature was depreciated and forgotten. When site bookmarks were added this feature was neglected and not provided. I will activate it for the next build.

My second suggestion was for the sites menu. I didn't realize you were specifically referring to the site bookmark menu.

I know but it's going to require a complete rewrite of the bookmark manager.. It'll be done after v2.0 is released.

Ooh, yes, I'd LOVE that too! Part of the reason I've got so many is that som of the are for subfolders of others.
