Add Link Dialog
  1. Parent Folder - select a parent folder where your new link will be created.
  2. Create New Sub Folder - enter a name for new subfolder in which the new link should be created. Leave empty if the new link should be created directly in the parent folder.

  4. URL - enter an URL of the link you want to add.
  5. Retrieve Link Information - a button which retrieves Link Name and Favicon for the URL entered in the URL field. Once pressed the button disappears (as shown on the picture).
  6. Link Name - enter a name for the link you want to add. This name will be displayed in SiteBar.
  7. Favicon - a favicon's URL.
  8. Description - for each link a description can be entered. This description is shown instead of URL when a link is pointed by the mouse.
  9. Target - a target on the linked page can be entered. Leave this field empty if you don't want the browser to scroll to a specific location on the bookmarked page.
