I know someone mentioned it in here somewhere, but I lost it with all the excitement today...<br><br>All I have for Chimera is some file that says 'bookmark.xml'- Is this really the bookmark file, or should I be searching under something else?<br><br>[color:red]Hold on, it's time for a...</font color=red><br>
that's it... that's the bookmark file.<br><br>You should be able to drag it to a new Safari window to display the list of links (your bookmarks), then just drag them to a Bookmark window<br><br><br>Visit Me At My .Mac Site

What I did was open Explorer, trash the bookmarks, import Chimera's.<br><br>Then trash the preferences and application support folder for Safari, reopen Safari and voila! There in! ...but don't know if it saved any time.<br><br>
i did the drag thing. the address bar indicates i am looking at my bookmarks.xml file, but the page is blank below...nothing to drag. hmmm. perhaps i'll import into IE and try deleting safari prefs.<br><br><br>[color:blue] -sean</font color=blue>

I didn't get it to work with the original file, but if you go to Bookmarks> Manage Bokkmarks> Export bookmarks... in chimera it will save a file you can drag and drop into your bookmarks window.<br><br>[color:yellow]Have A Nice Day! </font color=yellow>
Trog's method is better...<br><br>I did this:<br><br>-Export bookmarks from Chimera to desktop<br>-Named file "Favorites.html"<br>-Replaced 'Favorites' file in Explorer prefs folder with new one (renamed old one, put aside)<br>-Trashed all Safari prefs, .plist files, etc. Anything I found with Safari in the name, I trashed.<br>-Restarted Safari, and *ding*- there were the new bookmarks in the 'Imported IE bookmarks' folder...I reorganized to my liking...<br><br><br>[color:red]Hold on, it's time for a...</font color=red><br>
You can import them by hand from Chimera. Open both browsers, open Safari's Show all bookmarks window, and open Chimera's bookmark tray--then drag the items from the tray to the window.<br><br><br><br>Great wits are sure to madness near allied.--John Dryden, "Absalom and Achitophel"
