When I click the "+" symbol, Safari adds the current webpage to the Reading List.

Previously, I was able to choose from all of my Favorite folders.

This began today after I downloaded Mavericks & Safari 7.0.

I'd appreciate if anyone could help me troubleshoot this.

Thanks in advance,

~Mo

 

 

This is a link to what I want to be able to do, once again:   https://www.apple.com/findouthow/mac/#bookmark

 

 

On a sidenote, I'd also like to disable the Reading List, if there's a way to do that, as well. -A Pet Peeve

    If you click and hold on the plus sign, you can drag down onto your chosen bookmark sub-folder then release. This will add the bookmark to that sub-folder.

    It would be wise to note that this click-hold-drag procedure for creating a bookmark requires good aim and steady hands.

     

    Remember the good old days -- yesterday -- when you could click, choose a collection &/or folder from the drop-down list and know your bookmark would land in the desired location?  Better still, you could count on that same collection/folder being offered as your preferred location for subsequent bookmarks.

     

    Ah, yes, the good old days. ;-)

    Glad that helped. You can also drag the page URL from the address field to the sidebar. This enables you to place the bookmark exactly where you want it in sequence in a folder or sub-folder. It still requires some dexterity!

    I am experiencing the same with the +icon by the URL, my bookmarks now go to "Reading List."  You can press Command/D keys to get the "old" effect of saving book marks to certain folders.  I don't like the new v.7.0 bookmark approach.

    Yes, the good old days, when you also had a chance to edit the sloppy descriptions that some webpage designers use to define their webpages.  Such as, for instance, descriptions having absolutely nothing to indicate the name of the company whose page you're trying to bookmark. 

     

    Command-D does work, but I agree with the OP: the old way was better, and I'd like to disable the reading list.  I never use it.  I bookmark things in an organized fashion, and the new Safari seems to do everything it can to get in the way of doing so.

    For those whom it may assist, I stumbled on another way to edit bookmarks.

     

    Click on the book symbol to open the sidebar.

    Click on the folder that contains you target bookmark

    RIght-Click (or Control-Click) on the bookmark

    The contextual menu that appears offers options for renaming the bookmark or editing its address.

     

    I hope this helps
