How can i order bookmarks?

asked Mar 19 in vifm by anonymous

I've added some bookmarks with :bmark and I'd like to give them a custom order in the bookmarks menu shown with :bmarks. I've tried editing the vifminfo file but it doesn't work. Is there something I am missing?

Didn't occur to me that the order of bookmarks ends up being quite random. It's probably a good idea to sort entries in :bmarks menu.

I've tried editing the vifminfo file but it doesn't work.

While this isn't recommended to change that file manually, you can reorder bookmarks there. It's not recommended partially because vifm might affect your changes like in this case. Before editing this file close all instances of vifm you have running, otherwise quitting them later will undo your edits.

If you would like to make a bug report or feature request consider using GitHub, SourceForge or e-mail. Posting such things here is acceptable, but this is not a perfect place for them.
