I’ve been super-frustrated trying to use ⌘-D to add bookmarks ever since I installed Sierra. The browser only wants to add my bookmarks to existing folders. I, on the other hand, want my bookmarks to go to the main list until I have time to weed and sort them.
This morning, I finally found out how to save bookmarks to the Bookmarks list in Sierra:
- Hover your mouse over the left side of the URL bar (aka the smart search field). A circled ⊕ appears.
- Do not click it. If you do, you’ll just add the page to the reading list. Instead, click-and-hold until a contextual menu appears.
- Now move the cursor down to “Bookmarks” and click there.
Yeah, it’s a lot stupider than just typing ⌘-D, but at least it works the way you expect. If bookmarks and ⌘-D are working right for you, please let me know. I can’t think of anything I might have done to mess up Safari but at least it will be a data point to help.
