Tested browsers for html import are: Safari, Chrome, Firefox, Opera and Camino. Other browsers should work as well as long as the exported file is in standard HTML format. If in doubt drop us a line on the feedback forum. Extensions are available for Safari, Firefox and Chrome. All other browsers can use the "Add to Pins" bookmarklet and still enjoy one-click-adding to Pins
Sure. Both Instapaper and Read it later can export an HTML file that can be safely imported into Pins
All bookmarks added from a browser extension or bookmarklet will be stored in your inbox. From there you can drag them on any folder in your library. The same is true if you drag a URL directly on the Pins dock icon.
Bookmarks support multiple selection with your mouse so when you want to drag bookmarks you will have to keep your mouse button down for about a second before being able to drag them onto your library folders otherwise nothing will get moving
Absolutely. To sync your library online you can register from within Pins for a free account on pinsapp.com
The reason Pins is no longer seeing your bookmarks is because things are stored in different folders in Snow Leopard and Lion. You should still have a folder under your Library/Application Support/ called "pins" (If you need to know how to reach your Library folder in Lion look here ) From the Finder select and copy everything you see under the "pins" folder. Be sure Pins is not running. Then go into Library/Containers and right click on com.pinsapp.pins and select "show package contents". Navigate into Data/Library/Application Support/pins and there paste and overwrite. Now open Pins and your bookmarks should be there again.
When you add a bookmark with the "+" button on the toolbar you can actually insert more than one bookmark at a time. Just separate them with a comma (for example "pinsapp.com, objectivesheep.com, google.com")
Use the command key and your left and right arrows to toggle focus between the folders in your Library and the Bookmarks view
To search in the currently selected folder use the command F key combination. To search in your whole library use command shift F instead. When you are happy with the results you can press enter or the down arrow and you will focus on the bookmark
Press the return key while holding the command key pressed to open the selected bookmark(s)
