Transferring InfoExplorer Bookmarks from One User to Another

Bookmarks created by one user can be copied for access by other hypertext users. Bookmark files are saved in the user's $HOME/info or $HOME/info/LibraryName directory with a .bmk extension.


You must have read and write access to the users $HOME/info directories.


  1. Use the cp command to copy a bookmark file from one user to another.

    For example, to copy bookmark file review.bmk in user sharon 's $HOME directory to user donna 's $HOME directory, enter:

    cd /home/sharon/info
    cp review.bmk /home/donna/info
  2. In the InfoExplorer program, reset the new user's default bookmark file using the Defaults Editor window.
