“Hello: I use several groups of bookmarks, most of which are in their discrete bookmark folders. I was looking to share only 1 group with a friend but could not readily find a way of doing that. I realize that I could export all my bookmarks, then edit that file down to the single group of bookmarks. Surely there has to be a more expedient and less manual way of achieving the desired result. Thank you.” Asked by NYC-Guy on Apple Communities.
