You should realize that that option isn't available when not using IE's Favorites.

Yes, sorry about that.

There is one thing what was much easier in prev. version and Orca - Create new group with all opened tabs...

AB 10:
- Menu > Groups > Create new group > OK

AB11:
- Menu > Bookmarks > New Bookmark
- Enable "Add all tabs to Bookmarks" (this option is not saved, it could be)
- Find Groups folder / subfolder (order is not the same as in bookmarks bar)
- Press New folder button
- Press OK

There is also other way, just one click more, but I'd have to use IE favorites and I'd lose new Bookmarks features then.

Therefore my suggestion here, it would be much easier:

Have you got the Tools/Avant Browser Options/Miscellaneous/Use IE Favorites as bookmarks option ON. That's probably what's needed.

Just to note, I have AB 11 Preview, and in:

<< the Tools/Avant Browser Options/Miscellaneous/Use IE Favorites as bookmarks >>

the option check-box is "OFF" (unchecked), and the separate Groups menu option under Bookmarks still show up and operate satisfactorily.

That's odd. I tested it and when I uncheck it the Groups menu disappears!! Are you sure it's separate from the actual Bookmarks?
