Today i tried to get my chrome bookmarks in order and tried OmniOutliner.
Import was almost fine with a few glitches like empty items and some help on indentations.

But organizing the 1000 bookmarks, was so tedious.
What i would need is an outliner that works with the same view and in a Norton Commander way (2 pane File Manager) with single stroke copy and move.  Doing it all with drag and drop made me give up on this chore.

And yeah, cloned items, lots of cloned items.

Obvious question for you… Mac or Windows ? or both…

The old outliner program Brainstorm has something that sounds very similar to what you want:  You can put a “mark” anywhere in a large, complicated outline, and then use a simple key combination to either move or copy entries elsewhere in the outline to that location. 
And, of course, Brainstorm has clones - although they call them namesakes.

That would only work well if you have two views open.
THe problem is that you have to leave the source location in the outline and move to the destination losing your source and no way to come back. Using marks would not help too much, then i had to go through the source multiple times to gather all for a target and repeat it for the next target etc.  The File Manager guys figured out the correct solution.

Maybe one day when i really want a cleanup i write a file that splits the bookmark html into a file tree and later merges it together again. Thats a quickly written script.
