Bug Description

Bookmarks should show in the quicklist even if the app isn't open.

This way someone, for example, can easily open their downloads folder without first opening Files.

What exactly is this bug? Right now Files have dynamic quicklists, that show your bookmarks, but as they are dynamic quicklists, they only show up when there's a Files window opened. My question is: Does this bug referring to creating dynamic quicklists, because in that case it should be marked fixed, or a method to show the quicklists even when there's no window opened? (eg. a deamon creates the quicklists, or they are actually static in nature and in the .desktop files)

It would be nice to have quicklists even if there is no Files running.

So this is really a bug in LibUnity, since it doesn't support showing dynamic quicklists when the app window isn't open.

The Files bookmarks are available in ~/.config/gtk-3.0/bookmarks

This feature could be useful also for e.g. Terminal
