Whenever I try to execute bookmark-bmenu-list (which loads the bookmarks file), I get the following error: bmkp-multi-sort: Symbol’s function definition is void: bmkp-info-cp.

I am running on emacs master build version: GNU Emacs 26.0.50 (build 1, x86_64-apple-darwin16.6.0, NS appkit-1504.83 Version 10.12.5 (Build 16F73)) of 2017-07-08 on Mac OS Sierra.


I had the same problem. Turned out there was a file ~/.emacs-bmk-bmenu-state.el that still contained the pesky symbol. I moved the file to a save directory, restarted Emacs, and now bookmark+ works again.

  • Yep. Sorry; this was my bad. I renamed bmkp-info-cp to bmkp-info-node-name-cp when I added bmkp-info-position-cp, without leaving the old name as an (obsolete) alias. And then I went on vacation... I've restored the old name as an alias now. Sorry for the trouble. – Drew Jul 20 '17 at 4:49
