The contacts of the selected address directory or group are presented in this list with their names. The total number of contacts in the particular directory or group is stated right below the list as well as the set that is currently displayed. Use the arrow buttons in the list header to navigate through the pages.
Note : You can change the way and order the contacts are listed here in the Address Book section of the user preferences.
Contact List Actions
The footer of the contacts list provides buttons that operate on the list or the current selection of contacts relatively:
- Create new contact (+)
- Opens the form to add a new contact to the selected directory.
- Delete selected contacts
- Deletes the contacts selected in the list above permanently.
- Remove selected contacts from group
- Removes the selected contacts from the currently selected group.
Contacts can be copied from one directory to another in a similar way as assigning them to groups. Simply drag one or multiple selected contacts with the mouse and drop them onto the target directory. Please note that some properties might be saved into other fields or not be copied at all if the address directories have different schemes.
The full details of a contact are displayed in the rightmost box of the address book screen. Select a single contact in the list in order to see the details here. Contact properties are structured with tabs and boxes grouping similar properties like phone numbers, postal or email addresses.
The groups tab allows direct assignment or removal for the contact to/from contacts groups.
