Pusztuljál, Address Book!

Summary: Exports native “Groups” as vCard CATEGORIES. Ignores CATEGORIES field when importing a vCard.

The UI lets you create distinct “Groups” which you can then drag contacts into. Contacts can be in more than one group. Upon exporting a contact that is in one or more Groups, those Groups are listed in the CATEGORIES field.

However, when importing vCards, the CATEGORIES field is totally ignored by Address Book.

  1. It does not add vCards with a category that matches a current Group to that Group.
  2. It does not create new Groups for vCards with new categories.
  3. It does not even add the CATEGORIES to the end of the notes field.

Though presumably it SHOULD do #1 and #2. Would also be nice if it simply let you edit the groups/categories for a contact simply as a list of tags for that contact.

Frappánsabban én sem tudtam volna összefoglalni. Elrakom a problémát jobb napokra, most valahogy nincs kedvem szívni az Apple hülyesége miatt termékének hiányosságaival. (Mass edit? Már a vcard exportálása és vad sedelésen túl.)
