      Hi! I’ve noticed that the 3 system labels in Google contacts (the ones I can’t edit or delete – “Coworkers”, “Family” and “Friend”) don’t appear at all in Cardbook. All the other labels (the ones I’ve created and I could edit) work perfectly. Is this a bug or I’m missing something in the settings?

      Thanks in advance and thank you for the great add-on!

      Call it bug or feature 😆

      These categories are Google specific – I think they can’t even be changed there. Many things in Google are not according to official specs, these 3 “categories” are part of it.

      Best just ignore them – or create your own categories with similar names that will then also be synchronised in Cardbook.

      Cheers

      as Chris said, these 3 categories are read only categories and CardBook does not display them (it can not handle read only and read write categories for the same address book)
