      Greetings all, 🙂

      I’ve been deleting some contacts from the main window of Cardbook (that is, the window which has 3 panes: address books, contacts list, and contact details). I’ve sorted them by name, so I can try and keep note of where I got to in my “rationalising” of my contact collection.

      I notice that every time I delete a contact, the list re-sorts and displays the top of the list once more, and I have to scroll down and find my place again. (It doesn’t seem to matter what column I have it sorted by, it still resets itself back to the initial view.)

      I can get my contact culling done in other ways, but it would be nice if this unwanted behaviour could be temporarily turned off.

      Or is there a setting I’ve missed?

      Thanks in advance,

      Roger V.

      This is a very useful request. The solution would make maintaining large books a lot easier.
