      When I edit a contact, the persons photo is showing on the Edit Contact page despite the fact that I have Preferences > Edition > Photo unticked.

      I thought if an item in that list was unchecked, it was not supposed to display when editing a contact (at least that is what the description before the item list says).

      Is there a way I can cause Cardbook to not display the contacts photo when editing a contact?

      Sorry if this has been addressed before, I did a search and didn’t find anything.

      Thanks,

      Bill

      not yet possible…

      but why don’t you want to see the picture in edition ?

        OK… I misunderstood what that option means.  What does unticking that option do?

        I have some contacts that have pictures that I would just as soon not have to see.  I would like to suppress them in the editor window as well as in the lower pane of the main window which shows the details when you select a contact in the list.

        Thanks,

        Bill

        I didn’t realize I could just delete them.  Thanks for that.

        I meant the Cardbook option Preferences > Edition > Photo  that I mentioned in my original posting.  It sounded from the description that unticking that option would cause it to not be displayed.

      in Cardbook option Preferences > Edition, I don’t have a photo… may you send me a printscreen of this to cardbook.thunderbird (at) gmail.com ?

        Now I feel like I am going crazy.  I could have sworn I had seen photo as an option there.  Now when I look it isn’t there.  I must really need to see an eye doctor or something.  😳

        Thanks Philippe.

        Oh… now I know what I did.

        Apparently awhile ago I added a custom field called Photo and set it to X-GOOGLE0.  I can’ even remember why I did this.  That added Photo as an option in the editor.  Last night I unticked the Photo option hoping to suppress the photos, but it didn’t.  I then deleted the custom field, but that didn’t get rid of them either, but it did remove Photo from the list of fields in the editor.
