    Hi there,

    the field (in German) “Anzeigename” drives me crazy. It is automatical updated each time I change something on the contact, but I have no clue how to avoid that or (even better) give an advice which contents I’d like to see.

    So, my request is so have a configurable field as on adresses. The default output is currently “surname lastname” but I’d like to have sorted my contact my lastname.

     

    Thanks in advance

    You can configure what is displayed in the “Preferences”, under “Tab” (these are the names of the English version).

    It is the second tab in the preferences.

    Cheers
    Chris

    this has changed : this is now in the address book properties : so right click on your address book, the second entry (Edit address book), then last tab (Msicellanous) ;O)

    Hi,

    I have already changed the format like discussed here. This is fine for new or edited contacts. But is there any chance to change the display name for <span style=”text-decoration: underline;”>all</span> contacts with one click? Otherwise I have to open, save and close all contacts separately.

    Thanks,
    SHC

    it’s two clicks : right-click on your address book or category, then choose “Generate Display Names” :O)
