    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.

    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.

    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.

    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

    Hi Philippe,

    I am still a bit confused.  I probably didn’t state my question very well.

    In version 72.5 my gmail groups are being synced to Cardbook categories.

    I was just afraid, based on the release notes, that in version 72.8 this would no longer be possible.  Will I still be able to sync my gmail groups to categories as in version 72.5?

    Thanks,
    Bill

    I meant the release notes for 72.8.  I don’t see a way to edit that.

    Last night I closed TB and restarted it and the progress bar was still blue half way and not moving.  I tried a couple times and had the same.  This morning the progress bar had disappeared and the “problem” has not recurred.

    Don’t I feel embarrassed.  😳

    I had forgotten about these settings.  I do have it set to do a sync every 60 minutes.  So… no problems other than my memory.

    Today I tried the opposite.  In CardBook, I deleted one of the two contact that I mentioned in my last reply.  Then I went to bed.  When I woke up today, that contact had been deleted from Google Contacts.  I did not restart Thunderbird or click on Synchronize.  So it looks like it is syncing both ways without my telling it to do so.

    After posting the screen shot I ran another test.  I added two contacts to my Google Contacts.  Thunderbird was already running.  I made no changes to anything else.  I did not initiate a sync in CardBook.  I left the CardBook tab showing.  About an hour or so after adding the new contacts in Google Contacts, they appeared in CardBook.

    I definetly do not have that option checked.  Here is a screen shot of that portion of the preferences.

    Interesting… I had only created one new contact.  This was an accident on my part so I deleted it and updated one existing contact and then did the sync.

    In any case, I did update to 58.8 and the status seems to be changing correctly after a sync.

    Thanks for the quick fix!

    Hi Philippe.

    I noticed the heading of the issue in GitLab, Some contacts can’t be synced.  Could you describe the issue a bit for me.  I was able to sync, but the status didn’t change.

    I also was wondering if I should be posting my questions/bugs on GitLab rather than in the forum.

    I don’t know what was going on, but I tried again just now and it worked fine.

    I am now seeing the country for non-US addresses, but I am still not getting the state for US addresses.
