    That would be wonderful!

    The duplicate contact is displayed in the CB list (centre) twice: original and update, see here

    https://u.pcloud.link/publink/show?code=XZXDjMXZn12uQne8ddk7ODDRilz69m1fmcYy

    It seems the issue is with the list, as both new and old contact point to the identical vCard of the updated contact.

    The issue is intermittent.

    Cardbook log showed “contact updated”.

    The duplicate contacts (in the display) have identical vCards and IDs. When I restart TB the duplicate is gone.

    The activity shows “contact updated”.

    in reply to: Upgrade vcard v3 to v4 #2954

    Another work-around is to move the faulty contacts into a newly created v 3.0 book, delete the “undefined” from the fields, as there are visible in v 3.0, then re-import the fixed contacts into the v 4.0 cardbook.

    Again, why do you recommend using the older 3.0 version over 4.0?

    Tks keymaster this works.

    Two suggestions:

    • Sanity check should happen the moment a contact is imported, not only when it is saved.
    • The input mask that enforces a correct format for Birthday could be used for all dates.

    Why do you recommend 3.0 over 4.0?

    I have upgraded my contacts from 3.0 to 4.0 because NEXTCLOUD is using the 4.0 standard. I am happy to report that all but 10/1000 contacts synch fine.

    Upgrade was done by copy/paste the 3.0 contacts into a new 4.0 cardbook.

    The 10 contacts that have issues with contain

    ANNIVERSARY:undefined
    DEATHDATE:undefined

    I have no idea why these 10 contacts have their fields filled with “undefined”, already present in 3.0.

    These corrupt contacts annot be fixed with the cardbook GUI and any save results in
    Date field value (undefined) does not match the date format of the address book (4.0)
    Here is my test case:

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

    Maybe related to my previous post:

    When clicking on a phone number VIBER pops open, but the number is not transmitted.

    Ideally, I would like to be able to dial a phone number while reading the mail, RM over the address and “Dial with Cardbook” – that would be close to heaven.

    You fixed it, excellent thank you!

    I confirm that with version 26.7a there is only a single editing window per contact.

    Cardbook respects VCard standards, the standard ABook does not – so you will likely run into big problems with syncing standard ABook, I did…

    Cardbook is so much better than ABook in many ways, move and don’t look back!

    Your questions:

    1. Cardbook offers to copy your ABook contacts upon installation. This has worked well for me on Win and Ubuntu. You can of course also export/import.
    2. Why would you want to sync? To me everything is so much better thought through in Cardbook. Move and forget ABook.
    3. Mailmerge works well with Cardbook. One great advantage to me is that I can send mails to contact categories, like “family”. No need to assemble and update ABook lists any longer. Just categorize your contacts, and mail to the categories from the compose window.

    No experience with Google contacts. I am using nextcloud.

    The support on this list, especially from the creators, is fantastic.

    LibreOffice loads the file perfectly. EXCEL needs to be forced to “65001 UTF (UTF-8)” in the import wizard, as you had pointed out.

    I will stick with LibreOffice 😉  Many tks!
