HT2486 Address book will no longer sort when typing name

Address book will no longer sort names when you begin to type

Have you tried resetting your sort option in Address Book / Preferences? Change it from whatever you have it (e.g. First Name) to the other choice. Then try to Search a contact. If it works, then go back in and reset it to what you had it before.

  • Snow Leopard Mail Address Book does no longer sort names

    Hi,
    I noticed that, after I installed Snow Leopard, the address book I access in Mail does no longer show entries sorted by last names although I set the the address book I access from the dock to do so and it works fine. I thought they're one and the same. How come there is this discrepancy and is there a way to resolve the issue?
    Best
    Frank

    Frank,
    The Address Book application opened from the Dock responds to its preference setting for this sort. Quit Mail, and then confirm the sort you want to see in the AB application -- you can choose not only Last Name sort, but whether Last Name appears before First Name, as I am sure you know.
    Now relaunch Mail, and when you access from Mail it should now have the same sort you selected in the AB app. Mail is apparently picking up the preference setting in the AB app at the time it launches, and does not change that until you have quit Mail, and then next relaunch it.

  • When I compose an E-mail my address book will not open when I click on TO or CC, but it does work on other computers and also if I use explorer.

    My address book will not show when I click on the TO or CC button, a mozilla page does open but there is no content. My E-mail accounts work fine on other computers. It also works fine on this computer if I use Explorer instead.

  • HT2486 the photos that I add to address book will only be there for a few seconds after I close the edit button. Either they go away completely or they a very small portion of the actual photo

    the photos that I add to address book will only be there for a few seconds after I close the edit button. Either they go away completely or they are very small portion of the actual photo

    Frank, thanks for your note.  I wrote "COMPLETED" because I had gone to a lot of effort to get the content of the book precisely as I wanted it. I would fully expect to see my level of effort and care matched by functional competence in Aperture 3 to render the book the way I created it.  Too much to ask?
    And yes, I upgraded the Aperture 2 Library first.  [Not ALL my tens of 000s of pix, because I use Lightroom selectively for photo editing. But Yes to the Aperture 2 Library.]  That step took a number of minutes, but seemed to work fine (no error messages of any kind).
    Then I opened the existing book project in Aperture 3, which followed some "magic-box" process that took a minute or so.  As I said, when that step was done, by all appearances the book was ready to submit for printing - until I examined the photos a little more closely.  You did see the blurry example I included, didn't you? That is what each and every photo looks like.
    Text-box content appears to have been rendered pertectly, for the record (including captions).
    So, ... is this result something you have heard of before?  Do you know of a one-step solution?  Or am I looking at an extended picture-by-picture fix?

  • HT2486 When I use my iPhone Siri for dialing, it is better to have the names in the address book listed singularly. But when I want to print envelopes from the address book in a formal manner - "Mr. & Mrs. Smith". Is there any way to have both options?

    When I use my iPhone Siri for dialing, it is better to have the names in the address book listed singularly. But when I want to print envelopes from the address book in a formal manner - "Mr. & Mrs. Smith". Is there any way to have both options?

    Only way I can figure is having double entries one with singular + some unique field, (maybe called Siri), then making a Smart group for one or both.

  • One of my 2 address books can no longer be viewed, how do I access it?

    ''locking this thread as duplicate, please continue at [https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1051908 /questions/1051908]''
    one of my 2 address books can no longer be viewed, how do I access it? It disappeared within the last few days. I can still find addresses that are in the 2nd address book, but I cannot view it, so only 1/8 of my addresses are now viewable. How do I access the 2nd address book?

    Hi ronc2, there isn't a specific setting for this. Firefox's built-in JavaScript settings allow you to control several aspects of scripts*, but unfortunately not this one.
    I previously tried to find some other options for individually turning off this event, but I couldn't find a way. Someone might be able to create an add-on to solve this problem, but it will take someone cleverer than I.
    Extensions that disable scripts on a site-specific basis:
    * If you regularly visit some sites which do this, you can block JavaScript on that specific site using the YesScript extension. Unfortunately, other script-based functionality will be blocked as well.
    * YesScript does not preemptively block scripts on every site. If you have to visit a lot of random sites and want to take a paranoid approach of having scripting blocked until you see as much of the site as you can see without running scripts, then the NoScript extension would be for you. But even then it's "all or nothing".
    ''* These include: JavaScript enabled yes/no, override right-click menu yes/no, change order of windows yes/no, move and resize windows yes/no, close windows yes/no, specific features of pop-up windows, change images yes/no, detect copy/cut/paste and modify selection yes/no.''

  • Old address book will not open in Snow Leopard

    After upgrading to SL, attempting to access AB in the dock brings up the message "This version of Address Book will not open in this operating system. You have Address Book version 4.1.2". Querying Apple Support brought suggestions from reinstalling just Address Book to utilizing Time Machine. Solution was incredibly simple.
    When upgrading to SL, the OS upgraded AB...but only in Applications. If you're getting this message, go to Applications and click on AB there. If it opens, just delete AB in the Dock, then transfer the new, updated AB to the dock, and you're all set.

    Somehow you've retained an old version of Addressbook (version 5.0.3).  The current version is 6.1
    Look in the apps folder to see if you have the current version, the dock icon may be pointing to the old version.

  • Address book will not sync with outlook

    I have a bb curve 8530. My desktop PC runs windows 7 and Outlook. The address book will not sync with outlook. The calendar function, however, will sync with outlook. The error messages are:
    "Runtime error: unable to locate application in system table. The product may not be installed properly; run the installer and choose repair."
    Or, "Intellisyncy error encountered 0x8004fff."
    or, "unable to complete synchronization."
    I have pulled out the battery of the 8530 to try a hard reset. I have reloaded on my PC the latest software from the BB website. I have reset and configured synchronization settings multiple times in every possible order. I have deleted from my outlook contacts any large files. I do not know what the installer the error message refers to.
    Thanks, David

    you cant reset your PIN, it is hardcoded into the BB
    where is your PIN missing?
    when it syncs the calendar, does it look like it syncs but nothing actually happens, no errors?
    or does it crash with an error?
    on your BB go to options- advanced options- default services
    make sure facebook is not set for CICAL

  • Address book will print 'famil' but not 'family'??

    I use Address Book to send out Christmas cards to our clients. When I print out the envelope I would like it to say for example 'Bill Jones and family', but I do not want 'and family' to show in the address book window, so I cannot use the suffix field. When I type 'famil' in the 'father' template field it prints as 'Bill Jones and famil', however when I type 'family' it ignores the field and will print as Bill Jones only. This goes for daughter, spouse, brother, etc. I have tried adding a space before or after 'family' but there is no fooling Address Book. Any ideas?

    BTW Address Book will print fomily, fimily and famili, just not family in the spouse/parent field. This is the weirdest thing I have ever seen! It makes no difference if I use capitals, and it will print family as a name or an address.

    This is copied from your first post. Am I reading this wrong? Aren't you saying that you are getting a message that the username and password are incorrect? That's why I asked another the word apple in the name. I don't use Yahoo mail that may in fact be correct but I'm just checking,
    IF you are getting a message that the username and password are incorrect.....
    Check the outgoing mail server setting. Make sure that your username and password are in there.

    Why does Lion KEEP reversing changes you make in address book and other applications without your consent and without wanting it to??? Plus address book will NOT import old address book contacts from Snow Lepoard 10.6 and keep them.  This Lion OXS 7 is .. becoming very frustrating ... it will NOT keep changes made in the Address Book and it has destroyed my contacts which I only have electronically since 10.4 in my address book. I am NOT happy with this OS7 it has a lot of issues and faults.  How can one stop automatic reversing of data when inputting???
    Please help! 
    Wished I NEVER upgraded to this Lion!!!

    Relax. Your address book database is corrupted.
    If you are syncing your Contacts with MobileMe or something else, disable it for now.
    Backup your address book by going to File>Export>Address Book Archive.
    Quit Address Book.
    Open your Library by holding down the Option (alt) key while selecting the Go menu in Finder. Select Library. Navigate into your Application Support/AddressBook folder and delete the addressbook-v22.abcddb file.
    Open Address Book. It will recreate the database from the raw data.
    See how that works. If it is ok, then reenable syncing and see how that works.

  • My address book will not synch with iCloud or iPhone 4

    Since upgrading to lion, my address book will not synch with icloud or my iphone 4.  Any idea what I should do?

    I can't figure out what's going on.  Been working on this all day.  Yes, all the preferences are checked off and I've triple checked everything.  The truth is, after many experiments, I think the problem has to do with how address book is communicating with my contact list.  I use quickbooks 2012 for mac.  It has all of my customers and vendors synched with my address book on my mac.  If I add a customer in quickbooks it shows up in address book on my mac.  But it doesn't show up in Icloud or on my Iphone.  If I manually add a customer to my Iphone it synchs fine with Icloud and my address book.  It seems that the only time devices can't communicate is when I add a contact in quickbooks.  No matter what I do, I can't get the new contact from quickbooks to icloud or my iphone.  It looks like those programs/devices completely ignore the new contact in address book that was created in quickbooks.  I realize you probably can't help me here but if you have any ideas let me know.

  • Just upgraded my OS10.4 to snow lepard  and now itunes will not open. I hope to further upgrade to Lion. Ps my address book will not open either!

    operate or open, also my address book will not open. Am hoping to upgraded further to lion asap.

    Office 2011 will install in a separate folder. But do not install Office 2011 until you remove Office 2004. It comes with its own uninstalled located in the MS Office folder. Only use the uninstaller to get rid of it. Then install Office 2011.
    Office 2004 and Other Applications Don't Work in Lion/Mountain Lion
    If you have Office 2004 which is a PPC-only suite, it will not work in Lion/Mountain Lion. You need to upgrade to Office 2011 - Mactopia - or you can try the freeware suite, Libre Office, that is functionally similar to Office 2007 for Windows except it works on Lion/Mountain Lion.
    You may want to consider as well:
    These two suites are similar to Libre Office but not as current or as well-supported:
    NeoOffice
    Open Office
    And, then there is Apple's iWork suite:
    Pages - word processing and layout
    Keynote - presentation
    Numbers - spreadsheet
    Each can open and save Office compatible files. They may be purchased separately via the Mac App Store for $19.99 each.
    As for other software, any PPC-based software will not run in Lion or Mountain Lion because Rosetta is no longer part of OS X. You will need to upgrade to Intel versions of the software.
    (Access to the Mac App Store requires Snow Leopard 10.6.6 or higher and an Apple ID.)
