Can't delete or rename contact groups - any software to do that?


this keeps being an issue:

Do you know of any CardDAV app that uses the same group type and might serve as a workaround in order to rename or delete groups?


A general function to delete a group doesn’t exist yet. Open each of the contacts currently assigned to the wrong group and assign it to a different group. Once all contacts habe been assigned to a different group the original one shouldn’t be displayed anymore.

Thanks for the hint.

I tried it by adding a contact to the group and then removing it, the group still shows up.

Two of the groups are empty and still there:


To answer my own question: the thunderbird extension Cardbook is able to rename and delete those groups.
They’re named categories instead of groups, I guess that’s a bit more precise…
