When adding a new contact, is it possible to always show the “Name Details” fields?
No, this is not possible. As usual on other devices, the simplified variant is used by default and the more detailed variant can be used optionally.
All my (existing) contacts have display names like “Joe Doe” and sort as “Doe, Joe”. As usual with other desktop applications, I might add.
When adding a contact via NC, I either can enter “Joe Doe”, which gets sorted as “Joe Doe”, or “Doe, Joe”, which gets displayed as “Doe, Joe”. And I’m not even mentioning names like “Arthur C. Clarke” and “John van Halen”.
So if I need to switch to the more detailed variant for the vast majority of names, I’d rather have it by default.
Something similar to the calendar app setting “[ ] Skip simple event editor”.
