When I am in the tag list, right click on a tag, there is the menu entry for linking the tag to an addressbook entry. There a to problems with this: First, I can not pass the menu entry, if want to get further down for another menu entry, because, when I get on that entry, my screen is flooded with all my contacts in the addressbook so the right click menu is hidden. The second problem is the point itself. I have a lot of contact, they are not all shown on the screen an there seems no way to pass further then the contacts shown on the screen. In general I think this way of doing this is rather not very usable. I would suggest to use the same way kopete allows to connect to an addressbook windows, that is really easy and usable
Hey, I fully agree, I have the same problem that I have more contacts than can be displayed in the menu! It is a great feature, but a menu is not suitable for this, some other window (with pictures form addressbook maybe) would be wonderful!
As suggested Kopete has a menu which does exactly this. I have also seen it in another KDE-programme, but can not remember. So it may be easy to copy the code.
This bug is still in kde 3.5.9. A simple solution would be to use the same kind of menu used in, say, kicker folder menus.

To solve this problem, we need to use adressbook dialog from Konversation...
Closing some old bugreports that are related to old digiKam version, and that have not received answers for two years now.
If you think the reports are still valid, feel free to re-open them, but please provide updates and do not just open them without giving feedback.
The problem still exists in KDE 4.5.1 (Digikam 1.3.0) in exact the same way as described above.

No problem anymore, cause it does not work ;-) Is the feature disabled or should I file another bugreport?
Version: Digikam 2.4.1, however it never worked the last half year
Distro: openSUSE 12.1
Addressbook: Populated with Google Contacts and Facebook Contacts
KDE adress-book support in digiKAm is optional. you need to install kdepimlibs and recompile digiKam. Look in README file for details.
If it's optional, and not enabled (I guess, cause it don't work at my install) why is there the menu-entry?
Hi, I have installed kdepimlibs 4.7.4 and digikam 2.5.0 on my gentoo system. Address book search in kmail and kopete does work properly, addressbook support compiled for digikam. If I select "Create Tag from Address Book" the submenue is empty. I think this is because of the use of
which is not used anymore in favor of akonadi. There was a similar thing going on with kmail
but I'm not quite sure how to do this for digikam.
I fixed this entry with this commit. KDEPimLibs now work again with digiKam...
But KDEPimLibs dependency must be replaced by AKonadi in the future...
