Version: unspecified (using KDE 4.7.0)
in previous versions we had the possibility to merge contacts
this is important to be able to merge contacts created by filters (add missing contacts to address book)
Steps to Reproduce:
missing entry "Merge"
OS: Linux (x86_64) release 188.8.131.52-0.5-desktop
I own an addressbook with more than thousand entries, most of them
double up to five-times (due tu import from several generations of
mobile phones), some with few or more different detail entries.
First, easiest (?): Mark two or more kontacts, choose "merge",

Sorry, wrong keys pressed .. I continue:
- in case the entries are identical, merge silently
- in case there are different details: show all details (with field name)
and (pre-chosen) radiobuttons to chose, which entries are to be merged.
(may be, the text field should be editable for manually changes)
grafically, either the "or"-set of different entries should displayed
or the two or more verstions side by side (with repeated details grey..)
Second, more complex:
- search the whole corpus for possible duplicates (narrow or wide searches
- for each possible duplicate/set of similar entries show both/all entries
for the first decision to be done by the user, if they belong to the same
person (contact) i.e. they should be merged
- for all contacts to be merged proceed like in the "simple" case.
Thanks to all working on addressbook / PIM ! :-)
