Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Unfortunately the address is always copied in the English format:

Johann Doe
Anystreet 72
Berlin, 23408

The German address format is:

Johann Doe
Anystreet 72
23408 Berlin

Any chance to implement custom formats?

Yes

Version 1.4 should provide localized address label formats.

Option to copy all available data? Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Thanks for the add-on. Any chance of a context menu option to copy all *available* data for the contact?
I have TB 3.0.4, which has that option when you right click on a contact in the address book list, but what is copied includes empty fields and their description, which take ages to edit out.

Re: Option to copy all available data?

Thanks. Using regular mouse select, cut and paste - which this extension also enables - should satisfy most of your needs. It will not copy any text for empty fields. I also suspect you are using the "More Functions for AddressBook" extension which is clouding the issue a bit.

Fantastic copy/paste function Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It's fantastic help. Great job! I do not understand why this feature is not supported at the first place.
Thanks a lot!

Just thought of another suggestion :)

When copying addresses, it would be nice to have the ability to appended the name of the person before the address. At the moment to get a full address I have to copy the name from the Contact area and the address from the Home or Work area.

I have to agree with HGaservqe and Dr3Bob, this should be a standard feature! However, the add-in does work as advertised and can be very useful.
The only problem I have is that the copied addresses contain blank lines for empty fields while the card omits them.

New version submitted

Hi, I submitted a new version that works with TB3. It's waiting in the approval queue.

Getting it to work Rated 3 out of 5 stars

You can select (highlight) all or portions of the text in the card by sweeping the mouse. But-right clicking the text does not get you a drop down menu with a "Copy" option. Maybe this is why some reviewers think it does not work. You CAN do a Ctrl-C to copy the highlighted text to the scratchpad.

I would rate the add-on as 4-star if it had a drop-down menu with "Copy".
I would give it 5 stars if I could select the text right from the main panel of the address book and could right-click to a "Copy" drop down menu.

But, even as it is Select Address is a worthwhile addition. Many thanks to the author.

Right-clicking

I agree, it would be nice to have a right-click context menu, but I'm not skilled enough to do this.

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Unfortunately I haven't found this very useful. While you can copy all the contact details in one go, they get pasted so jumbled up that they are almost unreadable. To be able to copy one field at a time isn't a great advantage over opening the properties and doing the same thing.

I assume that this feature was an oversight from the main developers!

Thanks!!

Address Book Text Rated 2 out of 5 stars

I think the copy function is when the text is highlighted in the "Card Summary Pane" (View-Card Summary Pane checked).

This is at the bottom right side of the Address Book. Text can be highlighted and copied from there.

Line Breaks Not Preserved Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thanks for creating this add-on. This should be a standard feature IMHO.
I tried it but when the text on the right hand side of the address card is copied the line breaks are not preserved when you paste the text. The text on the left side seems to be OK.

Solved Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I have found that if you type the contact name in the search box, this is highlighted and is what is copied.

So make sure to click in the address book window to deselect the highlighted name first

Great plugin but the fact I have to download this is dreadful. Why write the addressbook display code to DELIBERATELY make the text unselectable? What possible benefit does that bring to the user?

Madness.

Very useful! If you enter a search string in your adress book you should not forget to click on the desired entry in the search result list. Otherwise you can not copy the selected data.

Thanks! Regarding click-to-select, this appears to be the generic behavior of the Address book. For example, the "Delete" and "Properties" buttons behave the same way.

Works for me, I have been waiting a long time for a feature like this. Thanks very much.
