Forum Question: Is There a Way To Change the Lion Address Book To the Snow Leopard Version?

Is there a way in Lion where I can get back the Addressbook as it was in Snowleopard or change the view of the Lion Addressbook that I can see all 3 columns in one view?
Thank you in advance.

    So the problem is that you want to see Groups, the list of names in the selected Group, and the contact info for the selected name all at the same time?
    I’m not aware of any setting in Lion address book that will get you all three at once.

      The new look of the address book in Lion is not as user friendly and does not, in my opinion look as good as Snow Leopard. Is there a way to change it back to the old and keep Lion?

        No. No way to go back. What about it, specifically, don’t you like?

          Let’s start with ‘everything’ and work down from there?

            It seems like Contacts (MLion) is about 90% the same as Address Book (SL) so you must have something more specific in mind.

    Hi Gary

    Yes, thats what I would like to see. I also did not find anything in the settings. I hoped maybe there is a way in Automater, Terminal or Keyboard Maestro.

    It is not a big problem, but uncomfortable. Now when I add an address I have to go back- and forward.

    Perhaps there is a way to open two windows of Address Book at the same time, and have them side by side, giving you the option of three or four column view. If you can see the contact details, then you’ll know which one to drag to a new group. If changes in one are reflected in the other, then I would love to know how to do this, at least until the new Mountain Lion comes out and they fix this.
