OS X V10.7 Lion :: Can't Drag And Drop From Address Book To Mail

Feb 3, 2012

I have always used Address Book to store my email contact information in SL. When I wanted to send an email, I would drag and drop from Address Book to the "To:" field in Mail and it would add the contact information to Mail. I upgraded to Lion, and now when I try this, the address icon moves like it should, the little green circle with the + in it appears when I hover over the field, but when I release it does not add the address to Mail. The drag and drop does not work at all, but it looks like it should. I have searched all around but have not found any information about this.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Mail Not Integrated To Address Book?

Apr 2, 2012

My Mail and Address Book do not appear to be talking very well. Out of the box, the mail application does not appear to let me select recipients from the Address Book when composing a message.  I added the "Address Book" button to the toolbar for composing a message. I can click this and bring up the address book, but there is still seemingly no way to select recipients from the Address Book. 

I read somewhere that the "auto complete" function is supposed to reach out to Address Book when entering recipients' names in the "To" line. This is not working.  I found some suggestions to go and delete a file in the Library that governs this function. I did that, but it has not worked. 

What am I missing?  Why is it so difficult to select people from your address book and send them an email from the Mail application?  Is something broken here or is this a reality for this Mac?  My wife is ready to kill me for throwing out her beloved PC.

Feb 11, 2012

Anyone can help? I bought a Macbook pro last weekend,but when I try to use the mac mail,I cannot find any way to input an email address.  

1、update my gmail contacts to the macbook addressbook

2、Synchronize the local addressbook to icloud

3、Open the mac mail,and  then create a new mail

then comes my problem,no matter what I type , the address has never show. As I know , the correct result should be:1、Just need to type a few main words in the "sent to" column ,os will search the local addressbook and show the corresponding address for user to choose.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Mail + Address Book - Groups Not Working?

Apr 17, 2012

I'm able to create groups just fine in Address book. However when it comes to using them in Mail, they won't work: I type the first couple of characters and Mail offers to auto-complete, so it does know about them. When I hit return at that point *nothing* appears in the address field, it just stays blank.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Mail Fails To Recognize Names From Address Book?

Jun 18, 2012

If someone has me in their address book as Doe John and sends an email to me at my email address (johndoe@mail.com), Mail.app does not recognize me and asks me if I want to 'Add to Address Book'. The same happens if a sender has a minor change in the Name (such as even a dot in the name) of any recipient, regardless of the fact that I have the correct name in the address book. Mail fails to recognize the recipient even though the email address is identical, and will ask me if I want to 'Add to Address Book'. One would expect Mail to use just the email address and recognize the contact as already being in the Address Book.  

1. Mail can't recognize my contact email address

2. Address Book editing

3. Mail doesn't show names from the Address Book

I know it's kind of silly, but is it possible to use Apple Mail's icon and sort of drag'n'drop it to use it on Entourage? I prefer Entourage as my email app, but find Apple Mail's ICON nicer, so would it be possible for my Entourage to use Apple Mail's icon in the dock?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Mountain Update And Free Apps (Address Book, Mail, ICal)?

If I upgrade Snow Leopard to Mountain Lion (on a 2009 MacBook 5.2), is the update limited to OS X or can I also expect to see upgrades to free apps like Address Book, Mail and iCal?  If the free apps do not change to match the latest versions available, can I expect updates to the free apps soon?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Can't Drag And Drop On Desktop

Jun 14, 2012

Yesterday I found that I can't drag and drop any files on my desktop. I get the white circle with a line through it when I try to drag anything. I can drag off of my desktop to my HD and to the trash but I can't drag anything back. I've read all of the previous threads about it and have tried all of the poetntail fixes including:  Creating a new user account and switching back and forth

Sleep / Wake

Relaunching Finder

Checking the Dragging option in Universal Access

Checking all of my settings in preferences

(I don't have Air Display, Airparrot or any of the other listed problematic 3rd party programs)I even reinstalled Lion and the problem still exists?

Laptops :: Apple Mail System Address Book Vs The Dock Address Bookk

Nov 21, 2010

Using a G4 IBOOK with OS 10.5.8. Recently converted IBOOK from just my wifes computer to both of us so it is now dual usuage with both of us signing in to our respective files/e-mail, etc. My side has a problem never experienced before. My apple mail system address book has all the names the dock address book does but is missing almost 2/3rd of the actual e-mail addressess. I have tried to redo the dock address book in hopes it would change the "internal" mail book, but to no avail. It id difficult to add a recipient to an outgoing e-mail via the dock address instead of the apple mail address book.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: There Was A Change In Desktop Drag And Drop Post Update

May 14, 2012

It is odd: pre update (the latest) I could download to my literal desktop, or drag and drop a photo from iPhoto, an mp3 to mail later from iTunes.....Now I can only do that from within the finder in the "desktop" window. In other words: If I download (I prefer to download onto my desktop rather than the download folder-window. I want to have control over ny desktop again (rather than the folder-window entitled "desktop".

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Cannot Drag And Drop Photos From Internet To Desktop After Reinstall

May 29, 2012

My Macbookpro was giving me a startup disk full message so I emptied out my photo library and itunes library to an external drive. By then I think the damage was done because I was still encountering the spinning color wheel all the time. On the advice of he Genius bar I reinstalled Lion. It worked well except for this one glitch. I can no longer drag and drop photos from the internet.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Cannot Drag/drop Or Copy/paste On Ubuntu (Parallel Desktop 7)?

Mar 21, 2012

I have two Virtual Machines running on my MacbookPro. One is Windows and the other is Ubuntu. The Windows 7 system is running perfectly well but the Ubuntu VM has got issues with dragging/dropping files from Mac to Ubuntu and vice versa.When I checked on the Parallel Desktop's forum, the only solution provided was that the Parallel Desktop's tool should be uninstalled and reinstalled; which I have done. But that didn't solve the problem. The Configuration menu "Virtual Machine" offered checkboxes for the (Copy & Paste) section, and I can confirm that both boxes for 'Share Mac Cipboard' and 'Preserve Text Formatting' are checked. That should have solved the copy/paste problem but didn't.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Address Book - Address Editing For Group Members?

May 20, 2012

how to specify which of several email addresses should be used for a member of a group.  It starts by selecting the menu item "Edit > Edit Distribution List."  From there it explains how to select the desired address for a specific person.  All well and good... 


Try as I might, doing various combinations of name or group selections in the address book window, I cannot seem to get the "Edit Distributuion List" item to be un-greyed.  Effectively, the program is not allowing me to do the edit function I need to do on this one group member. 

Am I missing the secret handshake in this process?  Why should it be this hard to do this simple function? 

Which raises the larger question of "What did Apple do to the Address Book application in general?"  This issue is only the tip of my iceberg.  The whole app seems to be harder to use than before.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Why Address Book Add New Phone / Email Address As Other

Mar 20, 2012

I must be missing something very obvious, but I can't seem to set Address Book to add all new contact info as "Work" entries.I have to edit every new entry and change all the fields from "other" to "work." This appears to happen when I "grab" phone or email info from an email message.

OS X :: Why Are Mail And Address Book Nameless

May 10, 2009

We've got iCal, Safari, Photo Booth, iTunes, etc.

But why are "Address Book", and "Mail" essentially nameless? It seems a bit odd.

If it weren't for the old laptop, "iBook" would be a perfect name for Address Book.

OS X :: Upgrade Broke Mail & Address Book

Jun 10, 2009

In going from Tiger to Leopard, I backed up my HD to an external, but I apparently didn't do it correctly because Migration Assistant acted like the files were not there. So, I manually copied my files over along with select apps & preferences files.I got everything (Firefox, Thunderbird, etc) working exactly how I left them in Tiger. But, I messed up my Address Book and Mail. Now when I try to use them it says "You cannot use this version of the application [app name] with this version of Mac OS X.Is there a way to just reinstall these two apps without starting over with a fresh install?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Disable The Finder Drag & Drop "flock" Animation?

Mar 25, 2012

this is a new feature in Lion, as stated here:[URL] Drag filesWhen you drag multiple files from one location to another, they flock together. An indicator also appears next to the cursor, telling you how many files you’re moving  

Is there a way to disable that? Im on 2.8GHz Intel Core i7 iMac with 8GB of ram, and the seemingly small animation is driving me nuts.

I do a lot of dragging and dropping of groups of files onto scripts - photoshop scripts. and when i do that, you have to wait for the half a second or so for the little animation to happen.
