Gnome Contacts - How to export to vcard?

Postby kcbagr » 2018-05-10 12:05

I opened the Contacts app and added a contact. How do I backup my Contacts?

I found this link that says to use File > Save Address Book As vCard. But there is no "File" menu: https://help.gnome.org/users/evolution/ ... ts.html.en

How does one export one's contacts to back it up?

I'm using Debian Stretch with Gnome Contacts 3.22.1

Start Evolution, switch to its contacts section and look for the "Save Address Book As vCard" in the File menu.

Gnome-Contacts (I saw that for the 1st time today because of your question) seems to be a totally different thing than Evolution's contacts section..

The problem is that I just want to use the Address Book of evolution. Is there a way to open it and just use it as an Address Book? Or must I configure my email even though I only intend to use its Address Book?
