I have two entries that appear identical to each other. One is in the iCloud address book. The other is On My Mac.

I have opened up both entries, but I can't tell which is which.

Is there a way to discern this?


I have been opening both entries and editing one to see which is which. I'm hoping for a better solution than this.

Show Groups

The Show Groups option displays a list of groups on the left. This isn't what I am looking for. Ideally, if opening up a contacts card will show you a list of groups to which that card belongs.

  • Make a simple change to one of them and see where the change propagates to. – IconDaemon Dec 11 '18 at 15:35
  • Yes. Sorry, that's what I've been doing. I'm looking for a visual indication built into the app itself. Thanks. Updating the question to reflect this. – Anthony C Dec 12 '18 at 16:53

I'm not sure if this is obvious, but in the Contacts App, Click on View->Show Groups. Then you can select the contact in either group?

  • Yes, I already have Show Groups on. That just turns on the groups column on the left. – Anthony C Dec 13 '18 at 0:57
