I would like to change all my tasks & contacts that are in a particular

category to a new category. I know how to create a new master category & I

know how to view everything by category & then drag the old to the new.

What I can't figure out is an easy way to delete the old category in each of

the tasks & contacts, even though it doesn't exist in the master category.

Can anyone suggest a way...other than opening each contact & task & manually

deleting the old category?

Thanks in advance,

Phil

That's very easy with Category Manager, for the download see the link in my

signature.

From the new toolbar, click the first button, then File/Select Folder, and

open the concerned folders. In that view, if you right click items and drag

them to another category, you can decide whether to copy or move the items.

Best regards

group by category, select the items in the category and right click,

categories, remove the wrong one...

Select all the entries you wish to recategorise, then right-click the

selection and choose Categories. Make your changes.
