Batch append data to the Notes field on Address Book cards
Authored by: robleach on Mar 22, '10 07:57:19AM

I reported a bug to Apple shortly after submitting this hint. I discovered that if you set a rule in the smart group to "Card contains 'search string'", it doesn't always find all the cards with that string. "Note contains 'search string'" does appear to work in all cases. If you have "Card contains 'search string'", I discovered that if you manually edit *any* field of a card that the smart group missed, it will notice the string and add the card to the smart group. "Note contains 'search string'" will always work however, no manual editing required. This is just one of the bugs in Address Book smart groups that I've noticed. I've seen others but haven't been able to figure out the behavior.
