Merge contacts in OS X Contacts app
Authored by: j-beda on Jan 03, '13 12:57:58PM

In Mac OS X 10.6.8 under the Address Book.app "Card" menu item, the third selection is "Merge Selected Cards", with a keyboard shortcut of shift-command-| (which is above the "\" key on NAmerican keyboards)

Merge contacts in OS X Contacts app
Authored by: RogParish on Jan 04, '13 08:52:11PM

The first time I tried "Merge Duplicates", the menu entry changed to "Link Selected Entries", with the same keyboard shortcut. It has yet to change back to "Merge Selected Duplicates". And it didn't merge them, either! This app is so totally FUBAR'd!

Different servers?
Authored by: SeanAhern on Jan 08, '13 05:45:42PM

I expect the difference lies in the servers that the contacts live on. You should not be able to merge contacts that live on two different servers (iCloud and Google, for instance). They can only be linked. You should be able to merge two contacts that live on the same server.
