Importing contacts from MS Outlook

Importing contacts from MS outlook seems to work, but they do not show up in any of the contacts folders but need to be opened via “extras/settings” in the menu bar. This does not allow for easy use and/or search in contacts. Is there way to avoid this inconvenience and to have direct access to the folder where the imported contacts are stored?

I presume you imported the contacts in the Local folders. In that case please open Tools - Settings - General and tick “Show local folders” Hope it helps.
