Question Disabled features in Evolution Contact Editor

When I create a contact in Evolution Contacts, the following fields are "greyed-out" and I am not permitted to enter any information in these fields:
- Nickname
- Categories
- File Under
- Personal Information Tab (all the stuff here)

Do I need to enable a feature or something? I have checked the Evolution documentation, but cannot identify a reason. I also checked the plug-ins, and everything is checked there. I am stumped.

Lightbulb Problem Identified

The issue is with the Calendar Type. I created my calendar with Type=Google, and the referenced features are disabled when Google=Type.

I guess this is a trade-off; if I want the IMAP/synchronization features with Google, I have to give up having these features enabled.

Many thanks for your quick response.
