Comment 40 for bug 235101

The ability to copy the total contents of an address card in one operation is TOTALLY essential.
This is particularly so because it is impossible to highlight the address card name in one list, then copy it to the clipboard and add the address card to another list

A much more sensible solution would be to allow the link to an address card to be used in 1 or more lists to enable that card to be used by all the selected lists.
Currently a new card has to be opened in each list and the required contents have to be tediously filled in. This causes not only much frustration but also errors and omissions.
The result is that the several cards (in different lists) my not contain the same data. Indeed some may contain out of date phone numbers or email addresses.
