What parts don't you like?

I'd like to be able to assign colorless categories (not White, but colorless
so I can use automatic formatting) and edit the category list easier. I'm
not holding my breath though.

I have 776 entries in my address book, carefully categorised over the past
10-15 years. My world is disintegrating about my ears as the categories
vanish every time I click on one.

I get these gimmick colours instead. I have no interest at all in colours.
I want my categories back please. How?

Uprgade to Color Categories? Also, you may find this helpful:
