Hiding specific contacts.

DELETED.
I can handle what I want under Contact Display Filtering in Global Settings.

It is only used to configure those contacts to be displayed at startup DWC.

(1) On PC Chrome I maintain a single set of contacts which is sync'd to two phones. On phone A I want to see all contacts, on phone B only a subset. I have managed to get that working using Contact Display Filtering (CDF). However, that was only possible because all my contacts were sorted into groups, CDF does not allow for selecting specific contacts for display. It works for me so I'm happy.

(2) During my tests on this feature I also noticed that the Group setting... Show System Groups ...if un-ticked suppresses display of a group called Friends. What groups are defined as System Groups? Obviously Friends, but any others?

(3) When the contacts in a Group are displayed the tab bar shows Organisations and Titles. Since I use neither of these could you add an option to configure this tab bar. Simply to remove Organisations/Titles would suffice for me, but maybe there are other tabs could be added, like Toolbox for example.

System Groups Usually contains: Coworkers, Family, Friends, My Contacts. They are pre-defined, different devices may differ.

The Tab Setting, Activate & Sort, has no influence on that particular display. Despite having Organisations/Titles un-ticked they still appear on that particular display. OK on all others, but not that one.

OK, in the Groups display select a group, when the Contacts in that Group are displayed the tab bar at the bottom shows Organisations and Titles tabs. I go into the Tab Setting, Activate & Sort, and Organisation and Title tabs are set OFF (not ticked). However, in the display of Group Contacts those tabs still show, they are not turned off by the Activate & Sort setting. This setting works on all other displays, but not on the Group Contacts display.

Understand. Now it is only valid for the startup screen. Modify it important?

Important? I would call it useful, for me, to have this setting apply to the Group Contacts screen. I would like to put some other tabs there instead of Organisation/Titles.

There's Organisation / Titles and home Organisation / Titles function is different. It just shows included in the current group of Organisation / Titles. If we use the same settings are bad.
