[kdepim-users] Kaddressbook in KDE4.4

In a newly installed installation of KDE4.4 (in openSuSE v11.3) I am 
confused about the Kaddressbook GUI. What I see is a single large window 
containing three columns, for 1) Name of address book, 2) Name of contact, 
and 3) apparently photo ID. I do not see any way to replace this view with 
the one with which I am familiar in previous KDE releases. If someone can 
point out what I have to do to achieve the more useful appearance of even 
KDE v4.3.5, I would be very grateful.

I populated Kaddressbook by exporting from a KDE3 installation on another 
partition. Not all the content survived the operation, but only Name and 
email address (e.g., no postal address), although I am not aware of 
limiting the kinds of information to be exported/imported.

The simple interface I have described seems even to lack a section for 
Notes, which I made use of in the KDE3 case. Is this view the only one of 
which the current release is capable?
