Address Book Smart Group Problem in Lion
I have upgraded to Lion Address Book 6.1
I have a problem with a "Smart Group" not working.
I have created a Smart Group I call "Non-Group" by selecting:
Card = is not a member of = any group
I use this Smart Group to determine if I have not classified a contact in the 8 groups I have created.
This worked fine in Snow Leopard.
Now in Lion Address Book 6.1 it is not working?
I have tested adding contacts, but not adding them to a group.
The ungrouped contacts do not show up in my "Non-Group" Smart List.
Or is this a bug?

Yep. The new Address Book sucks. I have purchased Addresses in the App Store to get the 3 pane view.
And also use BusyCal to replace the awful Calendar.
I am sorry I upgraded to Lion.

There is definitely a bug in the Lion Address book.
Solution 1: A free iPhone app called PowerContact Lite won't create groups, but it easily and correctly identifies contacts without groups and places contacts within groups.
Solution 2: On the Mac, redefine "isn't a member of any group" by "isn't a member of Group A" and "isn't a member of Group B" and "isn't a member of Group C" etc. all the way through all your groups. What's left, isn't a member of any group.
