I have assigned categories to all my contacts, but now would like to rename one of the categories. I like to avoid doing this manually for each contact (creating a new category, reassigning each contact, deleting the old category). I can't find any "rename" options in the category master list or anywhere else. Can I rename a category in one sweep for all contacts who have been assigned this category?
