Contacts- specify which account to use?

Is there any way to tell Contacts which account to use?

When my Google account was set as my default account in Contacts, querying groups returned my iCloud groups. Oddly, when creating a contact or a group, it would then put them in the default account- Google. This makes no sense.

I saw one example on a previous post where someone was using /usr/libexe/PlistBuddy to manipulate Address Book’s settings to change the default account? Is this still the only way to specify which account new people & groups will be created in?

The Help available in 10.13.6 states:

Si vous utilisez plus d’un compte dans Contacts, de nouveaux contacts sont ajoutés au compte par défaut.
Pour changer de compte par défaut, choisissez Contacts > Préférences, cliquez sur Général, puis sur le menu
local Compte par défaut et choisissez un compte.

Alas, there is no such menu so I am afraid that, at least in 10.13.6, there is no other way than the described one.
