Here we go.
Step 1: Get your list together. You almost certainly want to print labels for a group of people, not for just one and not for all of them. So, it time to make a Group. Here a picture.
One way to make a group is to click where the blue arrow is pointing. That gives you an empty untitled group, so you rename it (easy) and then coque iphone 7 black you click on Contacts and one by one drag cards into moschino coque iphone 6 plus your group. That second part is not so easy it a lot of dragging. Far easier: start in the Contacts group, then click on ONE person that will be part of your group. Then, hold the Command key, and click on the rest of the people who belong in the group. images coque iphone 6 Then, go to the File menu, and choose Group from Selection. It does exactly what the name suggests. Rename the group (double click on its name) and you are ready for Step 2.
Step 2: Be sure that the addresses in your group are labeled properly. The Home address should have a label next to it, for example. If the label is wrong click the Edit button and fix it. You be glad of this later.
Step 3: Click on the name of the group, then go coque iphone 6 4.7 to File and Print. It is very important that you click on the name of the group. Otherwise, when you go to print, you won be able to print labels for the whole group. Everyone forgets to do it once in a while, even when he knows better.
The Print box looks something like this. First, be sure the Style pop up (middle right) is set to Labels. Next click the button just below that. That where you get to choose the the type of label you be coque huawei p30 using. BIG HINT: use an Avery brand label. The Address Book is coque iphone 6 plus luxewood ready for any of more than 100 Avery sizes. Here, I using Avery 5161 coque huawei pro (2 across, ten down a little more than coque iphone 5s warhammer a penny apiece).
Step 4: Now click on the Label button.
This is where you get to specify what gets printed. Notice the coque iphone 6 fortnite menu. By default, it says You might think that means a label for all of the people in the list. What it really means is a label for every address in the list. So, if a person has a coque iphone 5s 1€ home and a work address, you get two for that person. Unless the people in your group have only one address each the option is not what you want.
When you click on the pop up you see something like this (I say coque personnalisees samsung because you probably don have a Texas category, nor a Mailing category those are custom, beyond the scope of this article). The way this list works is, if you choose you print only the Home addresses. If coque huawei p8 coque iphone 6 plus rechargeable you choose you only print the Work addresses.
The wild card is the List option. This can be a handy thing but no one knows how it works. It worth finding out so read on!
A Distribution List lets you print a Work address for some of the people, and a Home address for others, and an address for still others, all in one group, all in one shot. It is a lot better than intentionally mis labeling someone Work address as just because the rest of the addresses in the group are Home addresses. So, cancel out of the Print box and choose Edit Distribution List from the Edit menu. Here how it coque iphone 6s flocon looks.
The problem with this box is we interested in mailing addresses, and they showing us email addresses instead. That OK. coque iphone 7 plus personnalisable Just click and change it to Address.
All you do is click on the address you want to print, when you print this particular contact in this particular group. The address turns bold to indicate you chosen it (see above). You can manage ALL of the Distribution Lists right here in one box just click on a group, and then work your way down the list of addresses at the right, clicking once on the address you want to use for each person. Important Note: it is perfectly OK to choose to print Joe Smith home address when you printing from a Friends group, and to print Joe Smith work address when you printing from your Prospects group. Apple Address Book lets you use a different address for each person on a group by group basis. The Address Book remembers what you chosen for each group so you don have to do the work twice.
In practice it is pretty hard to remember which address you chosen for each person in each group, so you may go back to this Distribution List box a lot. Once you get it right, you can choose that List option in the Print box, to great advantage. Without the Distribution List there no way to coque iphone 6s a rabat print some home addresses and some work addresses and some addresses from the same group, all in one shot. So get coque iphone 6s psg noir to know the Distribution List and save yourself a ton of time and trouble.
There a lot to the Address Book but none of it is very hard. There just a lot. Take it step by step and you be fine. In case you wondering, this is about ten zillion times easier than doing it in Word with one of their templates. Don even bother.
