Chapter 16. Address Book > Export an Address or a Group of Addresses

Export an Address or a Group of Addresses

You can export a single address, a collection of selected addresses, or a Group. Once exported, other Address Book users can import the addresses into their applications. There are several simple ways to export:

  • Drag a Group, a name, or a collection of names from the Address Book and drop them on the Desktop or inside any Finder window. It will make vCard icons like the ones shown below.

    Drag a selection of cards to the Desktop and the Mac creates a vCard.

    Drag a Group to the Desktop and the Mac creates a vCard. You'll have to rename it.

  • Option-drag a Group name and you'll get a separate vCard for each person in the Group. They all land one on top of the other so it looks like just one card—you have to drag the cards off of each other.

  • Select the Group, a name, or a collection of names in the Address Book. From the File menu, choose “Export card…” or “Export Group card….” You will be asked to name the exported vCard and where you want to save it. An icon like the ones shown above appears in the location where you chose to save it.
