mac address book to pdf

long story short, I needed to export my mac address book into something I can open and read (not .abbu or .csv). I couldn’t find exactly what I needed online.

so I figured out my own “hack” and I’m posting it here.

if you have PDF as one of your print options (usually bottom left of the print window), use that. if not, then you might need to add a PDF printer as one of your print options.

go to Address Book, All Contacts, select all, “Print…”
then choose
Style: Lists
Paper Size: Tabloid
Orientation: Landscape
Attributes: (check all)
Font Size: Regular

hit the PDF button bottom left of your print window and Save as PDF.

once it’s a pdf, depending on which version of adobe you have, you can then “Save as” and convert it to rich text or whatever.
