Your Address Book has two different kinds of views: List View and Card View. “List View” is when the information that you filled in about each contact (first and last name, company, phone, email, etc.) will be listed horizontally in rows. Each information field will be listed in columns with a gray label at the top of the column that identifies what kind of information it is. You may even need to use the scroll bar at the bottom of your screen to see the rest of the information fields.

Using the “Customize” screen for your Address Book, you have the option of choosing what kind of information you want to show. You can have as much or as little information showing for your contacts at once. You can also click on each individual address to see all of its information on one page.

Note: The field settings that you choose in your “Customize” screen will affect your entire Address Book and not just the individual folders of Addresses. See the image below:

When your addresses are in “List View” both the “Search“ command and the “Filter” feature, as what fields you can search through depends on what is showing when you are viewing your Address Book or folder of Addresses. What fields you can sort your Addresses by and what contact information is printed is also affected as you can only sort your addresses using the field types that are visible.
