I have labels & addresses software on both my laptop and desktop. I can't figure out how to get the lists from one computer to the other. Export only allows a PDF, tiff or eps file. When I save and then open on the second computer the data does not come in. Any insight would be appreciated.
Thanks

Hi Bernwa,

There is no option to export contacts on one computer in order to re-import on another.

There are two physical places on the disk where the contacts can be stored. The content of the internal data bases (Print Lists, My Recipients and Senders) is located in this folder:
~/Library/Application Support/Labels & Addresses

The contacts you have imported are in the cash:
~/Library/Caches/com.belightsoft.LabelsAddresses

To copy your databases to another computer, copy there the folder related to the first link. It is very probable that it will work if you copy the cashes too.

To transfer the program settings, you can also copy the preferences file to the second computer:
~/Library/Preferences/com.belightsoft.LabelsAddresses.plist

Thank you. That worked perfectly!
I wonder why Belight doesn't offer an option to transfer files easily?

Probably we will add this feature in one of future updates.
