    As kattnip333 said, we already know we can use iCloud to print a List in Alpha order. And, since iCloud does include the Groups you may use, you can print a list from a Group. However, all you can is print a simple list. You cannot print mailing labels or anything else other than a list.

    That's correct AMCarter3.  But then use the regular contacts to print labels and envelopes after all, they really don't need to be in alphabetical order.  I still have my original snowleopard contact list so I'm happy. Also, I have an iPad and Touch that has the contacts in them and one or the other is always with me.  Just think how blessed we are only to have a problem of printing out our contacts......... hahaha

    kattnip333, you are  right... Use iCloud for an alpha list and Contacts for the labels. Good enough. Thanks.

    Yes, we are aware that you can print a list of contacts -- BUT the list is not in alphabetical order.

    I've been reading this thread since its inception.  Not only can you NOT print in alphabetical order (how strange to not be able to do this from a company like Apple), you cannot print headshots from contacts either.  I haven't been able to since "upgrading" to Mountain Lion.  Why, Apple, why?  I have waited months for you to fix this.  Why? I need this feature for work and nothing from you.  <sigh>

    Bring back the ability to print from Contacts as it was in Snow Leopard so we can do the most basic of tasks: print in alphabetical order... please!  I want/need the ability to print headshots as well.  We no longer have that feature either.  <sigh>  iCloud does not do this so please do not tell me to go there.  Thanks!

    eleanorva..... you are correct about using Numbers.  I played around and was able to do so... it takes effort but if it's a must have, you need to be willing for now to take the effort until Apple corrects the problem.  Thanks.  I wouldn't do it for hundreds of addresses but for groups it worked out quite well.  It will print photos, notes... everything.... here's the procedure...

     

    Go to System Preferences - Security & Privacy - Privacy tab - check Numbers app (this allows you to use contacts in numbers)

     

    Open a new blank numbers sheet.  Open a group in Contacts. Select all names. Drag names into Numbers sheet.

    Go to the "Tables" tab in Numbers and "unhide all columns".  Now delete all the empty columns and make the rows 1" to accommodate pictures and of the several address columms delete all but the 2 line address. There you have it.... all the info and in alphabetical order.....

     

    Thanks again eleanorva......

    What a royal pain in the Arse as the English might say... we can only hope that Apple monitors this forum and hears our pain...

    I'm praying it will let us use "Attributes" again when trying to print Contacts (like it was BEFORE Mountain Lion). I want to be able to print headshots, create a birthday list, etc. when printing from Contacts. I'm keeping my fingers crossed and will be livid if we still don't have this feature. I mean really!  Why did this not continue into Mountain Lion, I'll never understand.

    thanks for the heads up.  it finally works.  only one that didn't print was the photo but who cares... if you don't know what they look like why are they in your address book?  FINALLY we can all quit complaining.  The angels on high heard us....

    Apple, please bring back the feature to print Headshots from Contacts.  I need the ability to create Photo Directories.  I am sure others used this feature as well.
