Still problems with PDF directory

I'm afraid I still can't get a PDF directory to work correctly.

I was using pdf=1, but to show birthdays I switched to pdf=2 and thought it solved the problem. However, pdf=2 doesn't show any phone numbers or emails, even though there are fields for them. It does show birthdates as I wanted.

pdf=1 shows everything we need EXCEPT birthdays, and I actually prefer the larger photos.

Am I doing something wrong? I can't find any settings affecting it.

Thank you.

Thank you, Jon, for posting this question, as I have the same issue.
And thank you, Andy, for creating this alternate directory format as it is much clearer and paginates nicely.

Hi chaps, in the next update v2.6875 pdf=1 will by default show the dates of birth if stored. Adding showDOB=FALSE turns that off!

Thank you, that's an improvement, but pdf=1 still has problems. Pictures will break over pages. PDF=2 handles pictures and pagination much better but doesn't include contact info. Really need a combination of both!

Actually, now that I'm working with it both have the same problems with pagination and pictures breaking. I will just create my own, but in the future would be lovely to generate a good pdf for our older folks who aren't tech savvy.

I'll have a good look at it soon!
This week Events is getting a rewrite as it was pretty buggy.
