    I just noticed that when I upload a CSV of people and addresses, it accepts fields like:
    Address
    City
    State
    Post Code

    But when I then download the addresses for use in our mailing label program or postcard mailing app, the address fields are all merged together as one string making it difficult to use:
    Address,City,State,Post Code

    Is there a reason the fields are not kept separate?
    Thanks!

    Address are stored as one field comma separated. Any output then uses the for a new line. There is a mailing label PDF output within the plugin.
    Addresses are kept as one line because the plugin is international and every nation has a different way of doing addresses – some nations have the postal code before the city for instance. Storing as one field keeps it simple.
    The CSV import allows for one line (ie one column) addresses and merges multiple line addresses into the most common format for storage.
