Interface design copying Apple's address book

I believe you just need to write a script that hides empty fields and
sets the top of filled out fields to the bottom of other filled out
fields (with a margin, probably). You probably want to group the whole
thing and give the group scrollbars.
Actually, I hate the addressbook, because I never know where I will
find the data I need and I have to activate the silly edit mode to be
able to change something. I have a few addresses in it, but for the
more serious stuff I'm still using my old perfectly working HyperCard
stack, which I will probably convert to Rev anytime soon.
Please, don't use the geometry manager. The day will come that you
regret using it.
