QuickBooks-Desktop-Tip (8)

If you print checks out of QuickBooks, you may have run into an issue where the content doesn’t print where you want it to print. For example, maybe the dollar amount prints too high or too low on the pre‑ printed check stock. I typically notice this when the printer needs serviced or when using a new printer that’s not been used to print checks. Regardless, QuickBooks has a simple way that you can fix this issue.

From the menu bar click File (1), click Printer Setup (2), select Checks/PayCheck (3) from the Form Name dropdown, click the Align button (4), make adjustments to the Vertical and Horizontal alignment (5), click the OK button (6) in the Fine Alignment window, and click the OK button (7) in the Printer Setup window. Going forward the adjustments will be in place.
