Different printer alignments for different users

For quickbooks Enterprise desktop:  I am not sure how printer alignment settings for check printing are stored.  We have two users now with two different printers that need two different alignment settings.   Is this doable?   Is it easy, as in the alignment settings go with the user or particular desktop, or are they shared in the company file such that this is hard or impossible.

Different printer alignments for different users

Welcome to QuickBooks Community, pizzachef.


I understand that you want to make this setting perfect. In QuickBooks Desktop, you'll have to set up the printing alignment per computer and printer. If you haven't yet, you can follow the detailed steps in these articles:

Also, I've included this link if you encountered any printing issues: Troubleshoot PDF and Print problems with QuickBooks Desktop.


Leave a comment below if you have more questions. I'm looking forward to assisting you again.

So if one user aligns forms for her computer, will that reset the setting for the other user, such that they will have dueling settings, or are settings saved per printer or user?


Different printer alignments for different users

Hello there, pizzachef,


The users can select the printer they're using. However, they need to set the alignment according to their printer's settings. We're unable to save different printer settings per printer or user. They need to click Align again to adjust the settings for printing.


Check out this article for future reference: Align forms for continuous-feed (dot matrix) printers.


Let me know if you have other questions.

Different printer alignments for different users

wow, nice to see the clueless answers you got to this question.  Typical.

I have the same problem you are having and simply would like to know WHERE the setting file that saves this alignment?   Why wasn't somebody intelligent enough to either store this in the USER ini file rather than a community computer shared setting.???   HELLO..  so many things that are wrong with QB and yet, never are addressed and fixed.   It's on with making the next version, copy paste.. sell it!
