How do I set it up so that the "write a check" comes up with the next check number instead of "To print"?

Using Quickbooks for Mac. I manually write checks, then record them in Quickbooks. To record checks I use the "write a check" feature (vs. entering bills and using the "pay bill" feature). The check number comes up as "To Print" and I can't change it to a check number without first printing a "check". I know it can be changed because at another company using the same version of Quickbooks and using the same "write a check" feature it automatically comes up with the next check number filled in (which I can change if I want). How do I set it up so that the "write a check" comes up with the next check number instead of "To print"?

This worked! I guess "To print" is the default setting because the "print this check later" (printer icon) was selected by default. That icon works as a toggle button so when I clicked it, it "unselected" the print later feature and put a check number on my check instead of "To print". Thanks so much!!!!

yes I understand that it is just annoying that when I uncheck "print later" it comes up with the wrong check number and then goes to print screen and doesn't go back to write check. It is a difference of about 20 clicks to write checks from what use to be about 5. Just a lot of ways to mess up. I want to print one check at at time. We just changed from QB on Windows to QB online on Mac. Definitely not as user friendly.
