My checks have starting printing upside down and only half in the que?

Hey there, lauren4.

I'd be glad to help you get your printing back to normal.

An outdated Adobe version can lead to a problem when printing in QuickBooks Online. You can check this article for detailed information about Downloading Acrobat Reader.

Once you have the most current version, let's go to your QuickBooks Online company and set your printing alignment.

Here's how:

  1. Select the Plus icon (+) on the Toolbar.
  2. Under Vendors, choose Print Checks.
  3. At the bottom of the page, select Print Setup.
  4. The window changes to Print checks setup. Choose No, continue setup at the bottom of the page. On the next screen, select No, continue setup.
  5. Now you’re on Fine-tune alignment. Drag the grid inside the large square to the place where it appears on your printout. This lets QuickBooks figure out how to adjust the alignment.
  6. Select View preview and print sample in the lower left and choose Print at the bottom.
  7. After the sample is printed on plain paper, hold it up to the light against a check and see if the alignment is correct.
  8. If you still need to do some fine tuning, close the sample and then go back to the grid to make adjustments, then print a fresh sample.
  9. Select Finish Setup when your sample’s alignment looks correct.

This should get everything back in working order. Please let me know if you have any other questions. Have a good one.
