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"?

You'll have to select the Print features, then choose the Check option in QuickBooks Desktop (QBDT) Accountant, @jbnphnx. Let me share further details about this.
The check number is assigned depending on the check number preference you set. You're able to access the check number field when you write checks through the Print icon. From there, you'll be given the option to print a single or multiple checks you marked for Print Later. Let's open the Write Checks window to open the check number field by performing the following steps:
I've attached a screenshot below that shows the last three steps.
