Quickbooks Desktop Check Printing Alignment Issues

I use preprinted checks with Quickbooks Desktop.  The information printed on the preprinted checks prints crooked.  We use the same paper when printing from other applications and do not have this issue.

Quickbooks Desktop Check Printing Alignment Issues

Let's ensure your QuickBooks is updated to the latest release, andrewsjacob.


Next, we can run the QuickBooks PDF & Print Repair Tool. This will help you in resolving any problem with the printing alignment and other related issues.

  1. Download and run the QuickBooks Print and PDF Repair Tool.
  2. Try printing the check once more after the tool completes.
  3. If the problem persists, you will have to reboot your computer and reset the temp folder permissions.

Here are the steps in resetting your temp folder permission:

  1. Press the Windows key + R to open the RUN command.
  2. Type %TEMP% and press Enter.
  3. Right-click an empty area of the temp folder.
  4. Select Properties.
  5. Click the Security tab.
  6. Ensure all usernames and groups have Full Control.
  7. Once the permissions have been set to Full Control, try saving the check as PDF again within QuickBooks.

If the steps given above didn't do the trick, you can try the other recommendations in this article: Troubleshoot PDF and Print problems with QuickBooks Desktop.


Let me know how it goes, I'll be here if you need further assistance.
