Check Printing

Just converted from Desktop to QBO and if I print 3 checks on a page only the top check is aligned correctly.

Help!

 

Also, I do not see how to print just 1 check... on desktop I can hit "partial page" so easily..

Check Printing

No app necessary.  If you use standard checks which come three to a page, you may have one or two checks left over from a previous printing.

To print a partial page of one or two checks:

  1. Choose Expenses at the left > Print Checks.
  2. Go to the Select Checks to Print section.
  3. For Number of checks on first page, choose 1 or 2 (it defaults to 3 if you're printing a full page of 3 checks).  It is called Standard.  You will see the pic for three checks.
  4. Click Print.

To prevent wasted checks and paper jams, attach a reusable Intuit Forms Leader to easily print one or two leftover checks.

  1. Go to the Select Checks to Print section. (You can get there by going to the navigation bar, click Transactions (or Expenses tab depending on your setup) > Print Checks.
  2. For Number of checks on first page, choose 1 or 2 (it defaults to 3 if you're printing a full page of 3 checks).
  3. Click Print.

Printing on voucher checks without the voucher printing

If you have voucher checks and only want the check printed without the voucher part printing, you will need to change the check type to Standard and print one check at a time.

  1. Choose Expenses at the left > Print Checks.
  2. In the Alignment and Setup section, select Standard checks
  3. In the Select Checks to Print section, choose 1 for the Number of checks on first page
  4. Select the check you want printed and click Print.

You will need to do this for each check you want printed without the voucher part of the check being printed.

I also have the problem of the first check aligning but the rest are not.  Looks like it is printing a voucher check and not a standard check which I am asking for.  How do I fix this?

Hi there, tntmd.


Thanks for looping in. Let me help you with your check alignment issue.


One possible reason that may cause this to occur is if the complete setup was not performed before printing a check. If it’s your first time printing a check using a new printer, make sure to perform the steps given in this article: Set up alignment to print checks.


On that same article, you’ll find additional information about printing checks on pre-printed forms.


In case you need help in doing the recommended steps to resolve the issue, you may give our Customer Care Team a call for further assistance. They can do screen-sharing session with you to make sure everything is set up as required.


You can find our phone support’s number through this link: https://community.intuit.com/articles/1145770.


Let me know how it goes by leaving a comment below. I’ll be here anytime you need help with QuickBooks. Wishing you the best!

I need to align my check printing and why do I have to go to PDF to print. Previously on my former computer I did not have to go their. There was a Print icon that popped up and you could click it and it would print. Now I have to print with PDF which i would prefer not to use.

Glad to see you here, @mjatkins65,

 

I want to help you further with your check alignment. QBO will open a PDF view automatically when you set Adobe Reader as your browser’s default PDF viewer. This is a recommended setting to make sure your checks are aligned when printed.

 

Follow the steps below to configure the alignment:

 

  1. Press  + New then Print checks.
  2. Click on Print setup at the bottom.
  3. Select No, continue setup. Then select No, continue setup again.This opens up the check in an alignment window where you can adjust the margins to correct the alignment:
  4. In the check image window, drag the grid so the numbers are in the same place they appear on your sample print. QuickBooks will automatically adjust the alignment.
    Note: The numbers on the vertical and horizontal fields are adjustable and tell QuickBooks exactly where to print the check amount.
  5. After adjusting the grid, select View preview and print sample. Then select Print.
  6. Follow the on-screen steps to finish printing your sample check
  7. Check the alignment of your sample against a blank check.
  8. Repeat the grid alignment process and print as many times as you need until your check is aligned correctly.
  9. Use Finish Setup.
