How can I align the mailing address on a check. I use envelopes with windows and the address on the checks needs to be lowered .

Hello there, @markbrunsell.

 

I'm here to help you align the Mailing Address on your Check. 

 

Let's lower that address in just a few steps:

  1. Go to the + New button, then select Print Checks.
  2. At the bottom of the page, click Print setup.
  3. Choose the type of checks you have: voucher or standard. Load blank paper into your printer. You'll print on blank paper first, so that if you need to correct alignment, you won't waste actual checks.
  4. Press View preview and print sample, then hit the Print icon.
  5. 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.
  6. Click Finish Setup when your sample’s alignment looks correct.
  7. Apply the following changes:
    • Note: Changes should apply to most printer versions – make changes for the options you see below.
      • Page Scaling: set to None.
      • Auto-Rotate and Center must not be checked.
      • Make sure that Choose Paper Source by PDF size is checked.
      • If you’re using Adobe Acrobat, these options are slightly different:
        • Under Page Size & Handling:
          • Select Actual Size.
          • Select Choose paper source by PDF size.
        • Under Orientation:
          • Select Auto portrait/landscape.

That's all there's to it! You can now print your checks with the adjustments that needed to be made. For more information about how to align how your Checks print in QuickBooks Online, click here.

Using your directions allows me to only adjust where the dollar amount is printed but not the mailing address to whom the check is made out to. Do you understand my problem? Please send more help.

You're on the right track, @markbrunsell.

 

You can move and adjust the amount of your check by following the steps above. With, you'll want to manually adjust the alignment and format of your mailing address before printing your checks.

 

Lastly, here's a few articles you can read for ideas about how you can manage your vendors and expenses: Income and Expenses for QuickBooks Online.

 

Keep me posted in the comments down below if you have any other questions. I'll be around ready to help.

The instruction you gave me are the same I have found during the set up process. The grid lines are only where the dollar and cents amount is. There are no grid lines to adjust where the mailing address is printed.

Hell there, markbrunsell.
