I am putting the check forms face up in the top drawer.  Should I be using the bypass tray instead?  I don't understand because I have been working here for several months and the checks lined up previously??  Now they are not.

Hello, @orccsec.

 

There are several reasons why your paychecks were not aligned when printing. Let me share some information to help resolve this concern without bypassing the paper tray in your printer.

 

First, let's make sure you've set up your payroll check printing preferences. Here's how: 

  1. Go to the Gear Icon.
  2. Choose Payroll Settings.
  3. Select the Preferences tab.
  4. Pick Paycheck Printing Settings.
  5. Set how'd you like to print your pay stubs and checks.
  6. Make sure that the Preprinted QuickBooks-compatible check paper is selected.
  7. Click on Align Checks, then follow the instructions on-screen.
    • The check is printing too high
      • ​​​​​​​Enter a letter that’s after the letter K (L to X) to move the information down.
    • The check is printing too low
      • ​​​​​​​Enter a letter that’s before the letter K (A to J) to move the information up.
    • The check is printing too far left
      • ​​​​​​​Enter a number that’s more than 5 (6 to 9) to move the information to the right.
    • The check is printing too far right
      • ​​​​​​​Enter a number that’s less than 5 (0 to 4) to move the information to the left.
  8. Select the Update Settings button.
  9. Click the Ok button. 4009.GIF

Now, let's make sure that the Adobe Acrobat or Reader installed in your computer is updated to the latest version. Once verified, let's make sure to check the alignment settings in your computer.
