Memo Prints Too Low on Checks

Apparently, this has been an issue for years for MAC Users only! The Quicken excuse has been that window envelopes reveal the memo field. If this was, indeed, the case, why is this not an issue for Windows users as well? It's 2021 -- PLEASE add an adjustable Memo x/y field for Mac Users!

    @pg111213 Just letting you know that registering your complaint here won't be seen by the Quicken developers. I don't print checks, but I understand the frustration that this hasn't been addressed. The best you can do is add your vote to the existing Idea thread for this request.

    Where, exactly, on your checks is the Memo text printing? Can you provide an example?
    And what style checks do you use? (Voucher, Standard, Wallet)
    If the Memo text prints just above the MICR code line, without infringing on it, you're OK. Otherwise adjust printing to print everything a little higher, by 1/10" or so.

    @UKR This is a longstanding complaint about Quicken Mac. The program code for printing checks is very old, coming over from the Quicken Essentials program which provided the code base for the current Quicken Mac. The entire check printing area is built as a single block of text, making it impossible to independently adjust the location of the memo line, and restricting movement of the block to a full line at a time. The developers need to re-write this section of code to make the printing more flexible; considering relatively few people print checks from Quicken, and only some of them have a problem with the text alignment, this has not yet risen to the top of their priority list.
