Printing alignment for printing a partial page of Standard checks

ccbeth Member

I use business checks with 3 on a page. All of a sudden, when I try to print the 2nd or 3rd checks on the page separately, the alignment is off. It was working perfectly and I haven't changed printer or checks. What do I do?

    Hello @ccbeth,

    If you haven't already, I recommend that you Reset all Quicken printer settings by following the steps provided below. However, we do recommend that you first save a backup of your data file first (just in case).

    1. Open the File menu.
    2. Validate and Repair File...
    3. At the bottom of the Validate and Repair window, check the box for "Reset all Quicken printer settings".
    4. Close the Data Log when it opens
    5. Close Quicken (keep closed for at least 5 seconds)
    6. Reopen Quicken

    Once that is done, see if the issue persists.

    I hope this helps!

    After following @Quicken Anja 's advice above, please perform Printer Setup / For printing checks again.

    Which brings up the question: How are you loading partial pages into your printer? Portrait style or sideways?
    How easy or difficult is it to load partial pages?
    What printer make and model do you use?

    My 2cents' worth:
    I use Voucher Checks (1 business size check + 2 stubs on an 8.5x11" sheet). My printers do not have a manual feed tray or 2nd paper tray that can easily be reconfigured to feed partial pages (1 or 2 checks left from a 3-checks-per-page sheet), so for my occasional check printing needs Voucher Checks are easiest to use.
    When making a purchase decision for a new supply of check forms and considering your own check stock to use, consider how easy or difficult it is to feed special forms or odd-size partial pages into your printer.
