Write checks is grayed out so I can't write any checks!

Under transactions, the "write checks" category is grayed out and no matter what I do I can't change this. I can't write any checks. This is extremely frustrating. It has happened before and corrected itself after a few days but I don't have a few days before my painter needs to be paid.

    Usually, Write Checks is grayed out when you have selected an account group in the left sidebar rather than an individual account. Check to see if your register is showing "Cash" or "Banking" or "All Transactions". You need to click on your actual checking account in the sidebar, and then Write Checks should be available in the Transactions menu.
