How can I realign my checks for payroll after I have already went through the print setup on payroll?


Hi there, rosefinancialser.

Here's how you can align and print your pre-printed paychecks in QuickBooks Online:

  1. Click the Gear icon on the Toolbar and choose Payroll Settings.
  2. In the Preferences, select Paycheck Printing Settings.
  3. Choose Preprinted QuickBooks-compatible voucher check stock.
  4. Select Print 2 stubs or Print 1 stub, then OK.
  5. Choose Open Alignment Window.
  6. Close the pop-up window, then select Align Checks.
  7. Print the alignment page on plain paper.
  8. Stack your printout on a piece of pre-printed check stock. Just hold them up to a light to check the positioning.
  9. Follow the instructions on the paper after printing, then choose the best fit letter and number.
  10. Select Update Settings, then OK.

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
