A check test pattern can be printed that is comprised of “Xs” where the check information would be printed. A check test pattern can be printed on a check or on blank paper, and allows you to see where everything will print on a real check.
To print a check test pattern
If you find that the text does not line up, adjustments can be made to margins and the printer offset adjustment via Print Setup (File | Print Setup | Page Setup button).
Note: If Check Numbers Preprinted on Check is selected in Print Setup (File | Print Setup | Check Setup button), the check number used for the test pattern will automatically be voided. The voided check number will be printed on the test pattern.
Note: This process is also available in Accounts Payable Software (APS).
