Why just half of check or image or form or report printed from my printer?

by admin 10. April 2011 02:29

Several users asked why just half of check or image or form was printed when they printed it from printer recently. So we decide to add the solutions to our blog.

The most common reason for this issue is the printer uses the wrong size paper. You should use the Letter size paper when you print the check. (image printer.jpg)

It can also be a display problem caused by the machine setting or the printer settings. User can change these settings to fix this printing problem.
