A new setting option has been added to Accounting Defaults which allows for fine tune adjustment of printer calibration when printing checks.  The vast majority of printers works great with the default settings; however, if when you print checks the text prints a little too far up, down, left or right, you can make adjustments to these within Rentec Direct.

Using the universally recognized X, Y coordinate system (see image right), you can move the text in any of four directions.  Each value represents 1/100th of an inch; therefore a value of 50 is 1/2 of an inch.  A few examples:

  • To move all text down 1/4 inch, enter -25 in Y.
  • To move all text up 1/4 inch, enter 25 in Y.
  • To move text 1/4 inch down and right, enter -25 in Y and 25 in X.

To make use of this new feature, visit Settings, Accounting Defaults.  You’ll find the option right next to the other check printing settings.
