How can I align my pre-printed forms?

Incorrect form(s) are being used, the wrong printer driver is installed, or alignment is set incorrectly.

Verify proper forms are being used, adjust alignment, print drivers

  1. Ensure that the forms being used are approved for use with our software.  Compatible forms can be found at
  2. If you are using the correct forms make sure other programs print correctly.

Adjust alignment

  1. Click on the Print Forms button.  
  2. Choose the form type to be printed.
  3. Click OK.
  4. On the print screen in the lower right corner there is a section titled “Adjust text alignment.” Inside this box you can adjust the horizontal and vertical alignment. Keep in mind the adjustment increment is only 1/1000th of an inch. For example, to move the text to the right or down 1/4th an inch, enter 250 in the appropriate box. Putting a minus(-) before the number will adjust it either left or up.

Update print drivers

  1. Download the most recent printer drivers from the printer manufacturer’s website.
