  • Question

    Quicken 2008 won't print checks. I just get all the print results bunched at the left of the page.

  • I found this work around on another site.


    Install any free PDF converter (I used Bullzip, but anything should work)
    Go to Printers and rename it "Quicken PDF Printer". Make sure the new name matches that exactly! Quicken apparently isn't bight enough to know this is not the real Quicken PDF printer.
    Start quicken. You should now be able to choose any printer you have installed. The Quicken PDF Printer still won't work, but doing this allowed me to print to my 16 year old HP LaserJet 4L and the Microsoft XPS printer, so at least I can print checks and XPS files, and if I really need a PDF I can print the XPS to PDF.
