It is possible to print Moneydance transactions on virtually any style of pre-printed checks, including standard checks, checks with stubs, and voucher checks.

To print checks with Moneydance you will first need to obtain pre-printed check stock. Moneydance will print the date, amount, payee, memo, and optionally the address of a payee on your checks.

Moneydance cannot print the account and routing number on a completely blank check, due to special ink requirements.

You will need to set the appropriate check printing preferences in Moneydance, within Preferences --> Check Printing. You may wish to refer to the 'Preferences' section for more information.

To use the check-printing feature, you will need to mark some of your transactions as to-be-printed.
This can be done by setting the check number field for the transactions to be printed as {Print}.

In order to print the address of a payee on the paper check you will first need to make sure that an Address Book entry has been associated with the transaction to print. You may wish to refer to the 'Address Book' section for more information.

You will also need to select the Show Address option for the style of check you are printing in the check printing preferences.

If an address book entry has been associated with a transaction, the @ symbol will appear next to the payee name in the transaction editor, or in the description field in the account register.

When you select the File → Print Checks function, Moneydance will locate any transactions with {Print} in the check number field. It will print them onto paper checks, and put the number of the paper check into the check number field.

You will have the opportunity to select the first check number to use, which checks to print, and other options.

After printing checks Moneydance verify if all checks have printed correctly, and you'll have the opportunity to reprint any that were not.
