How do I perform a cheque alignment or printer alignment in EP Live?

A cheque alignment must be done to ensure the cheque will print properly before payroll cheques can be printed out of EP Live. Alignments must be done with the guidance of a Canadian support representative.

Before you begin, ensure that you have blank paper, a ruler, and your cheque printer ready.

To contact a representative to perform an alignment:

Tip: A new alignment will be required if you change your EP Live designated cheque printer. No alignments are required when changing you cheque copy printer.

How do I print cheques and cheque copies?
  1. Sign in to EP Live.
  2. Select the Cheques tab.
  3. A Cheque or Printer Alignment must be done at this stage to ensure the cheque margins print properly. If the alignment was previously completed, proceed to next step.
  4. A list of invoices that are available for printing will be visible.
  5. From the Print All Cheques or Print All Copies columns, click the check box next to the invoice(s) you wish to print.
  6. Click Print to print your selection, or you may further narrow your selection by selecting the Reprint by Range option.

Tip: Your cheques and your copies must be printed separately and can be assigned to be printed on separate printers. Printer selection is at the bottom of the Cheques tab and can be updated at any time. Keep in mind, if you do update your Cheque Printer, a new Cheque or Printer Alignment will be required before being able to print.
