Got a QuickBooks Mess? Call The QuickBooks Gal!

Ask the QuickBooksGal!Hi, I'm Jayne Miller, The QuickBooks Gal. Welcome to another in my series of “Quicklets” – informational podcasts about QuickBooks, Peachtree and related bookkeeping topics.
Did you know that you can change the default title of a form when you view it onscreen and when you print it? You can also change the way the title looks when the form is printed. For example, you can change the font, add a line or border around the title, and move the title to a different location. Today, I’m going to address changing the default title on forms, however once you get to the step where you open the Layout Designer, you’ll find that there are a lot of customizations you can make to the forms you use in QuickBooks.

Here’s how:
1. Open the Customize window.
2. To change the default title, click the Header field and enter the new title in the Title field.
3. To change the way the title appears on the printed form:
a. Click the Layout Designer button.
b. In the Layout Designer, do any or all of the following:
- Move the title to a different position on the form - Change the font for the form title - Add borders or lines around the title - Add a background color to the title (if you will print the form on a color printer)
4. When done, click OK to close the Layout Designer window.
5. Click OK to close the Customize window.
6. To see how the form will look when you print it, preview the form.

Well, that’s it for now. I appreciate your time and hope you will join us again next time for another in our Quicklet© series. If there are topics you would like me to cover, send me an email at I welcome your ideas, questions, and comments.
