Print Checks

I am using the Quicken "wallet size" ( 3 to a page with a stub on the 
left side) checks that are printed on an 8 1/2 X 11 single sheets.
If a batch printing of multiple checks is not available then, a way to 
prevent the printer from advancing to the end of the sheet after 
printing one or two checks would work. Otherwise, I assume you would 
have to use something like a "Forms Leader" to attach the remaining 
checks to and then you would feed that sheet to the printer and then 
select top, middle or bottom check to print for the next check and so on 
for the third and final check of that sheet. Too time consuming and 
possible alignment problems.
