When processing checks, the format tab includes an Edit Payment Options button. The settings in this area are the same settings you find in the Edit Account Details window on the Payments tab. When a user edits this area from the Print Checks and Record Bank Drafts window, they are able to make changes on the fly.
After making changes in the Edit Payment options window, users have the option to save the changes they made to the bank. Marking this option save the changes to this bank for the time being, going forward. If this box is marked, the change will no longer be temporary just for the check run but will change the settings for all users using that bank. This decision may come into play if the alignment is changed to suit a particular printer.
