During printing of checks, the first line of the Payee Address gets cut off in the middle and is replaced with 3 dots:  "..." I'm not sure why the full text shows in the entry window, but gets cut off during printing.

How long is the text?
What style checks are you printing?
And can you show us an example, please?
What version of Quicken Mac are you using?

Can you please capture one or more images of the parts of your Quicken window showing the issue, sensitive information blacked out as necessary to protect your privacy but annotated to describe the situation, and attach the image(s) here?
The Windows Snipping Tool (available with Windows 7 and up) can be used to capture a partial screen image and save it to a file.  Microsoft Paint can be used to annotate the image.

Text = 52 characters
Check style: Personal Wallet
Quicken Deluxe Mac: 5.9.2

The attached image shows the Payee Address window. The first line begins with letters "Je" and is cut-off at the 42nd character. The remaining 10 characters did not print.

Somebody from Quicken would have to confirm, but AFAIK can determine, the programmers only assigned a certain amount of space (width per line in inches), and 3 address lines for Wallet checks.
I'm guessing that, if you printed this check using the business-size Standard or Voucher Check style, there'd be more space available for the address.
