    Do you have any other Windows 7 machines running Dynamics GP that you can use to test?  Do any other reports have the same issue, such as posting reports?

    My guess is that it is a printer driver issue.

    Here are some options to try and troubleshoot:

    1) Try printing the checks from another Windows 7 machine
    2) Try printing the checks (or the alignment form) to another printer
    3) Try changing the printer driver on the machine
    4) Make sure to clear any unusual settings in the Windows printer options / defaults, such as shrink to fit page, zoom, etc.

    This question is still valid because it is faced by many Dynamics GP users.

    Sorry for the lack of response.  We changed the printer driver to postscript, and it appears to have increased the font size on reports.  Before getting the ps driver, we converted the check form to the graphical version and removed lines and shading.  We did have to make addl adjustments after the ps driver was loaded.
