New (tax) year, new help!

Fixed Assets and UltraTax CS 2023 help is now on Help and Support. We're still moving articles, but you can find most content for the 2023 tax year there. Continue using the Help & How-To Center for tax years 2022 and older.

You can adjust the darkness of the shaded areas on printed input screens, forms, and (if you are licensed for it) UltraTax/1040 Client Organizer pages.

  1. Depending on whether UltraTax CS is set up for firm-wide or user-defined print options, do one of the following:
    • Office-wide print options: Choose Setup > Office Configuration; if required, enter the master password and click Done; and then click the Print Options tab.
    • User-defined print options: Choose Setup > User Preferences and then click the Print Options tab.

      Note: This tab is available only if you are licensed for the network version of UltraTax CS.

  2. In the Print Options dialog or tab, click the Page Layout and Shading button.
  3. In the Page Layout and Shading dialog, click the tab that corresponds to the item for which you want to modify the shading.
  4. In the Shading group box, move the sliding lever to None, Light, or Normal.

    Note: Normal shading is 20% shade, and light shading is 10% shade.

  5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 for each tab, as desired.
  6. Click OK.
