After applying Patch 18226519 (UNABLE TO PRINT XMLP OUTPUT RTF USING SECURE FONTS), checks (APY2021X1 process) sent directly to the printer have margins skewed to the right and images are slightly compressed and pixelated.  The issue is with the conversion to PCL which effects the margins and images (logo and signature) on the final output.  If the checks are sent to the printer via Query Report Scheduler, then the checks print correctly.  If the checks are sent to the web, then the check images are fine.

Note:  In this case, the printer did not have secured fonts.  However, the printer contains PCL drivers but they do not have any secured or signature fonts installed and therefore do not have any PCL escape sequences in their rtf template.
