We ended up having to delete these transactions, close out the batch and then do a second set of donations with these left-over checks. Is this something that is a limit in MLS? I am certain we have had other weeks where we had a lot of checks but this has never happened before.
There's certainly no fundamental limit to the number of checks in a batch. Batches with more than 20 checks are extremely common; with last Sunday being Fast Sunday, I'm sure that every ward in my stake had a batch with more than 20 checks.
So I'm trying to figure out how you could have had this problem. On the Balance step of processing a donation, the list of checks is in a window that may have a scroll bar if there are more checks than fit in the window (the height of the window depends on the overall height of the MLS application's window). It's certainly possible that the unscrolled window would display only the first 20 checks. Is it possible that whoever was operating the computer didn't notice the scroll bar, and so thought there were only 20 checks?
Or could there be some obscure bug in MLS where the scroll bar may not appear in some odd circumstance, even when there are more checks than fit in the window? I did try resizing the width of the MLS application window, and the check panel's scroll bar is the last thing to disappear, even when the app window width is sized to be very small, so the app window width is not likely to be a factor.
