    Hi, Thanks for your great work. I was wondering how I can create and customize a new invoice template. I tried to open one of the default ones to use it as a guide but I found out they are encrypted. I know I can edit the css files, but that means that you can't really customize the structure of the invoice. I was excited about this new feature cuz I thought we would be able to finally have a good looking professional invoice.

    I appreciate your effort on providing another three new invoice templates, which are better than the old one, but I still think the design needs to be improved.
    I am a noob on how to generate pdf invoices, so I guess you guys haven't come up with a better design because it's not that easy to generate it to pdf (noob asumption here) When I think of a professional company design, I mean something like this https://s3-eu-west-1.amazonaws.com/...e_html5_invoice_templates/example2/index.html


    Regards,
    Marvin M

    @Marvin Mendez if you want to get the latest download .. you can move over the invoices as they are now unencoded.

    @CE-Alberto those are great news! Thanks. I thought I had downloaded the latest, and my CE is actually showing 5.1.0. Will download it again to get the latest changes.

    Thanks a lot.

    You do have latest. We unencoded the files after you downloaded. Same version.

    Is there a template available for download to keep it the same as 5.0 and earlier? The default template now looks different to what it was before.

    Hi CE..

    Also at CE 5.1 invoice I see now there is new column "Notes visible to customer" .. This very useful too.. So we can put another additional notes here for some case ..

    But I see this Notes only visible at Web (Client Portal or admin portal) .... I'll think It will be good if you can put too at PDF Invoice, as that title "visible to customer". Because many customer rarely log in to their Client portal, except they want to make new order or change it. But they definitely check and get their PDF invoice.

    Hi,

    This has been there for so long. This is in the PDF.
    Not sure what do you mean.


    Thanks.
