Thanks for the quick reply eldy, I've been testing with a 3.1.0 version so far.

I just performed a test on the demo site and it looks as bizarre as I said before.
See invoice FA1203-1206.

Regarding the 1st point, this would mean (to avoid empty fields in an invoice) to setup different templates to suite different use cases... I'm afraid it's not as practical as it seemed at 1st glance...

Best regards,

Hi all,

Following a discussion initiated on the "Association" mailing list speaking about an ODT template looking like the "old" crabe template, I'm trying to setup that ODT crabe-like template. That could be a good starting point for many of us to decline custom templates.

I'm facing different kinds of issues, some of them are not easy to solve (for me) whenever they are.
  • How to select some fields to appear in the generated invoice or not depending on their valuation ?
    For example, how not to print the reference to the commercial proposal in the header, when none was produced, or the received payments at the bottom of the invoice, when still none has been emitted yet ?
    ==> Until now, I feel like it's not possible. :-\
Not possible.
But if field is empty when nto defined, you can always put the value and it will be replace by '' so nothing appears.

  • How to add the contact name in the customer's address (already asked here [fr]).
    ==> I guess it is possible with "customised tags".

  • How to position the summary after the invoice lines to a fixed line ?
    ==> I managed to sort it out using arrays, but I'm afraid it won't work with a multipage invoice... Need some more testing.

  • Where to find data for the payments already done ?

  • Tags in the page bottom are not interpreted. This is where I put juridical and administrative informations. This doesn't absolutely need to be extracted from the dabase, i.e. it may be hard coded in the ODT template with my current values, but that'd be so cool to have it soft coded. :-)

  • When I choose a predifined product/service, and its description includes line feed and special characters (such as "°" or any 8bit ASCII chars éàèœ...), then the description line in the ODT generated file is unreadable, due to many <br />, &deg; and other codes...
Did you test with 3.1.1 or dev version ?
If you have pb with 3.1.1 or dev, can you reproduct pb onto and provide me the ref ?

That'll be enough for today, thanks for reading. 8-)
