Modify Invoice Design


Click the Add New Format link to start from a blank design, the Make a Copy link to start from a copy of the currently selected design, or click any design in the side bar to select it.

 

You cannot save any changes to the default design (Default Plain Paper). Use the Make a Copy link.

 

Edit the Title of the design. You can then adjust the settings on each of the tabs: Paper, Heading/Footing, Body, Body Totals, and Images.

 

 

Paper Tab


For Paper Type select if your paper size is Letter, Legal, or Custom. If you select Custom you can then edit the Page Width (inches) and Page Height (inches) fields.

 

The following fields are also available:

 

Font

Font Size

Forms Per Page

Vertical Starting for Body (inches)

Vertical Ending for Body (inches)

Print Name As

 

The Vertical Starting for Body and Vertical Ending for Body along with Vertical Offset for items on the Heading/Footing tab must have values that fall within the available height based on the Paper Type and Forms Per Page (ex: with a Paper Type of Letter and 2 Forms Per Page, the allowable range would be 0.25 - 5.25 inches).

 

If your values are outside of the allowable range you are not able to save your changes to the invoice design. Instead, a message appears detailing everything that needs to be changed and giving you the allowable ranges for each field based on your selections on the Paper tab.
