    Pastel: Description field on Invoice.....how do I increase size?

    Hi,

    I find that the space I have available in the description field on a Pastel invoice is often not enough to complete all the information I want to put onto the invoice.

    Is there any way to increase the size?

    Neville, since you are the Pastel guru I have another question on invoices - is there any way to make the "Quantity" and "Unit price" fields editable if I'm not processing from Inventory?

    I.e. I want to enter in the GL code and then manually put in the quantity and unit price

    Unfortunately it is not possible to use the quantity and unit price fields if you using a GL code.

    What you can do is create one or more inventory codes, as service items (not physical items), and then, under Setup...Inventory, create an Inventory Group for each of those inventory items, and then map them to the relevant GL account.
