Forms: (Professional) Invoices - hide zero (0.00) values on line with just date

Traditionally (ie Classic and AE) it has been possible to print lines with Dates and descriptions with zero values and no amount is dislayed; merely a blank field. Now in AR2018 all zero values print as $0.00.


So where a proressional layout may have numerous lines reflecting varying dates and descriptions and a single total at the bottom now each date line is showing the $0.00. It looks anything but Professional!


Surely we can have an option to suppress printing zero values!

    I 100% agree. I've just spent hours adding headers to every line of all of my recurring Invoices - to avoid this exact same thing.


    Shortcut is CNTL+SHIFT+R if you need a current work around - it inserts the equivalent of a note line, and no account number of $0.

  • Agreed, I just had to help someone with this a fortnight ago.  Almost went crazy before I remembered how to do the Add note lines trick.
    (Can it be more obvious that there's a hidden right click add note lines option as well as having an optional "Suppress 0 value lines on professional invoices" option?)

  • I totally agree, looks very unprofessional.
