Cannot add custom field to Sales Form

I am doing the following...

  1. Turn on Developer Mode.
  2. Go to Sales Orders and Select a Sales Order from the list view.
  3. Select "Manage Views" from the Debug dopdown list.
  4. Make sure "sale.order.form" is selected.
  5. Click the "Edit Button"
  6. Select the "+" button for the client_order_ref field line (or any other field)
  7. In the properties dialog box, select any field (or even create a new field) and click the "Update" button.

Result, nothing happens. The "Properties" dialog box just sits there. The dilog box does not go way and the view is not updated.

I have tried this with both Internet Explorer and Chrome and the behavior is the same, so I don't think it is a browser issue. I am logged in as admin and have enabled Technical Features.

The log shows no errors.

What am I missing?

You need to be sure to used a correct form, because you see in code and use a reference Manage views, view Name : Ex. stock.partial.picking.form Then find in the code and edit code. Other way refresh module and see you change.

I really appreciate your attempt to help, but I just don't understand your explanation. I am totally lost in interpreting the first part of your explanation. As far as the second part, what exactly do you mean by "refresh module"? How do I "refresh" the module?
