Is there any way to add comments between order lines in sales orders and quotations?

In v7 the account_layout and sale_layout modules were dropped which enabled comments, notes, titles and other useful entries.

In 7 however, you can add multi-line comments to a line in the Sales Order and Invoice records without requiring a product and you can re-order just by dragging the line items up or down.

Yes, many thanks, works for the time being, a real comment or grouping would be better, but it works so far ;-)

Please note that the "text line" will be added to your invoice analyses as a product sold, looks strange.

yes, its far from perfect, a simple comment line would be better. tried to enter a usual sales order we do currently manually with openoffice, but stuck while trying to give such orders a bit of the usual structure we have...

Not without a customization. The closest you can get to that is by using multi-lines in the description of a line; it will still be "within the same line" though.

OK, i mean between order lines... may create a empty product ?
