Delete test invoices

I have odoo 8 running locally.
I did create a lot of test invoices, just to test the PDF export, which was borking (missing header, footer and styling).
Now that I got everything running, I want to delete all the invoices and start from scratch.
I know I can cancel an invoice, but I want them deleted, so there is no trace.
Found forum topics talking about a account_cancel module, but it is not available under the local apps tab.
And apparently when I google this module, I find a odoo 6 version.
So how do I install it, if this is the way to go?

Many thanks!

Hello Tom,

Firstly the cancel invoice functionality is available by defualt in the Odoo V8.

In the invoice you have selected the Journal.

The selected journal has a field called "Allow Cancelling Entries". This field should be true if you wanted to cancel the invoice.

After the cancelling the invoice you need to click on "Reset to Draft".

Now the invoice is now in the "Draft" state and you can delete the invoice.




By default in Odoo? Hum... I think you must have account_cancel module to do that...
