How to broaden the (invoice) from view in odoo?

Hello, I've been trying odoo for a while now but one thing I notice is that the form when making an invoice only uses about 70% the width of the screen it could use. There is a lot of space on the left and right which is unsused. This makes that the form is quite unclear.

Is there a reason why this is like this? Because other form-views don't have this problem.

Is there a way to broaden this?

Thank you

Ok, I found something that works: in the xml there is the tag <sheet string="Invoice">, I replaced it with <group> </group> and the problem is solved.

I hope this has no effect on other things...

I still wonder why this is implemented this way. It makes the form totaly unclear and very annoying to work with. Now with the broadend form is like a breath of fresh air...

 

It may have been designed that way to look like a printed report with margins. The last few versions of Odoo, they have been trying to make the reports look the same on the screen as printed. The nice thing is that it's opensource and you can edit the behavior of the product to your liking.
