Invoice Number Sequence skip a number after invoice cancel, reset to draft and validate

hi guys,

I'm testing Odoo Version 8. When I cancel an invoice, rest it to draft and validate it again the Invoice number skip the  Sequence and loose one number. 

For Example If I cancel invoice n. SAJ/2016/0008, than reset invoice to Draft state and validate it again I get Invoice n. SAJ/2016/0009. On number is lost. I do not think this is the correct behavior.

Even if I force the correct number using force invoice number, the following invoice number proposed by the system always skip one number.

I have to go to Setting / Sequences / Sequences / Sales Journal to recover the number.

Thank you for your help.

Hello Edser,

thank you for your reply. I tried to set it both way Implementation: Standard and no gap. The problem is not solved. I have account cancel installed to cancel the invoice.

Hello Max,

Try changing the sequence implementation to No Gap. It's weird how it's behaving because even on Standard I don't have that issue and as you're only testing Odoo I guess there's no one else but you giving input to the system but give it a try.
