Modify sale order report PDF.

Hi ! I'm using Odoo v8.

When I try to print/send a sale order, my generated PDF is a mess.

Long descriptions overlaps with column titles.

So, I would like to edit the rml file, like back in OpenERP v7.

The problem is, I can't find this file anymore. Some help ?

In v8 the reports are replaced by Qweb reports. The qweb views you can find by going to settings/technical/reports/reports. Find the report and after that you see a link to the qweb view. This one you can change and the effect is imediatly.

And this qweb view is then used to generate the PDF ?

Sale Report is now an QWEB(HTML) report not an RML, you can modify in setting->Actions->Reports, search for 'Quotation' select the sale.order one, there you can:

  1. change the report type to HTML, print a quotation/sale, and edit it with the website editor.
  2. click in Search associated QWEB views, select the report_saleorder_document, and edit it.
  3. change it via custom module.

for more info go to the officual documentation:https://www.odoo.com/documentation/8.0/reference/reports.html

Thanks to both Felipe and Erwin !
