Hi all,

Is there a way to insert a newline in the description field of an invoice line? I tried ctrl+enter and regular old enter, but the system doesn't seem to support it. I have some items that need way more details than can fit on a single line.


Please be clear on your question.Is that invoice is in draft state or in Open state.?

You don't have to put the newline in a description field - OpenERP will do it on its own - it's a field of text type, so you will be able to put as much text, as you need.

I know I can put as much text as I want. However I need the description to continue on a newline (for the same account.invoice.line). For example: Package A, contains: - Item A (Dimensions) - Item B (Dimensions) ....

Enter under Google Chrome works fine.
