I'm very confused about the easier way to edit the invoice report. I'm testing with bitnami appliance of openerp 7 on VMware. I try the following ways:
1.- With the design editor: The package that download from the configuration wizard to install the oo plugin has no extension, I changed to .zip and works with oo 3.2.0 portable(Libreoffice 4 is not working with the extension). I can't connect to the server, always saying that the username/password is incorrect. I try with the username/password from the default user, from the database, but none worked.
2.- I install the webkit report engine, but there is no docs about what to do to use it. There is only an old video from openerp 6 and its not working for openerp 7. I supose that I need the invoice-report-webkit, download the code from trunk and try to install it, but is broken right now. Also, I cannot found any stable pack of the module for openerp 7.
The whole system its working well, but this problem its making me crazy... Why is so difficult to edit a simple report.
So I raise the questing. What is the easier way to edit invoice format?
I starting with the report design, like you. My situation was exactly the same.. The solution is to spend a small time with rml format understanding, and I edit the report with text editor.I use Geany to edit rml. In my opinion, this is only the way if you want to make a proper job.
I found a very nice tutorial: just google for "rml for idiots" (nice name :-) ) and this is can help you to create a very unique report, and the next step the full documentation reading/using/understanding to go deeply the report making procedure.
