modifying templates

- 09/21/2015 10:19:43
Hi Guys,

I'm new to odoo, trying to get a development platform up and going so that I can work on a mobile app .

I have installed Odoo8 on Debian, it runs great. I can't seem to find any way to edit templates, for example, the invoice template, if i wanted to move the address, or in the romanian localisation that I loaded, there is an error in the template where the first line of the customers address is nor printing in the invoice.

There appears to be three routes, from my googling, to fix this:

1) Find how to change the default print type from pdf to html, and edit the html
2) Install qweb, and use that to edit, which I did, but i only get an edit option on the website portal and not on the invoices.
3) Go to the server directory, find the xml file, and hand edit that.

Am I hitting this limitation because I've opted to use the community edition or am I missing something really simple to edit the document templates / layouts?
