We’ve also got a great selection of pre-built Xero templates for all to use.

I worked most of this out before watching the video – i just didn’t answer the questions I had on things I wanted to change on my docx. There needs to be something inbetween invoice branding and this.

With which software I can customize templates?

@samuel, as far as I know, you can only use MS word to do the templates

First thanks to Shawn Smith for great template!

Secondly I want to replace flimsy blue link – pay now to something bigger. PAY NOW big red button. How I do it? I want this button to link to paypal. Can I put it whenever I want or it has to be in footer?

ive been trying to change some of the fields in the tax part, where i want to only show the tax rate name and not the vale, but it keeps returning it as «TaxRateName» rather than the name, i used it through the merger field, but still does not show

I am working on a Mac and having great trouble. It will only open as a preview and when I move over my image I can never create a file smaller enough for it to save?

Not an advert but Freshbooks Invoices are much much more professional. I have been looking at moving to that platform simply because the look and feel of the invoices are so much better. Please can you improve the invoice functionality and feel in Xero it is all people outside of Xero see of Xero and of our company and would it would be great if they were as professional as freshbooks!

+1 request for improving the visual customisation options for invoices. The ‘view online’ invoice is passable but the exported pdf is horrendous, not good enough for me as a designer and I’m guessing many others that care about the details.

We are in the automotive industry and transferred to Xero from Quickbooks. Honestly I am a little disappointed. Our invoices are struggling to cope with the information we need to supply on our Invoices and no simple way to add more information or customise. Now I have unprofessional invoices and little information how to make them better for use.
