System reports should never be modified – make a copy of the existing system report and make changes to that copy. This ensures that reports don't become broken during upgrades. A warning will pop to screen that system reports cannot be edited.

Below are instructions on how to set up back of page text for invoicing, ie. have particular text printed on the back of the first page of invoices – there must be a duplex printer set up for this to work.



It is important to not delete fields/objects within reports – select the field, right click and untick Visible or colour the information white.
