Hi Yoav, going to the Backend-> klicking “Sales"->selectin “oders"->selecting an open order->in the order view, I press the invoice button->when I press the lowest button"send invoice” the view is chainged back to the order and a message appears"invoice was succesfully created”...i use the german language thats why it can be that I missed sometimes the exact english phrase in my description, but I hope you can reproduce it

This action creates an invoice. You should see the invoice in the invoice tab after you submitted it. We will try and change the functionality so that you are redirected to the invoices grid.

Thanks

I just downloaded the new version and did a fresh install - there is no invoice printing functionality that i can see. When you navigate to Sales > Invoices there are no check boxes to select invoices and no ‘action’ menu. See attached screen shot.

The orders page has an action menu, but does not contain any option to print.

Maybe you just forgot to change the version number, but my install says Magento ver. 0.8.16100, but this is a fresh install of the version being offered for download on the site.

Hi,

I have a problem with pdf printing too, but a different one.
It looks like there’s a problem with encoding.
Here is the beginning of the error message:

Noticeiconv() [function.iconv]Detected an illegal character in input string in /home/mag/magento/lib/Zend/Pdf/Resource/Font/Simple.php on line 259

(...)

When text contains accents, i have the error.
