New Invoicing - Reduce the amount of empty space on screen
Have less white space on new invoicing as it fills screen. The notes section which is in contacts 4000 chars make visable and editable on the new invoice page so we can see it whilst creating and invoice. We dont then have to keep jumping from one page to the next.

It's so spread out now with large font, it's hard to read and use. If I make the view smaller, then it makes everything else on the screen and browser too small to read - it's not user friendly. Please make it the same size font as the old format (or more compact) and viewable in one screen without the need to scroll. I agree with Sally's points and all points mentioned in the other comments too. Looking forward to a prompt review to save our eyes! Thank you and greatly appreciated, Tara.

Nuno I sympathise. I don't use Invoicing myself so much myself, but your Idea and Images are excellent points. The point about not seeing the Account Code is an issue throughout Xero. It's probably been there since Xero started 20 years ago. I wouldn't hold your breath waiting, but I have added my vote anyway.

I understand that the new invoicing system is being designed to be responsive and easier to use on mobile devices but it uses sooooo muchhhhh spaaceeeee on a desktop...
On the old invoice I have all the fields visible on the screen and can confirm that everything is fine (invoices are imported from a online store and need to be aprooved manually)
On the new invoicing I'm not able to see everything and have to click on different fields to make sure the value is the correct one
I really don't get why the new designs are all bloated and HUGE when what's needed is productivity.

Agree with Sally it takes up much more screen and I have to keep scrolling up/down side to side. A waste of effort..

To add Ive just noticed this new layout also takes more space vertically on an invoice so I now have to scroll to see the totals on my longer invoices but on classic view I can see everything without scrolling. Having that little bit of shading also helps direct the eye on classic mode and makes the info boxes pop more.
Sally Stubbs commented
Yes I prefer the more compact view. It helps the eyes focus and see the info quicker, now I feel we are all over the screen, perhaps Xero can keep the new layout but have a compact view option, all of xero seems to be going for this new landscape look, on this form it is not useful.

Every time I get an email from Xero saying an old system is retiring I cringe. Today I was right to do so with the classic invoicing retirement email.
There is WAY too much white space in new invoicing the amount of scrolling I now need to do on my laptop makes it very difficult to see and also keep track of where I am.
Also please have a way to disable Autosave or at the very least Undo changes . I just deleted 30 line items by mistake, no issue, just hit refresh and it will go back to the previous save. Nope, autosave made this permanent. Your auto generated help seems to think this is possible, but there are no options in my Xero to do so, so its obviously still not finished.
Finally to delete line items, now I have to click the 3 dots, then click remove. With all the white space your devs like to add, I'm sure they could fit a tiny little X in the column since there is only 2 options in that menu anyway.
Please ask your development team to spend a few weeks doing someone's accounts in Xero so they can see what a headache they turn this program into with every update.
