Hi, Vahur! This is exactly what I've been wishing for, and the reason
I've been lurking here. Since you've broken the silence, I'll chime in.
I'm in the same boat - always creating invoices for the same 3-4
clients. It takes me about 10 clicks to get to the point where I can
perform my most-used task - add a line item to an un-posted invoice.
Sometimes I can leave some windows open, which helps, but not to the
point that it doesn't bug me.

I would offer to try to tackle this but GUI programming is not exactly
my thing.
