I've been using GC for several years and only started using AR this Spring.  My preference is to use it as shown by your aging report.  So far, my efforts to use a credit to pay a bill has been a dismal failure even when I make a cash payment and try to get both invoice AND credit.  I'm currently on 3.6 on Win 10.
