You didn't say what you tried to put into the field....  Also note that it will only affect new invoices.

Subject: invoice counter without leading zeroes

I'd like to use GC's invoices, but the new government rule is that they
have to formatted as follows:


which in practice could like: 1/bo1/bu1

and the numbering should go like: 1, 2,...,9, 10,...99, 100...

iow. no leading zeroes.

I'm trying to change File ---> Properties --> Counters --> Invoice
number format

but neither it changes - it's 000001 - nor does it produce some trace
to figure out what's wrong.

I use GC under Debian Sid (x86_64).

Any hint?
