IMHO the best way to accomplish what you want is to forego the "Print"
button from the invoices and instead just leave your set-up invoice
report tab open and just re-select the new invoices as you need to.

I.e., run the report.  Go into the Report Options and turn off the
Action and Tax columns, Change the text in the notes field, etc.  Then
on future runs you just need to go into the options and select a new
invoice to print.

Hope this helps, even if it's not exactly what you probably wanted to
