Hmm, no. An invoice with a total negative amount is still considered an
invoice by gnucash (2.6.x). The only way to generate a credit note is to
mark the radio button labeled "Credit Note" while creating a new
invoice/credit note (or while duplicating another one).
Unfortunately you can't revert this step other than reverting to a
backup from before you created this "bad invoice". What you can do to
make your balances match is this:
1. duplicate the credit note. In the invoice creating window that pops
up make sure to select "Invoice" instead of "Credit Note".
2. Post the newly created invoice
3. Unpost the credit note and optinally remove all its entries.
This should allow you to pay the new invoice correctly. You will still
have one unposted credit note in your books. That's visual clutter but
won't affect any of your balances. There is currently no way to delete
such invoices or credit notes. If you ever need to write a real credit
note (for any of your customers) you can recycle this unposted one.
