There is work under way to prevent this.  I'll be opening a LP ticket very soon.

It's certainly finicky, but should work with a correctly formatted MARC order record, complete w/ copies, quantities, prices, funds, locations, owning libraries and a provider field mapping.  More work and testing is under way here as well.

This is no longer the case in 2.2.  A summary of the lineitem appears along the top of the copies page.

> When searching for PO or Invoice in the list, there are no page numbers so it is hard to navigate. If you go into an item on any page after Page 1, and return to the list, the system takes you back to Page 1 every time.  THIS IS ALSO EXTREMELY ANNOYING.

Work is under way to resolve this.  LP ticket pending.

> Functionality that allows selected items in a PO to be taken across to an invoice at the same time would  be good.  At present you can take all at once or only one at a time.


Thanks for bringing these to the list.
