I have a couple different estimate styles, but whn i change one they all change. Why is it all of a sudden doing that?


Hello there, info,

Ideally, the customized form styles will not change if you're only editing one of your estimates styles. But if you made some changes on the standard form, it'll automatically update the rest of your templates.

This behavior is sometimes due to browser hang-ups which can be resolved by clearing your browser's cache. Let me guide you how.

If you're using Google Chrome, kindly follow these steps:

  1. Go to the More icon (⋮) at the top.
  2. Select Settings.
  3. Choose Advanced, then in the Privacy and security section, select Clear browsing data.
  4. Check the Browsing history box.
  5. From the Time range drop-down, choose All time.
  6. Check the Cached images and files box.
  7. Click Clear data.

For the detailed steps on how to do it using other browsers, you can check out this article: Delete or Disable Cache and Temporary Internet Files in your Web Browser.

Once done, you can customize each estimate that you're going to create by selecting the template you want in the Customize option below the form.

Please let me know if you have further concerns about sales form styles in QuickBooks. I'm just around if you need further help.

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
