Stop putting the entire base64 encoded PDF in the invoice docs

The docs are incredibly slow to use. I suspect one of the reasons is the gigantic base64 encoded PDF file that is getting parsed by your syntax highlighter.

Hi @ruffrey

 

Thank you for your input.   We are aware of the slowness of the api doc and working to improve it.

Re: Stop putting the entire base64 encoded PDF in the invoice docs

Thanks. Now I'm seeing two entires for POST /object/invoice, and the docs for retrieving an invoice are gone. The sidebar nav shows Retrieve Invoice, but it links to the second Create Invoice.

Scratch that. Looks like Retrieve Invoice docs are back...

@ruffrey, thanks for bringing this issue to our attention. 

The gigantic value of the Body field has been updated. The changes will be uploaded to Dev Center with the next version of YAML file in mid-July. Thanks!

Thanks. I just want to confirm that you are *only* changing the documentation to not display the huge `Body` attribute, right? We rely on that field in our system.
