Thank you for the reply.  I looked at your suggested doc management projects, however, for my company, I'm concerned document management would become fragmented and detached from part numbers as well as customers, and would create two places employees need to look for item related data.  I do understand your concern about the back up size issue, which over time would become significant.  The backup problem could be handled by a persistent cloud storage service through an API such as Amazon S2.  Perhaps an extension could be developed that could add the functionality to FA, but offload the document storage and backups, which would eliminate the FA backup concern.

Manufacturing companies have lots of documentation, such as technical drawings, and item specific documentation that needs to be managed in association with inventory items. 

I suggest adding the ability to upload documents associated with inventory items and the ability to add a description of the attachment and any associated notes with a link to view or download the attachment and to delete the attachment.  I imagine this as an additional "Document" or "Attachments" tab on the item maintenance screen.

I am getting the "Cannot download repo index file." on Bluehost/Hostmonster.  I have not been able to solve it.

I am getting "Cannot download repo index file." for setting up languages, extensions, themes and chart of accounts.  These functions worked before upgrading to 2.4.11.  I guess pointing to is a temporary fix, so I haven't tried it yet.  Is there an effort to address this issue by FrontAccounting developers?

I'm migrating from WebErp to FA mainly because of IT problems with WebErp on a shared host.  I really like how FA is organized more and its features, but I already miss a feature that was present in WebErp, which is customer special pricing. 

I'd like see a new link under the "Items and Inventory" tab, in the "Pricing and Costs" section.  The link/button would be called "Special Customer Pricing".

In that screen, there could be a customer lookup in a header, then  line items that include the item lookup, which triggers a default price in a text box that comes from standard pricing. The default could be overwritten by the user with the special price.  I would also include a text box for notes so users could make any special notes regarding the pricing.
