We're unable to customize the bill template in QuickBooks Desktop. This is why you can't see and create a bill template in the Templates list.
This would be a great option though. I'll share this idea with our Product Development team. It would also help if you can send them a suggestion from your QuickBooks company file. Just click on the Help menu and choose Send Feedback Online.
Feedback makes us aware of the options or features you need for your business.

We have frequently had our small vendors say, "go ahead and take that as a credit on your account". The vendors however don't create a credit memo to us so I must deduct the credit from the bill. True, I can create a credit but when I go to print a copy of the credit to give to the vendor...it is ugly! The format can't be changed. As I said, this is not a one time situation.
Allow me to chime in for a moment and help make sure that your concern is taken care of.
This isn't the impression that I'd like for you to be left with. Rest assured, I'm going to submit a feature request from my side, which is sent to the Product Development Team. They're constantly looking for great ideas from users, like yourself, when deciding how to enhance QuickBooks.
Thanks for your patience and understanding while we look into this. Please post a comment below if you have any follow-up questions. I'm always here to help you out. Take care and cheering you to continued success!
I'm sorry I didn't get back to you sooner. You may have already discovered this, but at this time there is no way to adjust the vendor's bill/credit template. In my case, a customizable credit template would serve me well.
