Welcome to the QuickBooks Community, JKO.
Thank you for taking the time seek out our help.
For progress invoicing, you can edit the amount from the due column. This will adjust the quantity of the invoice automatically.
If you wish to edit the quantity, you’ll need to turn off the progress invoicing. Let me show you how:
Here's an article that provides a detailed steps on how to convert an estimate into an invoice: How to convert an estimate/quote into an invoice.
Keep in touch if you have any other questions about converting estimate to an invoice. I'd be glad to answer them for you.
At the moment, there isn't a way to change the quantity on an invoice that is linked to an estimate. What we can do, is to delete and recreate the transactions and manually reenter the correct quantity.
In the sample co, you CAN change the quantity on an invoice that is linked to an estimate. When you click Save you get the message: "The transaction you are editing is linked to others. Are you sure you want to modify it?". When you click Yes, it saves
Thank you for joining this discussion here in the Community, Malcolm Ziman.
I appreciate you for sharing this information with us. This will surely benefit other users.
I've updated and added some information above to give more details about changing the quantity on an invoice that is linked to an estimate.
You have a wonderful day.
Reviving because I'm running into this issue right now and the suggested solutions aren't working; Turning off progress invoicing in settings doesn't actually allow me to edit the quantities still. When I try to change the status of the estimate to pending, and then change the quantities in the estimate, it doesn't update the invoice to reflect the changes I made to the estimate, nor does it allow me to edit the invoice quantities still (and this is the case with progress invoicing on AND off, tested it with both settings).
I appreciate you sharing more information about your concern, @ellipse.
Turning off the progress invoicing feature will help you change the quantity of an item in your invoice converted from an estimate.
Since it doesn't work, have you tried the suggestion of Malcolm Ziman to change the quantity by clicking Yes on the pop-up message? If you haven't yet, I suggest doing it so.
If you can't still change the quantity, I recommend contacting our Phone Support Team. This way, they can further check on this matter and help you from there. They can also create an investigation ticket if other users experiencing the same.

I have tried to click yes on the "are you sure you want to edit this?" pop-up when editing the estimate, but even though I was able to change the quantity of the estimate, it would not actually change the quantities listed on the invoice.
I managed to work around the issue by creating a new invoice altogether with identical characteristics as the original, except with the updated quantities, and then deleting the original incorrect invoice.
