Invoice Description Formatting Cleanup

I feel like the invoice description formatting needs a tune-up. Everything is jumbled together and making an invoice from a number of tickets puts the ticket subject at the BOTTOM of the description and just merges it in with the last line. Its almost every, single, invoice I need to hand cleanup so that the invoice looks presentable and is easy to read/follow by the customer. It would also be nice for the list of pending ticket charges on the invoice screen were sortable by ticket OR date. Here is what I mean:

If I generate an invoice from a series of ticket entries, they come out like this:

   Ticket Work: Bob Smith Monday 07-11-22 03:30PM-5:30PM Deliver and installed Mary’s new computer
   Setup user account
   Tested printer connection
   Installed and tested check scanner

I feel It should look like this:

   Ticket Work: Bob Smith
   Monday 07-11-22 03:30PM-5:30PM

   Deliver and installed Mary’s new computer
   Setup user account
   Tested printer connection
   Installed and tested check scanner

Then it gets worse. Lets say you don’t roll a single ticket into an invoice and rather take a bunch of ticket entries and add them to an invoice.
They look like this:
   Ticket Work: Bob Smith Monday 07-11-22 03:30PM-5:30PM Deliver and installed Mary’s new computer
   Setup user account
   Tested printer connection
   Installed and tested check scanner from Ticket #1234, Subject Mary’s Replacement Computer

I feel It should look like this:(with Ticket # at the top separate line)

   Ticket #1234, Subject: Mary’s Replacement Computer
   Ticket Work: Bob Smith
   Monday 07-11-22 03:30PM-5:30PM

   Deliver and installed Mary’s new computer
   Setup user account
   Tested printer connection
   Installed and tested check scanner

Maybe my formatting is not the right way, but if the Invoice template had a little more functionality with a few more variables as options - people could adjust these the way they see fit.
