I am trying to use the template to issue invoices for my business
but I want to change the currency to £, I can do it on the form but it still prints out $ where am I going wrong.
you need to change the display on the layout used for printing too. Try scrolling through all of your layouts in layout mode, and anywhere "amount" or "total" or any currency field is displayed, select the field and change the formatting for pound instead of $.
