Currently you have the ability in System Settings > Additional Options to have an Invoice Number & Credit Note Number Seed. This ensures for financial reporting that your data is accurate as an Auto generated number based on the Prefix & Padding applied in the System Settings is attached to the correct Transaction.
When creating a Receipt however, the Receipt Number box is a "Text Field". This should be the same set up as the Invoice & Credit and been in a Seed, that is not editable. Text Field means room for error based on human entry and does not follow any formula or process has to how the data is recorded (could have multiple transactions with the same number, or not following the same Naming Rules as other Invoices of the same nature).
Believe that if Receipt Numbers were handled similarly to Invoice & Receipts this would be a great improvement.
