I'm, quite unsuccessfully until now, trying to change sharepoint's default forms. Well I can create/change and set another form to be the default and that's where my success ends.
When editing a site with designer, I try to make a new edit form and all seems to go well up to the point where sharepoint practically ignores the from. Aside from the fact that in the "new" from I see thrown in all the columns of the content type's group I chose, when I edit that no changes appear. Worst even, in the preview it seems nothing that appeared in the editable section of sharepoint designer appears. When I click edit on some content I get the "original" edit form where all the columns in the group of the content type's columns appear.
My intial intention was to hide some of the fields as the form was way too populated(no can't just remove those fields or set them to "hidden" as it appears if I do they never show up in any form or list from that point on).
Is there any way for me to edit the default edit from(yea cause I still want the dropdown list with the content type selction the default list has)?
Thank you very much.
