I have a list with content types enabled. Each content type has it own set of columns. The default display, edit, new forms haven't been tampered with. When I create a new edit form in Sharepoint Designer 2013, I've found that when I specify the content type in the advanced form options I get two outcomes. Sometimes I get just the fields for that content type. Other times I get all the fields in the list and have to manually remove the un-necessary ones.

I've tried this by creating a site level content type and a list level content type with the same results.

Does anybody know if this is normal behaviour or a bug or if somewhere along the line I've changed something in the list or the content type that causes this?

Thanks in Advance.

Please check your default content type. On creating new item, by default it will show columns that are in your default content type.
