In lists it is possible to customize the form with InfoPath. For libraries this function is missing.

Is there any way to use an InfoPath form to edit data in a library? I know that it's possible to display a form as an additional web part (Library -> Customize Library -> Form Web Parts), but I couldn't figure out a way to actually submit data to the library within the form.

My aim is to start a designer workflow with the data entered in the InfoPath form.

    Short answer is - no, you cant modify the forms for a document library. I think however that you can create one with code. – Christoffer Sep 22 '15 at 11:29
  • Is there a reason for this, which I should know of? As I didn't touch code with SPD, yet: Is it possible to create a similar functionality with it (in regards to rules, cascading dropdowns etc.)? – wheeler Sep 22 '15 at 12:07
