I have a list containing two separate content types - lets call them A and B

I want to have custom display forms, so that when a user clicks on an item they see appropriately formatted data.

In Sharepoint designer I can create a form and assign it to A and do the same for B. But I can't make the new form the default for just its own content type.

There's a 'make this the default form' button, but this makes it the default for both content types. Has anyone got any ideas?

I've found this old question:

Custom Form per Content Type

But I'm baffled by what it is attempting to do, and I've never used PowerShell.

You can specify links to forms separately for each content type in SharePoint Designer. Just select a list, navigate to a content type in the lower-left corner and setup links to custom forms: enter image description here
