I am trying to publish a List form in Sharepoint 2010 which I have done and just trying to enter in some text as a description to a fields function. When I publish the form there is a field I would like to have radio buttons and to get that to work I have to go to "Form Options" and change the default selection from "Modify the existing Infopath Form" to "Use the default Sharepoint Form". When I do this the form displays as I would like it to but all the text that I add to the fields describing their function disappears and I am left with only the fields themselves.

I am fairly junior to Sharepoint so any help would be appreciated.

  • I wish I could as I have already tried this but when trying to use Sharepoint designer is returns the message that editing the site with SharePoint Designer has been disabled and cannot be used. I cannot contact my administrator, it just inst possible.

Look at editing the form in SharePoint designer instead of InfoPath.

Once you have the site open in SharePoint designer, navigate to the list and there will be a section for "Forms" with Display Edit and New forms available for editing.
