  • Hi Gelo123,

    According your description, my understanding is that you cannot edit this form using InfoPath.

    For this issue, I need to collect some information from you.

    How did you open the form?  Did you open the form by clicking on ”Customize Template”/“Edit Template” in the SharePoint list/library?

    Have you published it to a list/library?

    We could click on “Customize Template” button under List tab on the ribbon to edit the form for the list. And to edit forms for the library, we could open up the Library Settings page, and under Advanced settings, clicking Edit Template.

    Please provide more details and some screenshots about this issue for troubleshooting it.

    Best Regards,

    Linda Zhang

  • Hi Gelo- did you download it and then try to edit it? If not make sure it's not set to read only. See screenshot:
