Default Form Missing - Stuck With InfoPath option

Occasional Visitor

Hi All,

I'm wondering if anyone has seen this issue and knows of a fix. I had an InfoPath form ties to a list and would now like to remove it and use the built in/default form. The problem is I  do not have that option in Form Settings anymore. The default has now become the InfoPath option!

  • I no longer have InfoPath installed
  • I attempted to save the site as a template and reopen in a new site to disassociate (did not work)
  • I have see the Site Collection option to Deactivate but seems like I may loose the associated list items (which is a dealbreaker) 

Any help is much appreciated!

I am running into the same issue. Did you find a solution?

@WorkHard I am stuck in the same frustrating limbo. Tried transfering the list to another subsite in 2013 to see if I could remove the content type nondestructively, but infopath is the only available option there, too. Not sure if I need to remove infopath as the form option to be able to transfer, or if it's hopeless. There seems to be no information out there on how to resolve this situation.
