Hello All,

 

I am trying to hide and show column in SharePoint Online document library.
Show or hide columns in a list or library form

Show or hide columns in a list form | Microsoft Docs

 

However, I cannot see "Edit Form" option on the Information Pane in SharePoint Online document library. Please see the attached screen what I am trying to say.

 

The normal screen which has the Edit Form option:

My screen which has no Edit Form option:

 

SharePoint-2.png

 

 

Lookin forward to hearing from you.

 

Thanks in advanced.

@nnkayaThe method has changed over the last year or so and you can edit the columns in a list form by clicking new (for a new item) then selecting the pen & paper icon in the top right:

For a document library click the 3 ellipses next to a document in the library, click on More then on Properties and you'll see the same pen & paper icon to edit the columns on the document library form.

Hi @RobElliott 

 

Thanks for your reply.

Unfortunately the Edit Form option is still not there.
Based on your instruction please see screenshots.
