InfoPath cannot generate a form template for the SharePoint list

Recently when trying to customise a list form with “Customize Form” I came across the following error:

infopath

The trick to resolving this was the message “Customizing the form for this content type is not supported”.  I was using a content type on the list which was pushed down from a centralised content type hub.

To resolve:

  • List settings
  • Select the custom content type you have attached
  • Advanced settings
  • Set “Should this content type be read only” to No

Now you should be able to edit the list form(s) in InfoPath.
