Sharepoint editform.aspx

I wanted to updated my editform.aspx but was warned to make a backup first which I did so I saved editform.aspx as editform_original.aspx.
 
I edited editform.aspx just the way I want it, went to my sharepoint list and clicked my edit button and it now loads editform_original.aspx.

how do I point this back to editfor.aspx?

I tried to re-produce this on my test site and cannot.  Mine does set it as the editform_original.aspx at first, but after I change it to editform.aspx it stays.  What is your permission level?  Permissions are always a good thing to check.  
You may just have to switch your pages - use the _original with your customizations and use the editform as the original.

In Designer, right click the list (in the folder list) > properties > supporting files > for the edit page choose the editform.aspx

try closing your web browser & SP designer.  Then open SP designer, check the page again, then open your web browser and try again.
If that doesn't work switch the supporting edit file to point to a different file, click apply & ok, then switch the file to editform.aspx, then click apply & ok.  Refresh your browser and then click edit properties again.

I have tried all of this and everytime I re-open it in designer it says that the file is editform_original.aspx I can not switch to another file.

That is interesting behavior.  Did you click save before closing?  Also, is the editform.aspx still saved in the forms folder of the list/library? or is it saved elsewhere?

Just wondering -- was it permissions or did you have to switch which form had the customizations?
