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?

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.

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?

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.

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