Hi @sns1,

It looks like text boxes have been missing on new items page. Have you referred to the source code of the .aspx page to verify if there is anything missing? Please check it in SharePoint Designer 2013.

To your second error, "Could not save the list changes to the server" appears when trying to create new form, let's verify the followings:

  • Is there any Lookup column or calculated column based on other broken columns in your list?

  • Try to clear SharePoint Designer 2013 cache to see if it proceeds. Reference: How to Clear Your SharePoint Designer 2010/2013 Cache.

  • Run command Get-SPFeature | Sort -Property Id -> Search for a Feature named Developer with the property GUID e374875e-06b6-11e0-b0fa-57f5dfd72085 -> Run the following command to disable the feature: Disable-SPFeature -Identity "e374875e-06b6-11e0-b0fa-57f5dfd72085" -Url http://sitecollectionurl.

@sns1,

Thanks for your instant response.

  1. Open the new item page in SharePoint Designer. Click Ctrl+F to search a column name, check if text box is included in a <td> tag.

  2. If there is a Lookup column in the list, check if the column connected to the Lookup column is existing and works normally.
