      Im looking at a requirement where there would be 2 editforms for a list.

      The default one would be the standard edit form used to edit pretty much all the fields in the item.
      The second one is a specific form used in certain circumstances to update only a couple of fields.

      In my testing I have created a new Edit Form, called EditFormCustom, and it is not the default edit form. When I edit this form and add the two web parts, overlay and frontend, it goes through the motions of trying to run, and times out. When I click to close the overlay there is no DFFS setup button at the bottom of the form.

      Does DFFS have a restriction that only allows it to work on the default forms?

      This might not be the end of the world, because I am thinking that in order to do this type of thing with the restriction of only one editform, I could still achieve the same thing but passing a parameter to the form when calling it, that I extract from the URL and then expose the tabs that are required for that parameter.

      Would this be the correct/recommended approach to this scenario?

      Yes, DFFS works only with unmodified, out of the box forms, but your suggested approach should work. Let me know if you have further questions.
