  • Question

  • In the Developer Preview I was able to set the designer to the light theme by using using the Platform pane -> Themel. I cant find this panel in VS11 beta, nor any other place to set it to use the light theme in the designer.

    Where can i set this?

  • I have tried this setting but it doesnt seem to change the designer layout. Its still using the dark theme even with this setting set to Light.

    *edit: I Think we are talking about different things. Im trying to get the design-preview to use the light theme so i can see what the app will look like in the designer. Perhaps i was not clear on this. The platform panel allowed me to do this but now im not able to find this setting.
