Thank you for writing.
Indeed, currently you cannot set specific to the RadForm properties at design-time, since the changes will not be serialized. This issue will be addressed in one of our next releases.
For the time being, the workaround is to set the properties in the Form_Load event handler.
I updated your Telerik points account for the report.
All the best,
