    Hello Telerik support,

    I am using Office2010 themes (black, blue and silver) wth RadDock. There seems to be a problem when one want to dock a window under another with these themes: instead of docking under, it docks overs as if over the tab icon instead of the down arrow. There seems to have no problem on Right, top and left arrows. With other themes, I did not see such issue.

    Tell me if this is not clear (it is not easy to explain).

    Hi Amand,

    Thank you for writing.

    I can confirm this is an issue and I have added it to our Public Issue Tracking System. You can track the item for status changes and add your vote for it here.

    To work around this issue you can manually edit the Office2010 themes. Here is how to do that:
    • Extract the predefined themes 
    • Open the Office2010Blue theme with Visual Style Builder
    • In the control structure window select RadDock - Docking Guides
    • Expand DockingGuidesElement and select BottomImage
    • In the Elements window expand DockingGuidesElement and set filter to changed properties
    • Change LocationOnCenterGuide property to 45;90
    • Save the theme and use it in your application

    The attached image illustrates the steps I took.

    Here are some topics on how to work with themes:
