Thank you for the question.
This is a known issue and it will be addressed in our next version. Currently, we are in the process of migrating our themes to the new Theming Mechanism and the Desert theme is in the works.
Until this issue is resolved, you can use the themes provided in the attached sample project.
If you need additional assistance, feel free to contact me.
