    I am applying a consistent theme to my app by doing this ThemeResolutionService.ApplicationThemeName = "Office2013Light";

    But, since that happens at run time, my designer still shows a different theme. How can I change the default theme that's being used?

    There is no quick solution to this. You have to drag the theme onto the designer and apply the theme to the form. Then can right click on the form and select to apply the theme to all controls. Sometimes it saves it for other forms but sometimes it loses it and you have to drag the theme onto the designer again.

    Hello guys,

    Thank you for writing.  

    Indeed, in order to apply the form's theme to all the controls at design time, you can right-click the form and select the "Apply current form's theme to controls." option. Please refer to the attached screenshot.

    I hope this information helps. Should you have further questions I would be glad to help.
