    We have recently upgraded our org chart (based on Telerik's 2012 sample) to the 2013_3_1320 version. We are using the no-xaml libraries because we have our own custom theme. (Our theme is basically the Windows8 theme with just some color tweaks).  Our org chart uses custom shapes. After upgrading, the custom shapes do not render. Only the class name is displayed (see attached screen shot). Everything else appears to work. 

    Are custom shames supported in the Windows 8 no-xaml libraries? If so, any suggestions on where to look?

    Hi Tony,

    From your snapshot it seems that the Style for the Shapes is not applied correctly. Do you use custom Style for your DiagramShapes ? If yes you will probably need to base it on like so:
    <Style TargetType=RadDiagramShape , BasedOn={StaticResource RadDiagramShapeStyle}

    On the other hand you can also check the contructor of your custom shapes for the following line:
    public class MindmapRootShape : RadDiagramShapeBase
            public MindmapRootShape()
                this.DefaultStyleKey = typeof(MindmapRootShape);
    Also we also need to know whether you use ShapeStyleSelector because we recently found the following issue.

    If none of these helps, is it possible for you to send us an isolated sample that we can  investigate and advice you better ? Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
