    I recently installed the Q1 build and now my Properties window does not seem to be working.

    If I click on one of the ribbonbar controls either in the designer or in the Document Outline window, the control is NOT selected in the Properties window. In order to access a control in the Properties Window, I need to pick it from the drop down list in the Properties Window.

    Add this to on/off problems in selecting any ribbon bar controls in the designer and this has gotten to be almost unusable at design time.

    Do I possibly have something set/installed wrong that is causing these problems?

    Thanks for any help.

    Should I open some type of incident report for this?

    Hi Deborah,

    Thank you for writing.

    Indeed, I was able to reproduce this issue. However, I am not able to provide you with work around for it. Most (if not all) of the design time issues, does not have a work around. I have added this into our PITS system and we will try to address it in the internal build release, which we are working on. The release should be out sometime next week. Please follow this link in order to subscribe to the status updates regarding this issue.

    Here are some suggestions, that I hope will help you in the mean time. On my end, after reopening the designer, the only item that I can select (the hover effect appears on MouseOver) is the first tab of the ribbon. Once I click on it, everything else can be selected. Another approach is to select the ribbon (the control itself) then some other control on the form and then back the ribbon control. This should allow you to select the ribbon elements.

    I hope you find this information useful. Should you have any other questions or suggestions, do not hesitate to contact us.
