    Hi There,

    I plan on overriding the Settings Pane by removing the Style and Text sections and then added 1 or 2 additional ones in their place. I'd like to maintain the functionality exposed in Home and Size however, just maybe re-arrange them (so my 2 custom ones are first followed by Home and Size). I can't seem to find a way to simply override the Settings Pane without creating a completely new Settings Pane (like in the MindMap example), can you help point me to an example of this or provide a suggestion on accomplishing this?

    Hi Tim,

    During Q2 2013 we worked on improving the style of the DiagramSettingsPane. It is now mainly consisted of TabControl with 4 separate controls SettingsPaneHomeControl, SettingsPaneStyleControl, SettingsPane
    SizeControl, SettingsPaneTextControl.
    For your scenario, you can simply override a hundred lines of Style and rearrange these tabs (or remove, add new ones). You can find similar approach implemented in our CustomSettingsPane sample in our XAML Git Hub repository.
    You can also check out our help article here.
    Please let us know if this helps you proceed further.
