i have the Ribbon in a UserControl, which i place programatically on the form.
Works fine.

But having troubles adding a BackstageView to he Ribbon located in the UserControl.
Designer does totally weird things.

If i put the Ribbon itself on the Main Form, everything is fine.
Designer works like a charm creating the Backstageview.

But i need to have my ribbon in a Control.

Any idea how this might work?
