FMX app has lost the Style Selector & the View Selector

Hey all. Another Delphi Mystery!

My FMX app (all of a sudden) no longer displays the Style Selector or the View Selector. If I open / create other FMX apps, everything is as expected.

Along with the Style & View Selectors not being visible, I have the added bonus of: When I right-click on any controls, the Edit Custom Style... and Edit Default Style... options are missing from the popup menu.

Before I re-build this app, does anyone have any thoughts?

Thanks.

Hello,

1. did you by incidence look at a TFrame? Because for TFrames the form
desiogner doesn't show at least some of those items (yes, there are
bugreports about this in quality.embarcadero.com which EMBT turned
into feature requests and for which you could vote)

2. If 1. is not the case it might do if you create a new blank FMX app
so that you get new project files, delete the auto generated
mainform and then copy over all your form and other units and add
them.

Greetings

Hello,

go to quality.embarcadero.com, use your EDN login to log in and enter
TFrame into the search box. Wade through the reports until you find it.
Click on it and then in the upper right screen area there's some link
for voting.

Won't look it up myself as it's too late already here.
