I have a number of TabControlAdv controls in my winforms project. 
It is set to TabStyle = TabRenderMetro
I set the Active Tab color and Inactive Tab color using the smart action on the control and it works correctly.
When I close the vs project and reopen it the active tab and inactive tab colors also reset to
I have tried it with both Themes enabled and disabled. 

If I build the application when I have set thte colors, the applications keeps the colors.
I am using .net 4.5.1 with control version
This has happen consistently in Visual Studio 2015 and is now happening as well in Visual Studio 2017.

How can I get the colors to persist in this control in design?
