I've noticed strange behaviour of bar manager in MDI scenarion. It seems, that LoadDesignerBarState method acts strange in MDI scenario when a child with it's own tool bar is opened.
A sample application is easily achieved from Syncfution XPMenusMDI sample. Open project, add a button or toolbar item which calls LoadDesignerBarState method. Run it, make sure that at least one child window with custom menu is opened, and invoke newly added button. Menus will organize into strange toolbar tree, where each tool bar will be in seperate row.

As stated in the help, LoadDesignerBarState method applies only to the toolbars in the MainFrameBarManager not the ones in the ChildFrameBarManager.
Regarding the strange behaviour that you state, what we notice when we invoke this method is that the toolbars of the Child menus are arranged above the ToolBar of the Main Menu and we are looking into fixing this right away.
