Step to reproduce:
1. Create a iOS StoryBoard project in VS 2010
2. Open storyboard file and move to Properties window of default view controller.
3. Navigate across widget, layout and event subtabs.
In VS 2010, section heading in Properties window for different widget/controls appears blurred/greyed out and hence not
easily readable. Whereas in VS 2012, 2013 it is appearing correctly.
In Properties window, section headings should be readable and appear correctly.
Screencast for this:
I switched those labels to Bold instead of Semi-bold. That should help with non Segoe fonts like in VS2010.
Today, we have checked this issue with:
We are still getting this issue, section headings in Properties window for different widget/controls still appears blurred/greyed out in VS 2010.
Hence reopening this issue.
I did a bunch of styling fixes that makes the situation much better on the blue VS theme.
I have checked this issue with latest Xamarin for VS and VS 2010. Now, section heading in Properties window for different widget/controls does not appears blurred/grayed and these are easily readable.
