Found a bug in the properties of a given control when using Storyboards.  If you create a label (any control with a text field that is definable in properties is the same), switch the label text to "Plain", enter text in the field below and then delete all of that text the "Label Text" placeholder appears again.  From here you can enter more text that appears grayed out and does not display in your label.  In the attached image I entered the characters "sd" and the string "Label Text" appeared after.  If you move the cursor away from the box it returns to the string "Label Text" and the label remains blank.

I believe we've fixed this already and the fix is in the current alpha release. If you can still reproduce the issue in the current alpha please let us know and reopen the bug!

It is not in the current alpha release, but it should be in the next one.
