    I did 100% as you write. But it was still not working.
    I go inside C:\Program Files (x86)\GrapeCity\Spread.NET 12\Windows Forms\v12.45.20181.0\bin
    and find that the file was from november.

    I uninstall Spread.NET and remove the folder: C:\Program Files (x86)\GrapeCity.
    I then do the same as you write .
    Then it's success.

    Thanks for your help :)

    But I still have all the old problem with Spread.NET 12.

    I make some change in the spread designer, it's look perfect.
    when I close the form and open the form again all my change are gone.

    The screenshot I send before, still have all this problem.

    Spread Toolbox are not shown, I have to add manual. maybe have something to do about this?

    Unfortunately, we are still unable to replicate the issue at our end. Please have a look at attached video and machine configuration for the same.

    I have Spread.Net V11 and Spread.Net V12 both installed on same machine.

    It seems that the installation at your end didn't go well. I would request you to please uninstall older and all the versions of Spread from your machine and check no installed folders persist at installed locations and then follow the offline installation steps I mentioned above and see if it works for you.

    If in case it doesn't help then please share your exact machine configuration and architecture. We will look into the same thereon.

    Everything look good when I change with the designer, I save and open the form, textsize and background color go back as before.
