Symptoms


When the canvas properties and items are inherited from a source all the items are appearing as "rectangles" instead of the original objects.

The issue can be reproduced with the following steps:
1. Create a Form with a Canvas and add a text item.
2. Create a new form and inherit the properties of the canvas from the First form.
3. All the objects in the new form appear as rectangle.
