Just until now I remember this problem.

The most easy and logic (I think) solution, is make to PC use a different 
extension for each type of project. This is the BIG problem with PC. Other 
document based apps (Ink and Gorm) works perfectly with native panels and don't 
require changes, and you can switch the theme without problems. The changes I 
did in WinUXTheme achieves this. With PC the native panels don't have idea 
about how handle the differents documents because all use the same extension. 
So, for this reason PC needs special tweaks.
