I'm currently creating a project for management of highway drains in QGIS which involves the recording the feature attributes and logging of multiple inspections against a feature. I have a layer for the highway_drains and a separate layer for highway_inspections, utilizing the RELATIONS function under project properties works perfectly for the Parent/Child relationship of highway drains to inspections.
I used the drag and drop designer for both layers to reference lookups and style the form. However in order to view/edit the inspections within the form for highway_drains, I have to switch the highway_drains layer from 'drag and drop' designer to auto generate. This results in the lose of the form styling for the highway_drains layer, namely the TABS and order of fields (lookups and field aliases are preserved), styling for highway_inspections is preserved.
My Question: How can I preserve the form style for highway drains?
I'm using QGIS version 2.8.2
