Uhm.. Mono comes with it's own forms. You CANNOT modify pre-existing windows forms.. forms.. in Mono. If you want to change them you either have to do it by hand (modify the .cs files directly), or recreate them using the Mono Forms (which is modeled after the Android style forms (horizontal / vertical layouts, to which you put in controls)).
