that works indeed. I just had to use "BorderPane" as fx:root type 
attribute value instead of my derived class which SB cannot know about.

What about my other question as to how custom controls can be used in 
Scene Builder? Can I add them to the library, and would it pick up any 
new properties on the right hand side of the SB window? Or, is it 
possible to just manually edit that part of the FXML but still use SB 
for the rest of it?
