    Umbraco Forms 10 Installing a macro?

    When installing a clean Umbraco 10 installation together with Umbraco Forms 10, I noticed that this Macro is being installed: enter image description here

    However, no file named InsertUmbracoFormWithTheme.cshtml is actually added to ~/Views/MacroPartials/. And despite the folder being empty, I can still run this piece of code to render my form:

    @await Umbraco.RenderMacroAsync("renderUmbracoForm", new { FormGuid = Model.Form })

    Why is that? What is actually running here and why can't I see it?

    Here's a screenshot of the database as well: enter image description here

    Hi Tobias, I am new to forms on v10 but I did read that the macro file is embedded as a static resource embedded in the forms dll. It does not exist as a file you can edit.

    Building on Damian's, answer its embedding these resources using a Razor Class library.

    You can override the file by adding a physical at the same path if you needed to.
