Android Build a Weather App (2015) Hooking Up the Model to the View Using Butter Knife for Views

Full Stack JavaScript Techdegree Student 4,646 Points

Cannot find symbol class InjectView

Like the title says, that annotation doesn't seem to want to compile. I was using the latest version of Butterknife at the time of this writing (version 8), and also tried falling back to version 6 as in the video, but that didn't work either.

Am I missing an import? I've tried clearing the build cache and rebuilding with Gradle with no success. What else can I do?
