can't edit text size in eclipse?

Whenever I try to edit the text-size(or any other property for the matter) in eclipse, the box simply remains gray and won't budge. What do I do?

Hey Jack,

A couple people have had this problem before with an older version of Eclipse. I searched the forum and here are a couple responses: https://teamtreehouse.com/forum/solved-cant-change-text-size-directly https://teamtreehouse.com/forum/cant-adjust-any-properties

Also, instead of using the graphical editor, you can learn the xml. It's not too bad: android:textSize="24sp"

I hope this helps!
