Can't find Weight option in the Properties menu of the Linear Layout
As titled above, I cannot seem to find the weight option in the properties menu. It was supposed to be, in the video, above the Margins title, but in my version, I can't find it.

Some items have changed in the editor and are no longer available. You will run into these issues from time to time as the editors and Android are updated A LOT! Try not to get frustrated and come to the forms for some help. The best way I have found around this particular issue is to click the tab on the bottom to edit the XML directly and you can simply add this line:
Make sure the line is added between the
<LinearLayout> </LinearLayout> tags.
Hope this helps and Happy Coding!
