Customizing Buttons and Labels

I can't seem to change the "Englighten me!" text size. When I click on the text size field in the properties it's grey and doesn't let me edit the field.

I think this is the bit I used:

''Quote" I've just had the same issue with ADT 22.3 in Eclipse on OS X Mavericks.

Doesn't seem to be related to OS version, just open the view in the layout editor and change the Android version (next to the green Android robot icon in the toolbar) to a lower version and it should re-render the layout for a lower API Level and you should find it work fine. "Quote"

In the android SDK manager you can select to install other versions of the android SDK. I changed from version 20 to version 19 and that seemed to fix the problem.

Have a look here and see if anything helps you. I had this problem at first and I think this is the page that helped me fix it.


If it doesn't help, I can't offer anything else I'm afraid, I am new to this.

Hope this may help,


P.s P.s I think piyush arora is asking the same question is the forum thread (Properties of the button not changing), so keep an eye on that as well.

So how do I exactly install this?
