It sounds like you may want to use a Constraint layout rather than a Relative. So you may have to play around with the different layouts in text view.

There's a link here for instructions on converting a RelativeLayout to ConstraintLayout. https://developer.android.com/training/constraint-layout/index.html

Alternativively you may need to update Android Studio. :)
