Text field fills the entire View Controller

Hi all,

When I drag a Text Field onto the View Controller it fills the entire "screen". In the video, it appears like a text box should.

I'm unable to add a second Text Field as one cannot sit on top of another. I can't see where I can resize it.

Any ideas?


Deleted everything and started again - now works fine. No idea what I did wrong!

I am having this problem as well. how do we fix this without deleting everything?
