I've re-downloaded Studio (again) and I've added every SDK update using administrator sign in but I still seem only to be able to use the AppTheme or AppTheme,NoActionBar. Everything else gives me the following. Any input would be appectiated! (Material Light here.. Nexus 4, API23):

it says "Rendering Problems. Missing Styles. Is the correct theme chosen for this layout? Use the Them combo box above the layout to choose a different layout, or fix the theme style references.

NOTE: One or more layouts are missing the layout_width or layout_height attributes. These are required in most layouts."



It gives a link to Automatically add all missing attributes, but when I click on it, nothing happens.
It also has a link t Copy stack to clipboard, which gives the following:

java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: You need to use a Theme.AppCompat theme (or descendant) with the design library.

There's nothing wrong with your Android Studio; it's behaving as designed.
Android Studio automatically includes the android design library and android support libraries as dependencies of your app.
When those libraries are included, your themes have to be one of the AppCompat* themes.
It's not a problem, because the AppCompat theme resolves to Material theme when your app is running on devices with API >= 21, and simulates material theme on lower API devices.

If you are new to Android or its compatibility libraries, read http://developer.android.com/tools/support-library/index.html and http://developer.android.com/training/material/compatibility.html.
