Rendering Problem. Missing styles.

+1 Kingsley Usen · January 13, 2016

I have tried everything I could to solve this rendering problem, but I can't seem to make it work. I keep getting this whenever I change the theme from "Project theme" to any other theme; holo light, holo dark, material dark, material light etc. 

Please can anyone help me out with this. I need it to enable the theme with a drop-down menu.

I was able to do this tutorial by starting with an Empty Activity.
Try this:
* Create an Empty Activity.
* Don't change the type of activity i.e. leave AppCompat
* See that little droid icon with 23 next to it. Change it to 21. API 21 used ActionBars.

I recall the overflow menu didn't show up in the preview but was there in the AVD.
