Rendering problems usually occur when the preview level doesn't match the code.
1. get the latest updates.
2. The Activity and the Styles need to match.
3. These tutorials were written a few years ago. Stick with whatever Android Studio gives you from a template.

you can add new widgets in the component tree by draging the widgets to grid layout
this is the only solution i have and if someone got better please do share

This happens when your designer is set to a higher API than the API level you are targetting. Try adjusting it to something lower like API level 15 from the designer view
