When i created a new project on Android Studio 1.1.0,
it gives up this error
The following classes could not be found android.support.v7.internal.widget.ActionBarOverlayLayout"
Now i have searched about this on google, and i found possibly 2 solutions given by most of the people.
1. Either change the api (from preview window pane) from 22 to 21, or
2. Change the App Theme from "Project Theme" to any other theme.
Doing these things, removed the error. But I feel that these are not the permanent solutions, the Second step seems just like a temporary workaround. I have doubts about the First step also, that if to remove the error, we change api from 22 to 21, then at the end, our app wont work in Android 5.1.1(API 22), it would be restricted to Android 5.0.1 and below only (API 21). Are my doubts valid?
