What does your xml look like? It's possible that you set
tools
properties instead of
app
or `android`; those will only show up in the editor.

Should I delete
Copy code
xmlns:tools="<http://schemas.android.com/tools>"
?

This is the button in question, right?
Copy code
<Button
        android:id="@+id/addJob_button"
        android:layout_width="200dp"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:layout_marginBottom="32dp"
        android:background="@drawable/round_button"
        android:backgroundTint="#FC7E2F"
        android:fontFamily="@font/montserrat_bold"
        android:text="upload job"
        android:textColor="#FFFFFF"
        android:textSize="18sp"
        android:textStyle="bold"
        app:layout_constraintBottom_toBottomOf="parent"
        app:layout_constraintEnd_toEndOf="parent"
        app:layout_constraintStart_toStartOf="parent"
        tools:visibility="visible" />
Oh! Try setting it to an
AppCompatButton
instead of just a
Button
.
Specifically:
Copy code
<androidx.appcompat.widget.AppCompatButton
 ...
/>

Yay! Thank you so much! ­čśä
That solved the problem

That worked?
Awesome!
Yeah, this bit me once before, and it took forever to figure it out.
