Vertical Constraint Widget Issue

    I'm using Android Studio Bumblebee | 2021.1.1 and I'm having an odd issue when dealing with the Constraint Widget. If I create a new project and open the activity_main.xml layout, then select the default "Hello World" TextView and try and make changes to the top margin or bottom margin values, they don't seem to change. When I click on something else and go back to the TextView the values will revert. I think it's probably a bug but I wanted to see if anyone else was having the same issue?

    I had the exact same problem. Seems to be a bug with this version of Android Studio. The solution I chose was to uninstall Android Studio entirely, then go to the link below to install an older version without the bug. I installed 4.2.2, which doesn't have this issue. Hope this helps.

    I was able to uninstall Android Studio and then install Android Studio Arctic Fox | 2020.3.1 Patch 4.

    This does seem to resolve the issue I was having but if I try to open my project I get the following error "This version of Android Support plugin for IntelliJ IDEA (or Android Studio) cannot open this project, please retry with version 2021.1.1 or newer." If I create a new project, I don't have issues.

    I tried to create a new project and migrate my files over but then I ran into Gradle issues. I may just reinstall 2021.1.1 and adjust the margin settings in the layout code view and hope it gets fixed at some point.
