Hi mobile devs, I am noob to android studio and java, but have some c and c++ basic knowledge so not noob to programming in general.
However I am also noob to all aspects of form design.
I did not write title of Question singular because I'm pretty sure I'll have a few as I progress, so It's possible this thread might serve other android noobs.
I downloaded Android studio 4.6 but during installation downloaded patch/upgrade to 5.7.
My first question, which I'm not to certain how to term is...
In the activity_main.xml tab where I can see physical layout and design app front there appears to be a grid which things fit or snap to.
I have provided an image of when I try to move a button, there are 9 segments to the grid, and my button can only go in one of them....
I'm going to need more buttons than would fit, so how can I get rid of that grid so I can freehand (for want of a better word) my app front to wherever and whatever size I choose?
Apologize for long post but wanted to be verbose in case I'm not getting terminology correct.
Thanks for taking time to read and any help or tips is greatly appreciated.
