|Android Studio - Set custom fonts with asset manager in fragment|
I finally stumbled upon this: Load a simple text file in Android Studio
which points out the assets folder in Android Studio has apparently been
changed. Instead of its normal location in the root app folder (same level

Hopefully this helps someone else. I wasted a lot of time on it!
|Add sdk tools to path in Android Studio app|
You can add this folder to you PATH in .bash_profile (a hidden file in the

If you need an environment for all your UI apps, you can use the
.launchd.conf (or /etc/launchd.conf for all the users).
|Android Studio - IntelliJ No JDK found even though its installed and in path|
Have you tried manually adding the JDK to the default project
You can do this by choosing File > Other Settings > Default Project
Structure from the menu. The go under the SDKs heading and add the JDK by
clicking the green + symbol and choosing JDK, the browse to your JDK
folder. You can also add Android platforms here if needed.
Also, I'm not sure about this, but on my x64 system I use both a 64-bit and
a 32-bit JDK. Android Studio/IntellJ uses the 64-bit (in Program Files)
version to run, but my build uses the 32-bit JDK (in Program Files (x86)).
Not sure if this is required, but it might be worth a shot if you are still
having trouble getting it to work.

|Automatically versioning Android project from git describe with Android Studio/Gradle|
After some further reading and several false starts, I ended up with this,
added to the bottom of build.gradle in the project directory (that is,
MyAppProject/MyApp/build.gradle, not MyAppProject/build.gradle --
confusing, I know, but the former directory is projectDir in Gradle so
that's how I refer to it here). It depends on no external utilities other
than Git, which is assumed to be in the path, so it should work on any OS
(even though I used forward slashes in the paths, they get converted to
backslashes on Windows).
It could probably stand to be improved, I'm sure, as my understanding of
Gradle is pretty rudimentary and my Groovy may not be very idiomatic
(though that in particular is less of a concern). I have a feeling that my
approach is suboptimal because it involves generatin
|How to setup and test an Android Library Project with Gradle and Android-Studio?|

|Android Studio: Android Manifest doesn't exists or has incorrect root tag|
I ran into a similar problem. Looks like my .../src directory for whatever
reason moved under my .../lib directory. I moved it out of the /lib
directory. Now both /lib and /src are at the same level. After a couple of
clean rebuilds and restarts of Android studio everything is back to normal.
My emulator started up fine.
You might want to check your directory structure. Compare the directory
structure with a working project. You might be able to see the difference.
|How do I add the library android-support-v7 in IntelliJ IDEA (Not Android Studio/Gradle)?|
You just need to add "@string/abc_action_mode_done" in your

appcompat library".(In my case,"@string/abc_action_mode_done" already
exists in the appcompat/res/values/strings.I don't know why you miss it.)
"add depenency appcompat to mediarouter" is necessary.

|How to open android documentation and samples of code in android studio|
First you need to make sure the documentation is added to Android Studio.
Go to File -> Project Structure. Under the Platform Settings heading, add
or select an Android Platform. Go to the Documentation Paths tab and make
sure the path to your SDK's documenation folder is added there - it should
eference, where [SDK] is the full path to your SDK
installation. If it is not there add it manually.
Once this is done, use Ctrl+F1 while your cursor is on the item you want to
display help for.
The samples have not been ported to Android Studio yet, but I'm sure google
will get around to it at some point. For now follow the instructions in the
comments by androidika (you will need a copy of Eclipse installed).

|Is it possible to test In App Billing in an Android App connected to and running from Android Studio|
Except for the static purchase test items, you are generally no longer able
to test in-app billing features while in debug mode. You have to use a
release version of the app and complete the app setup on Play Developer
Console to do so.
So to answer your main question, while you can track the overall flow of
your purchase feature in debug mode on your app, you won't be able to test
a successful transaction while using the debugger.

to your build.gradle file.

|Import an Android Project from Eclipse to Android Studio and I have this error message "failed to find Build Tools revision 8.0.0"|
Your build.gradle is trying to use Android SDK tools 8 which isn't

If you look at your build.gradle file you probably have this line
buildToolsVersion "8". You want your build.gradle file to point to the
Android SDK tools that you currently have installed (preferably the
latest). Just open the Android SDK manager and see which tools you have
installed and change the buildToolsVersion "8" to the right version.
|Analyse performance of android app using Android Development Studio|
From Android Studio Tips and Tricks, on developer.android.com:
When you build and run your app with Android Studio, you can view adb
and device log messages (logcat) in the DDMS pane by clicking Android
at the bottom of the window.
If you want to debug your app with the Android Debug Monitor, you can
launch it by clicking Monitor in the toolbar. The Debug Monitor is
where you can find the complete set of DDMS tools for profiling your
app, controlling device behaviors, and more. It also includes the
Hierarchy Viewer tools to help optimize your layouts.
So, have you tried clicking on the monitor button? It looks like a little
green android. From there you can use all the regular tools.
