Eclipse Android Plugin Graphical Layout Not Showing Anything

I'm using the ADT plugin and have a problem that the layout doesn't show anything; I can't drag and drop and the manual add to the XML doesn't display a thing.

The message "This version of the rendering library is more recent than your version of ADT plug-in. Please update ADT plug-in" is displayed at the bottom of the graphical layout window.

I have Android SDK API 25 and 23 installed; all updates applied; eclipse Neon 2. JDK 8 installed and 1.6 compliance selected for project.

I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the ADT plugin. The plugin shows V 23.0.7 and I tried selecting that in the layout window (also tried V25).

I also followed this post to no avail Similar Problem

Now Android Studio is the official IDE for Android. ADT 23.0.7 is the last updated build tools. Are you aware of this? Also, try changing your Android SDK API from 25 to 23.
