I'm using Android Studio 0.8.6 (beta).
I'm trying to create a fragment using the "android.support.v4.view.ViewPager"

I get the following error when I'm in the design view of the fragment layout:
Rendering Problems 

The following classes could not be instantiated:
- android.support.v4.view.ViewPager (Open Class, Show Exception)

 Tip: Use View.isInEditMode() in your custom views to skip code or show sample data when shown in the IDE

Open in new window

I'm pretty new the Android thing and Android Studio.
I've been googling and have not found a solution that makes sense to me.
How do I correct this?
