Where is the Text (Large) control


According to the tutorial, to make my first "Hello Android" App, I should drag a Text (Large) control From the Toolbox (the area on the left), onto the design surface. The screenshot shows it in a "Form Widgets" group.

I do not find any control named like this and actually no "Form Widgets" group.

Searching the keyword "text" shows a number of controls in many other groups : see the screen copy.

Am I missing someting ? Or should I choose another control ?

Thanks for help.
