How to&Answers:

When you use a vertical guideline, any view constrained to it should do it horizontally and same thing for horizontal guidelines.

In your case, your are constraining view_template_1 vertically to a vertical guideline so change this :

app:layout_constraintBottom_toTopOf="@+id/gL_right_margin"

by a horizontal guideline

Always check your layouts and make sure you add the proper constraint to a guideline.

Answer:

Try to remove plus symbol from referencing your guidelines. For example here app:layout_constraintEnd_toStartOf="@+id/gL_image_size_margin"
