I need help with render library...

Hi everyone, and thank you for willing to help. Searched everywhere for this and can't find a solution for intellij so I decided to ask for help here.
So here's the error message whenever I open the Design xml: "This version of the rendering library is more recent than your version of IntelliJ IDEA. Please update IntelliJ IDEA (Details)". I have the latest IntelliJ and the error appeared after I installed some new versions of Android SDK Build-Tools with SDK Manager. I tried removing all the new versions of that but the problem remains. I found a solution for Android Studio where you force the ide to use a specific SDK Build-Tools version, but can't find how to do that on IntelliJ. Any help would be appreciated and please keep in mind that I'm a noob, have patience with me :D Also, sorry for my English...

Here are the Details, next to the error:

Please attach a screenshot from Android SDK Manager showing which build tool versions are installed.

What Android platform version do you target in your app?

Here's the SDK Manager screenshot: http://gyazo.com/2c4a88fced050a3fd0d7ab143b400674
Not so sure about the targeted version, is it in the AndroidManifest? http://gyazo.com/162a0edfeed453ff90d45683af37add9 or is it in project.properties? http://gyazo.com/18a84e23f87edc6bf0a9f2db3e5d6203

I've asked the responsible developer to look into it. The issue is already logged at https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/IDEA-141233 .

So this means they're working already to fix the issue? Any idea how long will it take? Also thank you for your time :D
