Site Origin Builder in Articles disappeared on Wordpress 5

Dear Team,

Since Wordpress 5, a lot of bugs happened on Sydney Pro, and I discovered a new one today.

On my existing articles, 2 out of 7 only are under Site Origin Editor, the others not anymore…
How to get Site Origin Editor back on them?


Please find a screen copy of my wordpress admin showing the bug:


You can try to restore a backup if you have one that was made before update.

Also you can try to recreate your articles layout accordingly to this SiteOrigin documentation page:

Please feel free to ask any other questions that you might have.

Kind Regards, Roman.
