Front End Editing a Joomal Article thats set to SP Pagebuilder

Featured Lock Resolved Bug
I am using Helix Ultimate, latest version and SP Pagebulder 3.4
I use JCE and its integrated in SP Pagebuilder.
I cannot see how to use front end editing.

I have a site where the client wants to use the an Accordian (SP Pagebuilder Addon)
I have made a new an article in joomla (3.9.1) named "Test" and added it to a category.
I have added a menu item thats using joomla Category List calling this category.

When i view the menu item in the front end there is a list of articles and "Test" is there.
To the right is "Edit Page" but when i click it, it opens in the normal joomla editor and not the SP Pagebuilder.

This is a new install and so far I cannot see how you can front end edit a Joomal article that set to SP Pagebuilder.

I see others have had the same issue and its marked by Paul as resolved yet i don't think it is.

Hi Colin,
You should see link/button "Edit by Page Builder" on front-end


Important Note!
Make sure that you saved an article with SPPB mode ON.

I have tried what you say and at first the "Edit with SP Pagebuilder" was not there,

On this site we do not login to the front end

At this point I used the standard ur domain/index.php?option=com_users&view=login and logged in and it appears

However in SP Page builder (back end), > pages, when you hover over a page name you get a button "Frontend Editor" and it uses the same login session.

The article list in Joomla should be the same.

Thanks for your help, i can at least now use it.

Have you read Important Note?
In Joomla Global Configuration > System > Shared Sessions: YES
it may help you edit without extra login on front-end, if you're on admin
