I can reproduce it currently with all my relationship fields in the admin – I have a custom post type called ‘Team Members’ and I am trying to relationship them to a page. When I got to a page, there’s no Team Members listed over on the right side.
If I set up the relationship to allow for searching, I can find team members that way and add them.
This is one relationship that had existed previously, and when a new one is created either for these two post types, or with another custom post type and page, the same thing happens.
I can try to list exact steps and screenshots tomorrow if this is still confusing, but sadly my work computer is not accessible at the moment.
