@UnionDesign, not sure if you’re still using ACF, but at least with the current version of ACF5 PRO, I have working Repeater Fields in Live-Edit. I am using some custom code to grab all the fields in a group however, so if vanilla isn’t working out for you (or anyone else who may find this) then you can check out the gist at https://gist.github.com/Daronspence/4ec625d1e371543dfa93
Hope this helps!
