I'm using Advanced Custom Fields (3.1.5) and attaching it to a custom post type. I was startled when adjusting some values with my advanced fields that the editor for my custom post type disappeared.

I solved the problem very simply: On the Edit Field Group page, go to the bottom of the Options section and make sure 'Editor' is enabled in the 'show on page' options.
