Why can't I edit this child component in CMS cockpit?

There is a "JobVacancyContainer" component we use on a website, This component includes "JobVacancy" child componentes, which are the actual job descriptions.

Editing the component in CMS cockpit works as expected;

Editing JobVacancyContainer

But, there is no option to edit the actual job description component.

Editing JobVacancy

How can I add this, so we can edit that as well?

The editor areas are as follows:

JobVacanciesSectionComponent:

 <group qualifier="editorial" visible="true" initially-opened="false">
     <label key="config.general.editorial" />
     <property qualifier="JobVacanciesSectionComponent.headline"/>
     <property qualifier="JobVacanciesSectionComponent.vacancyGroups"/>
     <property qualifier="JobVacanciesSectionComponent.anchor"/>
 </group>

JobVacancyContainerComponent:

 <group qualifier="editorial" visible="true" initially-opened="false">
     <label key="config.general.editorial" />
     <property qualifier="JobVacancyContainerComponent.headline"/>
     <property qualifier="JobVacancyContainerComponent.vacancies"/>
 </group>

JobVacancyComponent (this is where I need to get somehow...?)

 <group qualifier="editorial" visible="true" initially-opened="false">
     <label key="config.general.editorial" />
     <property qualifier="ParagraphComponent.headLine"/>
     <property qualifier="ParagraphComponent.anchor"/>
     <property qualifier="CMSParagraphComponent.content" editor="wysiwyg"/>
 </group>

    Apparently it's not possbile from that screen. What works, however is using the ContentEditor slideout at the bottom of the page, as that shows the child components:

    I might be wrong, but answering this with my wild guess.

    Does the user logging in to WCMS Cockpit have "Read" and "Change" permission to the type?

    You faced such issue because pop-up overlap for cockpits is disabled by default.

    To fix the case just add the next property (where part before first dot is the name of the cockpit) cmscockpit.default.popUpEditor.allowOverlap=true
