    I'm having this same issue. Chrome console shows:
    Chrome console js error

    Here's a screencast of the Settings tab not loading:

    I found temporary workaround & code fixes for this. (As of 14 May 2019)

    If you click on the 'Code' tab first, you can then click 'Settings' and it will load.

    For a more functional fix, you can edit the plugin on your server. Looks like the builder.js file in the Meta Box Builder plugin is attempting to instantiate a new Clipboard object using Clipboard instead of ClipboardJS -- If you wish to fix it for now, you can edit the builder.js file as follows...

    Go to this page in your WP plugin editor:

    On line 550 you should see:
    clipboard = new Clipboard( '.mbb-button--copy', {

    Change new Clipboard to new ClipboardJS

    So the full new line 550 would read:
    clipboard = new ClipboardJS( '.mbb-button--copy', {

    Save the change, then go back to the Field Group editor and try it out. (You might need to close your old browser tab/window and re-open the page, and/or refresh your browser 5 million times for it to load the the updated builder.js file)

    Thanks a lot for your feedback. WordPress 5.2 added another version of the clipboard library into its core, which conflicts with the current version of the Meta Box Builder.

    I've just fixed and updated the extension and AIO. Please update.
