update WPBakery Page Builder when bundled with theme

Hello I just updated to Wordpress 4.9 - and now have all sorts of issues with the WPBakery Page Builder .
I use The 7 Theme

I received an update notification fromThemeforest for this theme
But the new version doesn’t change anything

do theme updates include page builder update?
If not, what is the solution considering I do not want to buy a separate licence for WP bakery page builder?
thank you


You’ll probably want to reach out to the author of the theme. They may have an update in the works. Their support info is here - https://themeforest.net/item/the7-responsive-multipurpose-wordpress-theme/5556590/support


agnesdew, for your convenience, this question is clearly answered/explained in the WPBakery Page Builder itself - once you open a WP dashboard and go to WPBakery Page Builder, it will display a super bold notification about updates when item is bundled with theme. You can’t miss it!
