Fixing an Issue with Add To Placeholder Flag Not Displaying in the Sitecore Experience Editor

Over the last couple of weeks, several of my developers have come to me for help with figuring out why the "Add to Placeholder" flag was missing on some of their placeholders, in the Sitecore Experience Editor.

Sitecore "Editable" Checkbox Field Location on Controller Rendering Template

Each of the developers who came to me had the same issue: the "Editable" checkbox field on the controller rendering item that their placeholder lived on was unchecked. If this field is not checked, the "Add to Placeholder" flag is intentionally not displayed in the Experience Editor. As such, this should be the first place that you look if you are having trouble with a missing "Add to Placeholder" flag.
