register_post_type and show_in_rest issue

If show_in_rest parameter is false in register_post_type, classic editor is the default editor when you are trying to create a new post on that post type and there is no option to select gutenberg.
I have not installed classic editor plugin.

This is expected behavior, the Gutenberg editor requires post types to be available in the REST API in order to function.

As mentioned above, the Gutenberg editor requires the REST API in order to work. Post types that are not to be shown in REST cannot be used in the Gutenberg editor.
