Why I can’t see the “Make Primary” button?

The button is displayed only when more than one category is selected, try assigning other categories to the post, as soon as there’s more than one category selected, the “Make Primary” button will appear.

Developers’ Notes

If you want to fetch posts belonging to a particular term you can use this:
if ( function_exists( 'epc_get_primary_term_posts' ) ) {
/**
* Assuming you want to fetch 10 published posts which have category ID 2
* marked as primary category
*/
$posts = epc_get_primary_term_posts( 2, array(
'post_status' => 'publish',
'posts_per_page' => 10,
'post_type' => 'post',
) );
}
