When using the shortcode (example {field34}) for a field in the Article editor text area the field content is not showing on the front end.

I entered the fields manually and also used the dropdown and selected the field from the list.

Is there a setting that designates when field short codes should be rendered or am I missing something?

Yes indeed there might be a couple of reasons for that. But the main one I see in your case is that you might have not enable the content plugin for fields plg_content_fields. Here is a screenshot:
