Unfortunately, the nice plugin stopped working after updating Elementor to 3.22. Just two hours later the issue was fixed. Great!

This is an essential tool if you use Elementor and any Elementor add-ons. It provides functionality that I wish Elementor had by default, but this plugin is the best plugin for Elementor that I’ve come across in ages.
