Hi !

It seems there are still incompatibilities between wpml and elementor pro theme builder:

- when using different headers for different sections using elementor display condition : if I use the 'child of a page' display condition : the specific header is displaying as expected in the main language, but not in the secondary language : so to make it work I had to manually add all the child pages in the display condition, where this header should be displayed and now it works in the second language...

- when I try to translate the footer, (when I add the english version of the footer with wpml) (footer which is the same all over the website), it seems to broke the custom headers : the Elementor headers disappear and are replaced by the Astra theme default header.
To make the header appears again, I have to trash the footer and to make a new one again just in the main language (french) (by copy-paste the content of the trashed one).

Here's the credential of a copy of the website, for you to replicate the bug/test it :

Also, I already contacted the Elementor support and they said to contact you, here's their answer :

" To provide some further details about this issue, if you are using a more specific display condition (for example assigning it to a specific page/post) other than entire site within the theme builder WPML does not retrieve the ID of the translated template which results in this issue for the secondary language(s).

Our senior customer support personnel has informed us that our developers have worked with the development team for WPML to resolve this issue which enlightened us on a final filter needed for WPML which was introduced in Elementor Pro 2.2.

Our development team has created a hook in Elementor for WPML to utilize to add compatibility for Elementor Pro but they have not utilized this hook up until this time.

I would recommend contacting WPML and making them aware of this to see if they have a possible solution available. "

please tell me that there's is a solution and if you planned to integrate this elementor hook !!!
