  1. When minimizing or increasing the browser window size, this text overlay text will not remain "locked" with the image unless the image is set to "default" position under the style menu. If the image is set to "center center" or any other positon setting, and you drag to minimize or increase the size the browser window, this text will slip out of the overlayed positon it was intended to be in. Can this be fixed or there something Elementor rookie that I'm missing?

  2. OK this is when you're using an image as a background. I'm trying to add text to an image. I can only put it at the top or at the bottom of the image. I want it in the middle left.

    1. Consider adding your text in the image with photoshop (or similar software) , if adding your image as a background (in a section, column, or inner section) is not an option!
