How to fix Elementor page after switching to default WordPress Editor

Imagine this, you have made a beautiful website for your client using Elementor. You hand over the site to your client. The next day the client calls you and says that the site looks completely messed up.

You visit the site and find out that the client switched backed to the default WordPress editor Gutenberg, while trying to edit the page. Instead of clicking on the button “Edit With Elementor” they simply switched to the default WordPress editor.

Now apart from the texts and images on the page, everything looks completely messed up. Before you give up all hope and start building the page from scratch, JUST STOP.

If you simply open up the page again in Elementor page builder, then click on update, it will immediately solve the issue. For some strange issue, even after switching to the default WordPress editor, it still holds the data from Elementor. Just make sure not to delete/edit anything while staying in the WordPress editor. Please watch the video below in which I explained everything clearly.
