I have made a decision to begin moving all of the post content into the Gutenberg block editor and abandon most Avada features in a post. The reason for doing this is two fold: first, I need to learn the ins and outs of the editor, and second, this is the future of WordPress.

I am of the mindset that WordPress will force all theme developers to move to the block, or be left behind. The full site editing capabilities that will be finalized later this year (2021) is a major shove in that direction. Honestly, the block editor is terrific and provides a great deal of functionality that would normally require plugins and themes and it gets better with each release. Now If I can just figure out the styling within the confines of Avada .
