I hardly see anything when I insert the shortcode.

Hello, I have a problem that has been going on for several days. When I am editing the page where I insert the shortcodes to add my exercises, at the moment of inserting the shortcode I can hardly see anything, just a very fine line that is difficult to find. I create pages where I insert many exercises together and it is quite annoying that this happens since it is difficult to know where the shortcodes are located. I attach a screenshot so you can see exactly what I mean. Greetings.

Hello, it has happened to me for quite some time and I did not make any changes to the page, I know that suddenly the shortcode no longer looked good. I must also say that in the editor I have never seen the exercise as such, only a mark that there is a shortcode there.  

I use Wordpress in its latest version 5.6.2 with the editor elementor pro but with elementor free the same thing happened.  

I currently use Microsoft Edge desktop browser but a few weeks ago I was using Google Chrome and the same thing happened too.  

I do not have extensions or updates, only what I said earlier that I use a new laptop and use micrsoft edge.  

I use the latest version of H5P and it happens to me with all types of exercise that I use.

I add a web address where I have exercises done with H5P and an exercise directly with the shortcode.

Hi petrayvo!

I just tried to look at your site in all kinds of browsers, and they all display H5P content normally in the frontend.

I assume you are referencing the backend: It is normal that content is not fully displayed there. The regular WordPress editor just displays the shortcode, and I assume that it's the Elementor plugin that tries to interpret the shortcode in a way that leads to the horizontal bar.
