Tabs in Elementor can be pretty limited. Templates fix this, somewhat, despite being a little buggy, but the tab titles, or buttons, whatever you want to call them, are still very basic in terms of design options. You can use plugins, but that’s not always the best option. Well, we can avoid using a plugin and still get very good looking titles just by adding in a little bit of CSS. I recommend using Mozilla Firefox for this, because their inspector is very easy to use. #Elementor #Tabs #TabTitles
