Rifat Elementor Mar 22, 2023

Elementor never stops providing value to its customers. Using Elementor Pro's custom icon feature, you can upload your own custom icons to your website. For work, you can use Fontello, Icomoon, or Fontastic.

Before continuing, we should point out that using custom icons is only possible with Elementor Pro; the lite version does not support this feature. The Font Awesome icons will be used by default in the Elementor lite version. Essentially, the Elementor library, which is available in both the free and pro versions, always does the job. However, for certain scenarios, you will need to insert custom icons. And Elementor Pro enables you to do so.

This article will go over how to use custom icons in Elementor Pro.
