Hide the Edit With Elementor Button for User Roles

If you are using Elementor, there will be an “Edit With Elementor” button on your post editing screen. This allows users to edit the post with the Elementor editor rather than the normal WordPress editor. This button is usually placed in the top left corner of the block editor.
