When using Gutenberg for content within an Avada website, if you add a paragraph block that includes brackets <p>[some text]</p> the <p></p> the is stripped off, leaving only the bracketed text [some text]. I have tested this in plain Gutenberg and another block-based theme, and this does not happen. In the legacy editor, you had to escape the bracketed text using double brackets [[]] so that it would not be interpreted as a shortcode. This approach does not work.
