When its set to – Hook “DisplayCategoryPageBuilder” – I can´t

Hi, Alejandro Herrera.
I assume you are using Elementor template for category page. Unfortunately in this case there is a limitation to build a description as well, because in this case you have one template inside another one but Elementor doesn’t work in this way

We will try to find workaround, in case of success I’ll let you know

In Theme Settings / Product Page I use – Hook “DisplayProductBuilder” – (as it says: to be able to assign a layout via “Content Anywhere” option of “Creative Elements”) This is for the product page.
Then, when I create a new product I’m able to edit description using Creative elements. So I don’t think is something related to have one template inside another.

Is the same I want to do with categories, but it works for me only in product

Yes you are right :) we also noticed that and that’s why I wrote you above that we will try to find a solution.
Back to you when will have some news

Ok try the following:
- open the file /themes/alysum/templates/layouts/layout-both-columns.tpl
- find the line

{if $controller && $preview_id && $partial_id <= 2}

- replace it with

{if $controller && $preview_id}
