Elementor Page Builder is one of the best free WordPress page builder which also has a paid version with more functionality.
Elementor is not hard to use. It’s pretty easy, but as with anything, there is a learning curve.
Drag and Drop editing is different across page builders and Elementor has done a good job in their implementation. What a lot of people have a problem with is the whole concept of page-builders and how they function. Honestly, a lot of the functionality of the block editor is based on the drag and drop paradigm. The other thing people struggle with is separating the WordPress functionality from page-builder. Elementor was not designed to do everything and some functions are in core WordPress and the Theme. You will need to understand when one stops and the other begins. The easiest way to get started is to spend some time with the Elementor tutorials, not the YouTube stuff, that can come later.
