Tell us what you are trying to do?
Is it somehow possible to use a custom field checkbox to display/not display an image and / or view? I have found a workaround by entering HTML code in the 'Value to show selected box' for the checkbox (see attachment) so when the checkbox is ticked, the HTML code is activated and vice versa but there is probably a better way to do the same thing.
The idea is to incorporate this in an Elementor template and as far as I know, there is no option to use Toolset conditional block in Elementor.

What is the link to your site?
