Question 1 Post block for each category with Elementor Posts widget ?

I’m using the Astra Pro theme along with Elementor Pro. I have defined 8 post categories. On my home page, I’d like to have a grid of 8 blocks, one for each category, each one showing the summary of the latest post in that category. The block should link to either the displayed post or to the category archive. The Elementor Posts widget doesn’t allow me to do that (unless I missed something).

The only solution I have found until now (beside using yet another plugin) is to create a simple grid, each of the 8 cells containing an instance of the Elementor Single Post widget and displaying the last post of a given category. There must be a more elegant solution, I guess but I have not much experience with WP.

Another solution would be to have the Posts widget showing only the posts from one category and to have a filter bar allowing the user to select the category. But I couldn't find any implementation of a filter bar or something equivalent allowing to dynamically change the category selected in the Posts widget.

Thanks in advance for any advice.
