'Always on top' makes the content inaccessible
I have a slide menu that pulls in via a hamburger icon. The slide menu has an overlay panel that dims the background content. These items are on my main template. When I base a screen (that has clickable elements on it) on the template, all the items under the overly are not clickable. This is the case even when the slide menu hasn't been activated. How do I get the overlay panel to stop blocking clicks when it's not even showing on the screen?
