Issue with collapsable sidebar making content underneath unusable

Using Experience Builder for developers (v 1.2), I want to use a side bar that covers part of the main stage content but can be collapsed to maximize page real estate. However, the content "underneath" the sidebar is unusable even when the sidebar is collapsed and the content is visible. Below, the buttons and drop-downs on the embedded dashboard under the sidebar outline do not work on the live application. I have to minimize the embedded content so that it is not underneath the side bar when the side bar is extended for it to work.

I'm wondering if this is a bug that will be fixed in future versions or if there is a workaround anyone would suggest.  I like the pop-out bar for people who want to free up space for smaller screens, but it limits the functionality of even a basic web map if any of the map buttons are in one of the affected corners.

I figured out the problem - the sidebar widget has two panels and the map widget should go inside of the second panel to prevent the sidebar from blocking the map interface. I was placing it outside of the sidebar widget previously. Hope that helps!

I am experiencing the exact same thing! I have a sidebar that goes over my map region, so the area of the map does not allow for panning or zooming.

 

Would love to know if there is a solution, alternative, or if this issue can be fixed in future upgrades of experience builder.
