FileMaker Go 16 - Stacked sliding panels don't allow scrolling

Product and version: FileMaker Pro 16.0.4 and Go 15

OS and version: iOS 9.3.5 and 11.2.5

Browser and version (for WebDirect only):  N/A

Hardware:  iPad 3 and iPad Pro (2017)



We are using sliding panels as a major interface feature.  In the development process, we discovered a FileMaker Go Bug: 

1.  We stack slider panels on top of each other

2.  A panel with a portal is underneath a different slider and the top slider is not hidden with "Hide Object When" feature

3.  The bottom panel is called with the "Go to Object" script step to show the panel with the portal.

4,  The user cannot scroll the panel with a finger swipe unless the panel is hidden. Buttons, popovers, and fields are all accessible, just not the ability to scroll.

5.  Scrolling on FMP client works fine.  Only Go is affected.


How to replicate:

Put a panel on a layout.

Add a portal with several records (enough to scroll on an iPad).

Add a second, invisible (Slider Panel set to no background and no line color) slider on top of the first.

Save and test on a Mac (no issues) then on an iPad.  The panel will not scroll.


Workaround (if any):  Use the HIde Object When" command to hide the sliding panel.  When there are several panels, the logic gets a bit tricky. 


I have attached an mp4 showing the problem.
