Overlay link not working

Hi all


I have a button that I want a hover effect so I used a copy of the button and open the copy when hovering over the original button. Works fine but to have the overlay close when mouse out I need to uncheck "Stay on target screen".

So now if I mouse over the hotspot the overlay opens. If I mouse out the overlay closes. Great!

The overlay has a click event to navigate to another screen. However the click doesnt work.

My only choice is to allow the hover to open the overlay with "Stay on target" checked which means the mouse out doesnt work. Not really a hover effect.


What I would like is another option. Now you have a "Close on clicking outside of overlay" I'd like a "Close on mouse leaving overlay". Or simply have click events work. ;-)
