Having some difficulty with flow components. I have a header and footer set by default. I then overlay a layer on click, and then overlay yet another layer on top of that on another event.

The issue is, when going back from the third layer, the footer randomly appears on the second layer, even though it is overlaid.

Seems like a bug. Any workarounds?

Have the same issue here

adding headers and footers seem to be a bit wonky on screen content as well. I have scroll components that either have their content inset off, or have their placement off, when i have headers and footers involved :(

Can you set z-indexes and chose where you want those to live in the zed? I'm not sure how I feel about the flow components. I like a little more control.

I fixed the scroll issues by removing the content inset property with any reliance it had w/ the header and footer - so that works.

I'm starting to learn that best practice is to use showNext() when actually showing sub pages, and using showOverlay...() only for true overlays. Then hiding / showing a tabBar with showNext().

It's a bit inconvenient, but seems to be the best solution.
