Acceptance criteria

  • UI regression removed
  • When I click the hamburger menu (the icon in the top left) the pointer overlay disappears

Developer notes

  • A class is being used that shouldn't - use pointer-overlay-tutorial not tutorial-overlay class
  • Inside skins.minerva.newusers you'll want to bind to the hamburger menu icon and hide the overlay when the pointer overlay is clicked. Alternatively consider require the passing of a MainMenu instance into all PointerOverlays.

Event Timeline

This a more general problem and happens with toasts and possibly other similar items too. @Nirzar, do you think we should hide such things when the hamburger is tapped? To re-produce, go to and click on the edit pencil icon. You'll see a "vandalism..." message, then click on the hamburger menu. You'll see that the toast won't go away.

do you think we should hide such things when the hamburger is tapped?

Yes. hamburger should focus on the opening panel. we don't want to split attention.

Triaged as Normal over High since the toasts and tooltips still disappear properly and it is probably not the most likely scenario upon which a user will stumble.

@Jdlrobson - tried testing this on a few pages (which do not exist) - I'm getting a "this page is protected to prevent vandalism" error everywhere.

@ovasileva are you logged in? What user account are you using? A new one or your own?

Tested on the beta cluster - all done.
