Thanks for adding this much-needed feature!

Thank you!

Hey @MoGunarman welcome to the forum and glad you like the feature.

Thanks for your reply Matthew!

I created page with the said issue to test and keep it simple: here’s the read-only link

Thank you for the links @MoGunarman. We were able to locate the issue and push a fix. If you republish any sites with elements using pointer-events should all be working as expected. Thanks again for your feedback that helped us identify the issue.
