BB10: ACtionBar Overlflow Gesture

In BB10, the action bar will overflow if 4 or more buttons are added (good).  However, the gesture to remove the overflow panel is only on the outside of the panel.  The gesture to swipe to remove does nothing when done inside the panel.  Seems a little counter intuitive that the direct manipulation of an object is done outside of the object.

 

Should I file a bug report to allow the swipe gesture to occur to the panel instead (or in addition to) outside of the panel?

Re: BB10: ACtionBar Overlflow Gesture

In my experience you either tap outside the overflow menu or tap the overflow menu button again to close. I don't think there are any gestures other than the swipe up/down in overflow menu itself.

I'll wait for the next SDK if this has been improved upon.
