It seems like the issue is actually pretty easy to reproduce. But it does not happen in browsers. However I managed to reproduce it 100% of the time on Android (Smartphone and Emulator (GenyMotion), Nexus 5, Android 5.1).
I have an input field on my home screen where user can type things to search. This view does not contain a side menu.
I put a direct link (with ui-sref) to my second view containing a side menu (this is the buggy one…).
=> If I click in the input, it makes the keyboard appear. Then when I go to my second view (the one with the side menu) using the ui-sref link, the SWIPE “on drag” does not work.
=> If I directly click the ui-sref link ( = the keyboard has not been displayed), then the side menu can be open by swiping/dragging.
I tried with both clicking with open keyboard and closed/hidden keyboard. It “disables” the swipe/drag all the time.
Did anyone encounter a similar issue?
