Have only nav bar draggable for side menu

Hi. I’m writing an app that has both a left side-menu and a tabbed view. One of the tabs needs to have a list of slide-boxes. My problem is that sliding out the slide-boxes causes both the slide-boxes to slide out, and the side menu to open. It would be fine for this app if only dragging the nav bar opened the side-menu, but I can’t quite figure out how to make that happen.

The nav view is inside an ion-side-menu-content element. I can set the drag-content attribute of the ion-side-menu-content to false, but that disables dragging both the nav bar and the rest of the content. Is there any way to have the side-menu dragging apply only to certain elements? Thanks.
