<ion-nav-buttons/> doesn't work with isolated scope


I’m trying to minimize my use of $scope as much as possible in an app I’m working on. In this app, I can’t get my nav-bar buttons to work with ctrl (using controllerAs) unless I don’t use an isolated scope.

I’ve posted a full question on Stack Overflow along with a CodePen that demonstrates the problem. Is this a bug, or am I simply misunderstanding how Ionic works?

Some issue. Any answers?


I’ve got the same problem.
Searching on the net I have found that there are more people with this problem, but no solution thus far…
