Issues with select2 in modal

seems that having a select2 component in an ionic modal doesn’t work. I need this to add tags that are already working on my admin web site.

The select2 shows, you can type in the field and it presents the options to choose from based on what you typed. Trouble is, you cannot choose any of the items. It seems like there is something intercepting the click event as the element doesn’t get it. Tried lots including z-order.

It maybe that select2 is writing outside of or something else.

Any ideas? I can’t use ui-select due to needing paging.
