Issue: can't click anywhere while a component is overlayed by variant

I used overlay functionality but by doing that now I can’t click anywhere once it’s overlayed now what should I do. What I really want to do is to be able to click anywhere in the frame (screen) after a component’s variant is overlayed in order to interact with that component. Plz, help.

Overlays block interactions below. You need to use Change To interaction instead of Open Overlay.
