Is it possible to keep a modal open even if another module is touched?

I want to keep a modal module open even if I touch another module. Is it possible?

No it’s not possible.

Because of this limitation I am thinking about replacing modal with panel and play with z-layering to show or hide the widget. Do you think it’s a good idea?

Yes I think it’s a good workaround, I think i’ve seen other users doing somthing like this, maybe somewhere in the github tracker…
