    When you add a modalview inside a view in a pane of a splitview:
    1) the modalview can only be opened if the parent view is active (no way to share it across views via a layout navbar),
    2) the modalview opens in that pane, which means the width is limited by the size of the pane.

    I would like:
    1) to open the modalview on top of the splitview, in the center of the screen
    2) share a button in header through a layout an be able to open the modalview whatever view is displayed in teh background

    A bug? a design trade-off? my mistake and in this case any sample available?

    Hello John,

    The issue you're facing was a limitation of the beta. Now the ModalView can be defined as a direct child of the SplitView and can be referenced anywhere in it. The fix will be available with the Q2 release in a couple of weeks.
