Please see the attached screenshot, which shows a problem where the help overlay appears below content on the page instead of over it.

Dan, can you take a look please? I assume the theme is being unreasonable about z-index.

Yep the Canvas theme that the help site is based on has its main navigation z-index set to 9000, and the overlay is only at 1001.

The child theme we're using says a style.css that just brings in the Canvas css file, and it says to use a provided custom.css file to add any other css. It doesn't look like that file is there though. Should I just add the css to child theme's style.css file, change the z-index of the overlay to something higher than 9000, or something else?

Thanks, Dan. We shouldn't change Canvas, so I guess we'll have to up our own z-index to something like 10000. Can you take care of that please?
