Hello, great plugin, we've been using it for years.

My client wants the text to be "swipe-able". We have a slider, with text in the middle of the screen. The area above and below the text has a "hand" which can swipe the slide to the next one. However, he gets confused because the text is not swipe-able.

For example: http://hileman.bkjdev.com/site/work/#slider2_slide_4
(screenshot of page attached if your browser does not directly go to it)

Is there a way to make the text swipe-able as well?

Thank you!

    You placed the text inside global caption element, which is not part of slides, thus it's not swipeable.

    You need to move the text within a slide.

    As an alternative, you can add pointer-events:none CSS property to .rsGCaption element and events will pass through to slider https://css-tricks.com/almanac/properties/p/pointer-events/ However users won't be able to select the text.
