You are not wrong.
They "fixed" something in 10.4 and that's when we lost that behavior.
Now we have to get more creative. I hacked up a superstore example of another way to handle this, but I can't find it right now. Let me keep looking.

Here it is:
I need to do a new video for swapping/popping. There were things about the old video I didn't like, and now there is this issue that really needs to be addressed.
There is a workbook in the reference link. That's should get you going. If you need ideas or help implementing this, ping back.
It turns out that I can't open your example since it is using v10.5 and we are still using v10.3, is there any chance you can export your example as an earlier version?
In the meantime I've been reading about just doing sheet swapping in one container with lifter sheets instead. However, I am stuck on trying to figure out how the idea of "lifter" sheets work.
Below is a screenshot of part of the dashboard I am working on. Basic rundown is I have 7 different views of a graph that users need to be able to change between using the drop down. Do you think doing the sheet swap with a left and right lifter sheet would be the best way to go about this? Or would what you linked me to this morning be the better route?
Attached is a 10.3 version of what I did.
But if you are on 10.3, you shouldn't be encountering the problem you're describing. That doesn't come until 10.4.
You might be doing your swapping and/or popping incorrectly.
In the attached, Dashboard 1 is doing Popping. It is popping one sheet over another. When it is "un-popped", in 10.3 you can still drill down to the underlying sheet. In 10.4 you no longer can do that. If you have just positioned the sheets over top of each other, you will not be able to "drill through" no matter what version you are on.
Dashboard 1(2) demonstrates a new way to flip the two (or more) sheets in and out without encountering the problem if the new 10.4 behavior. This is still using the popping technique, using a pushing sheet to move something into view.
Take a look at Dashboard 3 though. This is using Swapping. Both sheets live in the same container. Instead of using Sheet 3 (which is controlled by the value of the parameter) to push them around, only one will display because they both use the calc field that looks at the parameter. One displays when the param = N, and the other when the param = Y. No popping sheet necessary.
The concept of a lifter comes into play when you have a big pile of sheets swapping in the same container. Each non-displayed sheet retains a sliver of space about 9 pixels wide. Sometimes those remnants become a problem, and that's when you have to use a "lifter" to manage the space occupied by the remnants. Before going into all that, though, take a look at these dashboards and see if the second or third dashboard takes care of your needs.
Thank you for the prompt and detailed responses!
Dashboard 3 is what I had tried originally, but since there are 7 sheets to swap between those 9 pixels add up (especially since I'm trying to keep the graphs lined up with some info above).
Seeing your example now, I realized I wasn't popping the sheets correctly. I'm going to retry what I had and I'll get back to you.
