Bug Fixes 🐞

  • PLANET-6460 – Covers block buttons not accessible with keyboard
    • On the Covers block, it’s not possible to press the button using the keyboard. This is because the event listener uses the “mouseup” and “touchend” events. Converting this to use “click” will still fire in the same cases, but also for a keyboard.
