Can you tell us a little bit more about your windows on the right. you say they are stacked - are they symbols or parts on the main timeline?
I have the same problem. I have several symbols all on my timeline at the same time. These symbols have buttons within them that work. But only the top symbol in the stack works. I cannot click buttons within the nested symbols 'underneath' this top layer, even if this top layer has nothing visible and all its elements hidden. One workaround I have found is to use code to delete the top symbol from the timeline when it's finished doing its thing. But is there not an easier way?
They are all individual symbols.
Tip #2 adds some insight but its not quite relevant as my symbols dont have click events on them, only within them as suggested in that post. The action to animate the symbols is elsewhere.
To summarise I have a collection of symbols which animate into the stage. When they are visible they have 2 actions a close and a learn more. The only time these actions work is on the highest symbol in the order. I dont understand why this covers up smbols which are below. Especially as they are not visible.
Thanks for your time

One thing to look for in your project file is a text element, another symbol or a transparent image element that overlaps (covers) those symbols.
I know it sounds obvious, but its an easy thing to overlook.
Example - see capture below.
My info symbol Learn More and [x] have click actions but will not work, because a neighbor element is hogging up space.
In other words element 'text' is only a single word, but the bounds (the blue border) is much larger and 'invisibly' covers the info symbol.
Also anything that has boundaries (like a transparent div) covering your symbols. Maybe you could post a link to your files
