Delay between 2 touch commands

I'm working on a slide screen that comes in on a background swipe, this is working perfectly.

On that slide screen I have multiple links to apps (on touch, open app, appname. When I click a link it opens the selected app, so also working perfectly!

My problem: when the app opens I also would like to close the slide screen. I can make this happen by adding a second touch command with a shortcut to nova > goto screen 1, but doing so puts the app that I want to open to the background.

It doesn't matter if i put the nova shortcut first out last.

Is this a bug or...

Instead of second touch command try adding a global switch which activates a sliding animation.
