Inline Template Placed First in Ephox "Locks" It

I have a few items that have an inline template placed as the very first item inside of an Ephox editor. When I open up these items, almost all of the Ephox menu buttons are grayed out because that piece isn’t “Editable”. The most important thing is that the full screen button isn’t available when that happens and the user will have to scroll down (in Ephox) and then click inside of an editable part before they can use the full screen button and actually see where they are clicking. I guess I am wondering if anyone has run into this and what they did to fix it. The full screen button being available would be the ideal situation as it is what almost all of our users are trained to do first, but any other options would be great as well.
