My phone is stuck in One-hand Mode Tutorial

Please see the video. I have enable Android 10's gesture control as someone said that was the issue. My phone is US version.

I first encountered this issue with Version WW-17.1810.1910.63. I have flashed .68's OTA and it doesn't help. I can't really wipe my phone as my phone has 1 irreplacable authenticator.

Even i got stuck two days ago but, I quickly found pretty easy solution for it.
All you need is a Mouse ( wireless or wired ) and a OTG cable. Follow the video down below and everything will be back to normal.
I will highly recommend to Turn off double tap home key gesture to enable One Hand Mode in Advance settings until this bug is fully fixed.

Are you saying you can use mouse to passthrough the overlay? I already rebooted my phone so I'll have to enter the unlock pattern first. So if your workaround relies on having access to quick action bar then I might be out of luck.
I'll try it anyway tomorrow. Thanks.

I can confirm that this is a bug. It only happens on the first time tutorial though but I had to restart with the power and volume key to get back

Confirmed that mouse bypass the tutorial layout. You don't have to drag on the corner, just use it like your finger. I have been able to exit one-hand mode. I also switched back to 3 button navigation and the same tutorial bug occurred again, so the navigation mode may not be the cause.

The problem is with the One Hand Mode feature itself. Navigation button has nothing to do with it.
It's better to it turn off for everyone on Android 10 as i recommend earlier.
