Blocking Quick View Overlay from Robots/Indexing

My site has a quickview for products that is giving me a lot of errors in my SEO audits, and I was looking for a way to block them since robots.txt doesn't seem to be editable in Shopify.

Any suggestions?

Why is the quick view overlay being a problem? You've not given much context / examples here so I'm trying to understand to core concern first.

As of today, June 21st, 2021, we have launched the ability to edit the robot.txt file to give merchants more control over the information that is crawled by search engines. You can learn more about how to edit your robot.txt file through our community post here

Due to the age of the topic, I will be locking this thread. If you have any questions about the new feature, please do not hesitate to create a new post under our "Techincal QA" board.
