Drop down menu not visible on ipad

Using App Inventor’s website on iOS 15.2 on an iPad Pro: On a touch screen, with a long press on a code block one can get more options about that block by way of a drop down box. Normally the location of the drop down box varies depending on where the block is when it is pressed so the drop down menu could be anywhere on the screen. All of a sudden, my drop down box is now fixed at the top left of the window with only about 1/16th of an inch of the bottom of the box showing. Each time I long press on a block, the drop down box is visible but only that 1/16” so it is not accessible and cannot be moved. I have removed all cookies from the website with no effect (Safari>advanced>Website data>Site). It does this on both Safari and Chrome browsers on the iPad, but not on my windows laptop (not a touch screen). It also does it using both my google accounts. Since it is doing it on both browsers and both accounts, it seems it is an issue with App Inventor rather than the iPad. What should I do?

BTW, I have learned not to use a touch screen device to setup blocks on the app inventor - an offhanded touch of the screen can wreak havoc in unknown places.

On my iPad, it appears only sometimes. I understand your situation. However, everything seemed fine when I used an iPad keyboard and

App Inventor is meant to be worked on a PC (for example, Windows, MacBook), not on a tablet. If you use a tablet, there might be several issues.

Hi everybody,

we have the same issue on our iPads when working with App Inventor.

I've checked the context menu behaviour on Blockly  |  Google Developers and the menu is working correctly on iPad with iPadOS 15.3.

@ewpatton, are you planning to update Blockly in the near future? This would be very helpful, because we have only tablets in school and cannot use computers.

Yes, we are aiming to update to the latest Blockly over the summer.
