Quick action menu in the IPad Numbers app not working

Asked: Jun 19 2020 | 1:16 pm EDT 717 Views 5 Answers

When I right click an object ( cell, column header) in the Numbers app the quick action menu comes up for a second and then quickly disappears before I can select an item. And I can't bring the menu up at all using my finger on the screen. What am I doing wrong? Or is this a bug?

To clarify, you’re having this issue on an iPad...

Yes, on an iPad. I'm using a mouse connected to my iPad. I get this menu when I long press on an App icon on the homepage. I think it's called a quick action menu. But when I right click I on A Cell for example in numbers, that same type of menu appears for an instant and then disappears. Now the menu contains context items, so the choices are customized depending on where you perform the action.
