Since 2.59 was released on ipad, including 2.59.1, excel hangs when ever I try to modify a charts data range.

 

Steps to repro version 2.59 or 2.59.1

- create a new workbook/sheet

- add series of dates to first column, and numbers to second column, eg rand()* 100

- select first dozen or more rows for the two columns, and add a line chart.

- select the chart, and extend the data range to include more rows. Application hangs and chart does not refresh.

 

Tested on ipad air 4th gen with os 15.4
