[iPadOS] 1.5.8, 1.5.11 Long-pressing on sidebar element to select command not working

I have tried to look for a similarly worded report. If there are any that I ignored, I apologize.

Steps to reproduce

Open sidebar on a note and try long-pressing on backlinks, file properties view or any other thing. The pop-up with the options disappear in less than .3 seconds, making it impossible to select anything.

Expected result

The options with the pop-up will be displayed for an indefinite amount of time until I select or click out of it.

Actual result

You can see in the video. I’m long-pressing several times on different elements to no avail.

Thanks. Important for small screen devices to leverage Hover Editor plugin so you can move backlinks or file properties panel anywhere on screen.

Same on android device.
I checked on laptop with this.app.emulateMobile(true) the issue is the same.
