Dear OFT,

I just downloaded Arena mobile (version 1.0.18 28/08/2023) to my android but it has the same problem as I commented just earlier. I can just load the form but unable to move any other entity. The new user interface seems great. Can you please check my survey form named inventory9 for your testing purpose.

I wonder I thought I downloaded 1.0.18 28/08/2023 version. But in play store there is only . Am I missing something? alt text
