New transaction pop-up freezes

Hi, I work on an iPad Pro (latest IOS version) and this problem just started occurring in the last two days. I click on the '+' button and when the 'New Transaction' pop-up appears, the Description field is greyed-out and the whole app (including pop-up) freezes - no way to cancel or exit. I then have to leave the app, close it down using the iPad swipe-up feature and then re-launch the app. When I reopen, the 'New Transaction' feature works fine. This is occurring randomly so I cannot pinpoint the cause, I think this might be happening when I use the iPad in split screen mode (which I usually do, so I can reconcile with my bank on one side and MD on the other). Can you pleasehelp out as this is causing huge delays in reconciling. Thank you

    Update - more features are freezing when I am in split-screen view.

    Thanks for taking the time but alas, all the iPad runs is a MoneyDance IOS app - a simple sync display of my computer's MoneyDance data. There is nothing to customise or play with. The reason I brought this up is that it has worked fine for years and the freezing just started to happen in last couple of days. Methinks it is an IOS update clash with MD?

    Try the latest preview / beta iOS app build. There’s a link on this page.

    I am now going to say it is due to a sync delay. Seems that everything I enter causes an immediate live sync to Dropbox and this freezes the app while the sync wheel rotates. Sometimes, the delay takes a couple seconds and then the window unfreezes, sometimes it just stays frozen. Now if I leave the app, when I come back a minute later, the app is unfrozen but the action I was working on is lost. The only new change in my system is that I installed a new WiFi router and SSID logon - but speeds are all still the same???? [Note: since first post, I have uninstalled/reinstalled the app and rebooted the iPad twice - still same problem.]
