For latest release of Numbers for iPad, it seems that it doesn't remember the active cell when I close the spreadsheet.

I have spreadsheets with many (several hundred) rows and in previous releases, when I close and then re-open the sheet, it would remember what cell I had been in and display at that point again.

Now, every time I close and re-open the sheet, it displays a cell somewhere near the top of the sheet and I then have to swipe loads of times to get back to the bottom where I want to add a new row.

Has anyone else noticed this behavior and do you have a solution?

Many thanks
