Any thoughts? ... or is there a reported bug that I don't know about?

The issue with versions not being revert-able when you tap on the ... inside version history makes me wonder about the connection to the cloud, or whether the file is somehow damaged. You should have the last 30 days of history available to work with. I have also uninstalled/reinstalled the creative cloud app on my iPad to successfully resolve odd behavior like this.

Hi!
Apologies for the (very) late reply. You understood correctly. I did as you suggested—uninstalled/reinstalled the app, and from there on the issue has not reappeared. So YAAAY, and thank you!
