Can't select child elements in the Appium inspector?

When I’m in the inspector, clicking somewhere will only select the main view, not the element I was clicking on. So if I try to click a button, instead of selecting the button(so I can tap it or see its information), the inspector just selects the main view.

I then tried this on simple Hello World program. For some reason, here the inspector worked fine – but only for regular buttons. I added a floating action button and had the same issue with it.

The inspector does realize that the element is there; I can navigate through the hierarchy of elements manually to select the one I want, but clicking it doesn’t work.

Is this a bug? Is there some setting I don’t know about? Google can’t seem to find anyone else online with this issue so I’m not sure what to do.
