This one's a common issue ever since Marvin 3 was released. If you look at the app reviews on iTunes, it's mentioned there.

Marvin's been abandoned for a long time though, so either the user has learned to live with it, has developed a workaround (as @MartyTX has) or has switched to something else by now.

Easy to manage, easy to backup, loads of options, no monthly subscription.... but yeah we'll have to move on once it hits an iOS that it won't work under
Yep. I've purchased a number of apps including KyBook (1-3), MapleRead, Hyphen, etc. but I keep going back to Marvin. For me, it strikes a good balance between customizability and simplicity.

Thankfully, it's still supported on iOS/iPadOS 13. I've found text selection (in Settings, not in books) to be occasionally wonky on "unsupported" resolutions (e.g. iPad 10.2"). Apart from that, Marvin's been working the same as it always has (bugs and all).
