Also, the UITapGestureRecognizer won't work. However, they work if the default PanZoomGestureRecognizer is removed from the PlotView but then the pan and zoom are disabled.

The broader developer community would be the best and quickest place for additional troubleshooting help on this issue.
Posting a question on OxyPlot issues [0], Stack Overflow [1] or the Xamarin Forums [2] would be the best next step.

(Investigation by the Xamarin team in the bug tracker for an issue like this would usually require that the reporter includes additional background info to hint that Xamarin is behaving differently compared to Xcode.)

In case it might also be a helpful reference, you can find some general recommendations on the best places to ask various kinds of questions about Xamarin on:
