I am using both Trello and but I have recently come across a but (either in Trello or in my brain) .
When using web-based Trello ( I have no problem accessing and opening files but for some reason, the Trello App (MacOs High Sierra) won't allow authorization. The process starts but nothing happens and the direct access is not allowed.
Can any body help?
