How to access back of card

New to Trello and nothing happens when I click on a card to access the details on the back.  Has to be a simple answer, but I can't find it.  Thanks much!

@Bob Black clicking is the way to do that, so it seems like some sort of malfunction. Can you maybe do a loom video (without any personal/sensitive information) and post here? If you can't do that without sharing any sensitive info you could do the same but instead of posting it here go back to and submit the question to Trello instead.

Thank you for responding so fast.  I was "clicking" by tapping on my MacBook, but apparently you have to actually push hard enough to actually "click" the track pad.  Thanks again.

@Bob Black cool I actually prefer tap-to-click, you can enable it:

Also, a slightly more hidden gem is the "3 finger drag" which is hidden away in accessibility settings:

I've tried tapping, "clicking", everything I can think of bug the back of the card is stubbornly hidden.  WHY is it not under the pencil menu?  What is the point of revealing all those other options and NOT revealing "EDIT BACK"????  Sadism?

No other app is so frustrating as this, if they can make the web work, why can't Trello?

I can even see the url change (briefly) but it won't open the edit back dialog.  This is ridiculous.
