How to add a check list?

I feel so incredibly stupid, probably have early onset Alzheimer's.

I keep reading:

I cannot figure out how to add a card with a list, no matter WHAT I do -- except I KNOW I've seen the options, I've even done it!

There's a button for templates and it says I don't have any.

Like the village idiot, I have NO idea what to do.

I know the feeling well. 

When you open the card, what are you seeing in the list of options under Add?


Thanks, Kat, I KNEW it was right there.  I just didn't know how to get to that menu and I kept trying to add a new card with a list (template).

So you have to CLICK ON THE CARD that's already there instead of adding it. 

In a month I have my first neurologist appointment and I sure hope there's something I can do.  I bought my first computer in 1983 (CPM) and now I constantly can't do the simplest things.

I've already watched so many Trello tutorials, but can't remember ...

Sure appreciate your support here, thanks!
