How to delete cards, no option anywhere

I have a couple of extra cards I want to delete, but I don't see the option anywhere.

I've archived it, unarchived it, and tried my best to find an option anywhere I could but I just don't see one.

Attached is an image of what I'm seeing on my screen.Screenshot (16).png

Hi @Erin ,

To delete a card, you must first archive it. Click the card to open it, then choose "Archive" from the bottom right. After archiving, a new "Delete" option will be available. Because deleting a card is unrecoverable and permanent, this requires a confirmation click.

But when I archive a card I don't have the option. Refer to the attached image. I literally do not have any other option besides sending it back to the board and putting them in an endless loop of archiving and un archiving.

Hey @Erin 

This Power-Up can save you the need to archive a card first. It creates a "delete" button on each card.

Does it cost anything to use the power up? I looked yesterday and it seemed like it did.


Edit: I added the power up but I'm still not given the option. It says it's enabled but nothing has changed, no new buttons anywhere.
