When I am in the CalTopo app, and click on the ruler icon in the upper right of the screen, and then click on "Position & Elevation", what's supposed to happen?

When I do this, nothing happens. Is this a bug? Thanks!

    Sounds like it could be a bug, but when I use this it works fine. It shows a prompt with elevation, slope, aspect, and coordinates when I click on the map in an area of interest.

    What exactly happens when you try to use the tool?

    ... when I click on "Position & Elevation", I return to the map screen, but no information about the point is displayed.

    It might be user error on my part, unsure.

    You have to define a point after clicking on the tool. If you click on the map on your point of interest is it still not working?
