I and a friend who is a Pro Guide have both experienced varieties of this UI/UX problem.

From Android and desktop, it can be difficult to get a line/route to come up, when we try clicking on it. If we try enough time and are super nimble, we can get the line/route to come up, but it's pretty darn fussy and difficult.

From iOS, we both were unable to get the line/route to come up.

we've tried this on a non CalTopo GPS app, and it was much easier and smoother.

    This is improved in the next beta with long press features enabled as well. For now did you click on the map items menu and click on the actual map item? That will also bring up the menu.
