Anyone know of a good reference for how to use return tracks?

I'm wanting to use a reverb on a return track . . . . and use various amounts on individual tracks.

I don't know what I'm doing wrong, but I can't get the reverb (or any kind of effect) to work on a return track. 

Works fine when dropped on to the track, but I can't get it to work with a return track. 

I've tried the Live manual, Ableton pages, various websites that deal with return tracks, but no banana.

I'm missing something somewhere, but haven't got a clue what?

Can anyone suggest or refer me to a place with a good step-by-step how to, please . . .

    Hmmmn . . . . . . I think I've got some distance to answering the question .... you can't solo individual tracks and hear the effect playing with a return track. That's why I thought I couldn't hear it.

    But is there a way to listen to (solo) individual tracks and their returns at the same time to get a sense re how much of the return to use?
