5.     Select the fact category on the left and then the fact type from the list on the right. Click ‘OK’ when you found the fact type you’d like to add. 

If you don’t find the type that fits the fact you want to add, then create a custom fact, entering it manually under ‘Or, enter a custom type’ field.
