Below the fact fields are three fact details buttons – Note, Sources, and Share – that relate to the fact highlighted at the left. Clicking on one of these details button will let you add a fact note, add sources of the fact information, or share the fact with other people.
At the bottom of the pane is a preview of the sentence for this fact. Above this preview is a button, '''Customize''', that will open a dialog to let you customize the sentence locally without having to change the global fact type sentence template.
