New Note editor dialog: clean note text for more terms consistency & natural phrasing
[[File:EventsCategory-EventsListView-example-50.png|right|450px|thumb|Fig. {{#var:chapter}}.{{#vardefineecho:figure|{{#expr:{{#var:figure}}+1}}}} Events Category - Events (List) View - example]]
Adding an Event to a person allow allows you to record information you have found.
When adding an event to the {{man label|[[Gramps_5.1_Wiki_Manual_-_Categories#Events_Category|Events Category]]}}, the {{man label|[[Gramps_5.1_Wiki_Manual_-_Entering_and_editing_data:_detailed_-_part_2#New_Event_dialog|New Event]]}} dialog appears.
The top part lets you view and edit basic information about the event:
* The {{man label|Event type:}} can be selected from the available types listed in the Event type drop-down menu. E.g., '''Birth'''(default), Baptism, Death, Burial, etc. You can enter you own Event [[Gramps_Glossary#custom event type |Custom Types]] by typing directly into the this entry field.
* The {{man label|Date:}} of the event can be an exact date, a range (''from ... to ..., between ...''), or an inexact date (''about ...'').
** {{man button|Invoke date editor}} button starts the {{man label|Date selection}} dialog.
Events added to a Person via the Share or by drag'n'drop will be assigned the '''[[Gramps_Glossary#unknown|Unknown]]''' Event Role by default. If the Person holds an equal Role, set their Role to Primary as well.
If none of the builtpre-in defined Roles are appropriate, add a Role ''[[Gramps_Glossary#custom|customCustom Types]]'' Role by typing keyboarding in the new Role name rather than selecting one from among those of the Role Pull-Down menu. Any added Role custom Roles types will remain available in that expanded menu ... unless the Tree is exported & re-imported or cleaned via a [[Third-party_Addons|3rd party addon]] Utility like [[Types_Cleanup_Tool|Type Cleanup]].
