  7. In the detail setting window:

    1. Select a detail to add.
      Some of the existing details are designed for specific sections. Be sure to select the version of a detail whose name specifically indicates that the detail was designed for this particular section. For example, when adding the Attachments detail to the Contacts section page, select the “Contact’s attachments” detail.
