Custom Field:   Multiple search parameters are available within this drop-down menu (Name, Locality, Sex, etc.). Use the selection option of “LIKE” to increase your chance of finding the record. Up to 3 custom fields can be selected to narrow down the search

Another route to access Editor mode is by clicking on the small magnifying glass that shows in the top right corner of Editor mode> Adding a new record
