1.In the Reference Editor, switch to the References tab.

2.Click More fields.

3.Select the checkboxes for the fields you want to appear.

4.If there are fields you only use sometimes that you only want to appear if they have entries, you can select the Show all non-empty fields on the Reference tab automatically checkbox.
