Add an Occupation in Family Tree Maker

Hello,
For Family Tree Maker for Mac, is there a way to add someone's occupation? I only see Birth, Death and Marriage when I click on Add a Fact. Thanks!

Under the Edit menu, you'll find "Manage Facts" where you can add additional facts to the "+ Facts" menu.

Occupation is already a fact type so you need not add it.

I think the problem is that you're clicking the downward pointing triangle on the right side of the Add Fact button. Click the side of the button with the plus sign on it (or press Command-F4 on your keyboard). You'll be presented with a list of fact types from which you can choose "Occupation."

It's really not obvious as there's not a separator on the button to give a clue that the button has multiple functions (something like on the Timeline button).
