How to add a new custom field to an article type in salesforce. I am using the developer edition of Salesforce. I navigate to Customize -> Knowledge -> Article Types. When I click on 'edit' for an already created article type. I do not see any option for creating a new custom field for the article. enter image description here

  • Article Type is like a custom object. Don't click on edit but click on the article type itself, the link.
