I have created a new Custom Field Set. When I set Display Style = Inline, the tab shows as expected.

However, when I set Display Style = Tab, it disappears. There is no Custom Fields tab either?

How can I make the new Custom Field Set visible?

Tab or Tab with Table display style creates a separate navigation tab to display and edit the values.

It will be shown as an extra tab in the Contact Summary Page unlike Inline which include the set of fields in the main contact Add/Edit form and Contact Summary screens.

Note: Tab with Table is recommended for customs data sets which allow multiple records.
