    Hi as you say in blog Quick form only contains one Tab and one Section we can’t add new tab or section in quick create form.is this for Custom Entity or All which have Quick Create form.
    as in Roshan Mehta blog he said on quick Create form Sections (including labels and layout formatting). It appears that there can only be a maximum of three sections on a Quick Create Form.
