In Automation UI which UI "Trigger Type" for a plain old Event?

A trivial question (I think), but I’m not seeing the answer in my searches.

Using the Automation UI, when I select “Add Trigger”, which of the dropdown Trigger Types do I use to just trigger on a named Event?
In YAML it is:

trigger:
    - platform: event
      event_type: <my_event_name>

But in the Automation UI which dropdown Trigger Type do I need to do this?

Context:
I’ve created an Automation (which is working fine) to fire some Events (named by me, not the HA system) for specific ZWave events that HA does’nt identify (Fibaro dimmer/switch scenes).
I can trigger on my Events fine in YAML as above, but I now need to try a simple case out in the Automation UI editor to see how it creates some YAML conditions that I’m getting wrong and struggling to debug. Thinking if I can recreate the automation’s basics in the UI, then maybe I can learn from that …
Plus useful to know how to trigger from plain named Events in the UI anyway.

Manual Event?

Hi, and thanks - that’s the one!
Not sure why I missed that. Perhaps the title “Manual event” put me off. I had tried one some weeks back and for some reason only linked it with literally manual events rather than HA events, but at that point I had n’t created any of my own Events in HA.
