You can mark a fact as private. But often the fact is important, but a private note would be helpful. Could we have a way to mark a fact note as private?

From the Help File :

You can make parts of your notes private by surrounding the private text with {curly brackets}. Any text within the curly brackets will be considered private, and can be excluded from printouts, GEDCOM export, and website generation. If you choose to print the private notes, you have the option to exclude the curly brackets. (Note that neither the text within curly brackets nor the curly brackets themselves can be excluded in the Place list report.)
