Currently "Custom" events are in the Advanced section of the "Add event" drop-down list.
The "When Updating" type is, on the other hand, positioned as "the "meat" of a behavior's logic" in Stencyl Block Reference.
However, building a game with "Always" behaviours is a sure path to performance issues and doesn't stimulate thinking about efficiency.

I suggest moving the "Custom event" block to the main event types, both in the design mode UI and in the Blocks Guide, and add an extra warning for the "When Updating" entry in the Blocks Guide.
