Hover your mouse over the attribute name, and click on the pencil icon that appears before the name to edit that attribute (4).
A checkmark will now appear where the pencil used to be to show that you are now in edit mode (1). Hover over the "add files" illustration and click on the pencil to link an asset (2). To unlink an asset, hover over an asset and click on the bin icon to unlink this asset (3).
