When editing the Variations Component you will see different sections and settings. Here is an overview of what these are and how to use them. 

Attributes

This is found at the very bottom of the component editor to allow you space to add unlimited attributes to the space. 

Add new attributes by clicking the ADD button. 

Add these first when editing your component in order to see the other customization options for this component. 

You can rearrange the order of attributes by dragging and dropping them.

Rearranging attributes here will correspond to how they are laid out in the table. From top to bottom, attributes will be shown left to right.

Title

The Title serves two purposes: (1) to identify the component in the component list, and (2) to be used within the template itself as a section header. 

If you wish to show the Title as a section header, turn on the SHOW TITLE switcher. 

 

Component Layout

The Component Layout allows you to decide how much space the component will occupy. 100% will take the whole width of the column, while 50% will take half of the column. 

When 50% is applied, there is space for another 50% component right next to it. This setting is not recommended for large tables in multi-column layouts due to space constraints, however, using the 50% layout in landscape or single-column designs can be useful.

See below an example of a description next to a small variations table:
