  2. Drag and drop the attributes you wish to add from the middle column to the right column. The selected attributes in the right column will be displayed in your Shared Catalog.

The order of the attributes in the catalog will be identical to the order set in the Attribute Groups/Attributes settings. If no sorting has been done at least once in the PIM Settings, the Attributes Groups & Attributes within Shared Catalogs will be sorted by alphabetical order.

If you need to clear your selection, click on Clear to remove all attribute groups. Finally, to save your attribute selection, click on Apply. The Attributes field will display the number of attributes selected for your Shared Catalog.
