If you've received an error message, that message will detail what went wrong. In most cases it was a missing file or font it detected during the pre-flight process.

If necessary, you can replace the existing template using the Replace button or modify settings using the Edit feature.

Associating your template with a product

Now that you have a template registered on the system, you can associate it to a product variant.

1.) While in the Liftoff dashboard, navigate to the product you wish to associate with this template.
2.) Under the Specs tab, locate the Product Template drop down box.

3.) Select the template you wish to use with this product variant. If you're working with multiple variants, you can assign different templates to each variant, if desired.

Testing your template

There's no better way to find out if your creation works than to test it on your site. Assuming that you have published your product and have assigned it to a category, you can preview your template by proofing it on your website.
