I have created an ADDON that speeds up the process of assigning product attributes. No more confusing and scrolling through a long unsorted drop down list. This addon allows you to view all the attributes categorized in thier groups for easy selection on the product admin screen.
You no longer need to search and navigate the drop downs in order to get all your attributes set. Just quickly select them from the list
You include the script in on your site and it does the work automatically.
If you use the filter bar on your site you will want to get this for your eCommerce template online store.
