Adding Custom Fields to the Shopify Dashboard

Hi Jason, 

Building a big shopify site for a music shop, and we need to have different custom fields on each product page.

I have installed your two extensions, but when i add a metafield for the product page it does not add it to the product. The product page says that there are no custom fields found:

 

Any help would be appreciated

I've updated the docs to make this a little clearer, but the main metafield gets added to the shop, not the product. Head to your settings to add it.

You're the best!

I have a custom field on my products called "materials", but when I try and pull that information into a Packing Slip template (made in Order Printer) it doesn't show anything. 

How would I go about getting that info in there?

Interesting. Since there's limitations on how you can use metafields on orders I did not expect anyone to want this. Should be a no brainer to add in. Thanks for the advice.

Sounds like a question to ask Shopify directly since they develop that app.

Regarding adding metafields to Order Printer templates, then unfortunately it's not possible at this stage, as Shopify do not expose metafields fields to us in the templates. It's something we get quite a few requests for our new templates app, but until Shopify support them it's a no go unfortunately :(

Awesome looking and very detailed guide there Jason, nice work!!

Hopefully everyone has been add their limit markers correctly as the latest update (just pushed) will now enforce them. You'll also spot custom fields in a few more places - including orders.
