Is there way to merge the product variations with the same name and the same features into one single variation? CS-Cart 4.11.1 
Or do I have to assign it to each product, meaning That I have to 
decouple all of the converted variations and create the new ones?
After I’ve converted my store option combinations into the product variations using suggested
and I’ve ended up with many duplicates of product variations.
They are like:
Category A  variation 1 (it has 5 features)
Category B  variation 1 (duplicate) (it has  same 5 features)
Category C  variation 1 (duplicate) (it has same 5 features)
Is there a way to to use my original variation1 over all of my categories?
I've tried to assign it at the  Category A  variation 1 editor, so that the original variation 1 and its features should be assigned over all of the Categories (B,C D,) but it doesn't seem to work?
Kind regards

Yeah, the conversion process was a nightmare.


I've reached out to cs-cart in order to know if they plan to add feature merging tool because after the conversion there are many duplicate features but they said that they don't see such a need and said that I should contact developers from the marketplace if I need it.


It's outrageous after the mess that was created they don't provide any tools to quickly fix it after the conversion.


Right now, I'm manually redoing all of my products. Maybe by the end of 2020 I will fix all of the problems (40 k products).


They have also announced other changes to be implemented with the product features (they will not be dependent on categories).


I wish they would also think about long time customers and backward compatibility.


In my opinion the merege tool should work like this:

1) I select 2 features (merge from/merge to)

2) I click the button "merge" and the feature variants "merge from" are assigned to "merge to" feature based on string comparison.

3) After the process all of the product variations groups are regenerated

4) Feature merge from gets deleted.


Ikoshkin, Imac - could you say something about this issue?
