Magento 2.1.2. I have set up a test installation, with four sites, each with one Store and View (and corresponding root Category). I have previously successfully added products, set their categories, and they appear on the front end where expected.
But now I notice that as I add a new Product it acquires a Store View setting that's not the one I want, and there's no way to change it. After first save, when I edit the Product, there's a Store View switcher control at the top left, but it only offers the store view that the product is already configured for, and not the other three.
How is this supposed to work? Why is there no way to select a Store View scope when you first create the product? (As noted here: http://docs.magento.com/m2/ce/user_guide/catalog/product-workspace.html). If you have to go back to edit the scope, then why doesn't it offer other scopes? Have I hit a bug?
