I'm looking to create a new attribute set in Magento, I based it on our 'default' set and I'd like to remove some existing attributes from the new set I've created. However, when I attempt to drag and remove I get a 'no entry' symbol. Is there anything I can do to get around this? Or is there a reason I'm being blocked from removing attributes from the new set (new set has not been used to create any products)?

  • what are your trying to remove?

You cannot remove system attribute from your set, because these attribute are use in core magento. I.E name, description, sku, weight etc. (any attribute with the red mark on them)

.enter image description here

  • Even attributes without the red symbol are staying put, for example 'features' in your example above. Sep 2, 2015 at 7:32
  • Take a look at my update... you need to drag it right there, with in the unassigned attributes list Sep 2, 2015 at 13:48

Some attributes can't be deleted from a set. Like SKU, Status, Name etc. These attributes have a round red symbol on them.
