How to use product attributes like color or size?
I've followed this instruction but it's not what I want:
I've created a list field for color attribute. And I want to set several colors for one product. I don't want to create multiple product variations, upload same photos and enter same prices. I want just to tick checkboxes with necessery colors. Is it possible?
It works ok when I set just one value in field settings - making it a dropdown list (or radio boxes).
How to make it work for multiple values in one field?

There's a few steps - should be in the module's documentation so always check there first. You first create a Product Option Set within the Store > Configuration > Products > Option Sets. This is usually a Select List with the options you want (field name: Color, options: Red, Green, Blue).
Then you modify your Product Type (not the Product Display aka content type since an option is related to a product, not the content type) and create a new field, maybe called "Choose a Color", select the Product Option field type, and select the option set you created. You can also set if it is a required option set, etc.
There is also the "show on cart form" setting within the field that you want to set to it shows on the add to cart form for the product.
