Hi carolineschnapp,
Thanks so much for your work - but I've been having some trouble with you size-chart link. It seems to move the "single-option-selector" element away from the slect box and sits it on top of the size-chart link, so that it is difficult to tell what to click on. Any ideas how I might fix this? - its at for example (pw: thabra)

Hi Caroline,
May you please help with with this, i'm a novice.

  1. I need the 'size-chart' function to be available for option other than 'size' and for multiple (more than one ) options. ( i understand that this can be achieved by changing the word 'size' with the other 'option' on the instructions at this link , but don't know exactly where to change )
  2. For some option, i need a storewide chart, and for some option i need product-type specific chart.

May you please plesse help with this.

Hi Caroline,
Thank you for this, very helpful. By any chance how do i move the "Size Chart" link text to the bottom of my product page?

how can I add a close button/text to the size chart. I guess many people are confused that there is no option to close the lightbox.
Thank you!

Hello I would like to add the size chart link manually in my description text and not have it display automatically next to the variant selector. Is this possible? Thank you for your help.
