In the associated products tab, my client was accidentally clicking the “Create Empty” in the
“Create Simple Associated Product” section, thus making it unable to actually add associated products. The worst part about this, once the product is created, there is no way to undo this other than to delete the configurable product, and then re-create it, which is a total pain in the ass.
There needs to be a “remove” button, as seen in my awesome mock-up.
