The first step is to add or define a new product metafield. This is a custom metafield you'll create the Settings of your Shopify Admin.
To set up a Cutline, you need to define (create) a new, custom, metafield definition that Broadcast can recognize.
The most important part is to use this namespace and key:
Verify the namespace and key are changed to theme.cutline
To start, navigate to your Shopify Admin -> Settings and choose Metafields from the left panel. Next, click on Products (click images to zoom):
Under 'Metafields', click on 'Products'
Click on the 'Add definition' button
Click the Add definition button to begin. Choose a name, we'll use '
cutline'. Next, we will use a custom namespace. This is required.

After adding the cutline metafield value, press the Save button to save the product changes.

Preview your unique cutline text on a Collection page
Your cutline text will only appear for this product. You can now add unique cutline text to any product in your store. If a product does not have the cutline metafield text information added, nothing will appear. Only products with a value for the cutline metafield will display that information on a product-gird or collection page.
