You can use Duplicate option.

Copy current product to a new draft , remove variations you don't want and you will get a new product.

Hi there, when i do that, the new duplicated product always says either "out of stock" or "duplicate sku".
Can you please explain this further? it is very important for us to be able to split product variations into separate products!
Should we change the product type from "variable product" to "simple product"?
Please help! thanks

If you don't want product to be a variable one, you can change it to Simple.
Then please set a stock , edit the rest information and Save all changes.

I can't do that, Woocommerce says: "Invalid or duplicated SKU."

what i need is picking only one variation of a variable product, and create a new simple product with it.
is it possible or not? if so, could you provide a step by step, please?

kindly,
Valerio

You can use a 'Duplicate' option:

When you click Duplicate there is a copy of product is created and you can edit it like you want.

How to change a product from Variable to Simple?


Let's say I want this product in my shop as a simple product, without variations (i only want the selected options in the image below). is it possible or not?

if i change the product to Simple, then all variations are removed. How do i get it linked with the right variation i want to sell?

Then you don't need to switch to Simple. You can delete variations you don't need :
