Gradients don't snap to grid or to Smart Guides
I can't believe I haven't posted it, but the search says so.
Since CS4, I guess, when the cool and fancy gradient annotator showed up, the Gradient tool had lost it's ability to snap to grid. WHY? Do you think nobody needs to snap gradients? I need, at least.
It should also snap to Smart guides!
Everything must snap to grid, when Snap to grid is enabled.
If control points get allowed to snap to anchor points (and better also to paths), it’d look similar to Vector Q’s 'paint with color curves':
I like that!

Let gradient control points snap to Anchor Points, please.
In the curent version it is not possible to position Gradients accurately.
At present this is as designed, Thanks for raising feature request we had taken your feedback on the same.

Points on gradient (including freeform) should be allowed to snap.
It's not easy to find a script when it has such a generic name :)
I would like to test it out. May be I could fix it to match my needs,
Can you share it?

I have special "script" for gradient snap tool.
It is called - Illustrator 8, and just copy>paste you exactly and precise;y gradiented object, to "gradient just mess around version" of Illustrator
I really like that "script" because it doesn't have so many fancy functions, but has some options that were lost during development
