Freeform gradient doesn't work with Recolor Artwork
There is no way to recolor the gradient points in the Freeform Gradient in Color Guide → Recolor Artwork. This is very problematic when you try to apply a color group to the gradient. It works very well with regular gradients, but not with freeform gradients. I think this needs an update or else it will be very time consuming to edit all the colors of a freeform gradient.
Recolor now can be used for Freeform gradients correctly, allowing access to all colors used in it.
Hi，Anish，I want to ask have you updated the freeform gradient to color mode？

Very happy that Adobe addressed this! Now we can use Recolor Artwork on freeform gradients in Illustrator 2020! Thanks!!
I Need This Too !

I found another bug with Recolor Artwork:

Please add this option. Recolor Freefrom Gradient with Recolor Artwork Tool!!
Adobe please fix <3
Jeff D commented
This seems possible. Make it happen.
Yes, this would be intuitive. Not sure why it isn't a feature.

I also agree this would be very helpful!
Thanks Lukas. Adobe, please see comment below!

Freeform Gradient is not affected by Recolour artwork or other Object > Edit Colour edits.
Objects consisting of a mix of objects, gradients and patterns will not recolour as expected if containing objects with Freeform Gradient.
Recolour Artwork is used to change colour scheme
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select a Freeform Gradient
2. Try to recolour artwork
Same behaviour as other objects
Second this. I was expecting this to work just liekin linear and radial gradients, but was sorely dissapointed.
I completely agree with this.

As with other colors/gradients, it would be ideal if the new Freeform gradient can be adjusted with the Recolor Artwork tool. For example if I have a monochromatic red gradient setup and want to duplicate it identically but shift it to a monochromatic blue setup, I don't seem to be able to do that currently. When selecting the freeform gradient affected shape, the Recolor Artwork tool doesn't change anything. Please allow Recolor Artwork tool to shift/adjust the color of a freeform gradient. Thanks!
This bug needs a fix!
Just wanted to add that it works perfectly fine to recolor a gradient mesh this way so it doesn't make any sense that it does not work on a freeform gradient.
