Copy Gradient properties
Sometimes I need to add new objects with gradient fill to my design and keep gradient annotators in the same position as another existing object.
It would be great if a function were added that allowed copying the gradient fill properties from one object to another, keeping the gradient annotators in the same position.
On the other hand, when I add a gradient outline to an object with gradient fill, the gradient annotators do not match between the fill and the outline. This difference is more evident the thicker the contour. Adding the option to keep outline gradient annotators in the same position as the fill gradient would be very useful, for example for trapping or bleeding.
Gradiator panel from Astute Graphics now allows that along with many other smart gradient tricks
@Rombout, Eyedropper options are available in all versions of Illustrator.
@Miguel, indeed, right, this is not possible in Illustrator yet, but there is hope.

@Egor, which version of illustrator is this?
Thank you for your contribution Egor, but that is not what I need. In the attached image you will see better what I mean.
There is a way to do it already.
Chose Eyedropper tool, Press Enter to go to it's options (or double-click tool icon), then check both topmost options on both columns, 'Appearance'. Then it will copy all of gradient properties, including angle and position.
Be careful though, because it will now pick appearance from group[s if you use complex looks.
