Dragging with Gradient tool over object without a gradient fill does nothing
I have a path I want to be filled with a gradient.
I select it, pick Gradient tool, drag it over the path... and nothing happens.
Because AI demands that you apply gradient fill first.
Well, if I'm dragging over the path with a dedicated tool — what else would I want AI to do? Just apply it in the moment I started dragging.
