alt click swatches to add colors to a selected gradient
With a gradient object selected, it would be much quicker to alt click swatches from the swatch panel to add to current selection
This is exactly how it works now — Alt+clicking a swatch applies it to selected gradient stop. Please comment if it’s not what you had in mind.

Don't get it. Add where? In which specific position of the currently selected gradient? Please elaborate.
I really want to know, because I know that current UX for gradients is waaay less that perfect.
