I am wondering if anyone can help me as my gradient tool is not working. When I click it it switches between the mouse and gradient icon.
I am wondering if anyone can help me as my gradient tool is not working. I can click it from the toolbar or press the G key on my keypad, but when I try to use it doesn't work. The gradient icon just switches between that and the mouse icon when I press it.
Raahim, how do you use it?
For this tool to work, you have to apply a gradient to the fill or stroke first: hit '>' key or click the 'Gradient' button under the Fill/Stroke selector in the tool panel, or click the large square with the gradient in the top left corner of the Gradient panel.
If you do this, but still the tool does not work, can you please make a short small video of this behavior, or a GIF (https://www.cockos.com/licecap/ or https://blog.bahraniapps.com/gifcam/ are perfect for this)?
On the other hand, if it does — you might want to vote for the ability to apply the gradient immediately, when one drags with the picked tool, here: https://illustrator.uservoice.com/forums/333657/suggestions/40073737
In any case — please reply.
