  2. Eyedropper tool to have option to pick gradient settings

    If you have a gradient set up with custom rotation and you want to pick it to another object with eyedroper tool, the rotation doesn't transfer.

    It would save time not having to type it again.

    Maybe add some other options as well to have more control.

    It should be an option at the eyedropper tool properties. (See image)

  3. Switching to gradient should use as starting gradient color the original solid color

    Switching to solid color to gradient, by default gradient should use as starting color the original solid color.

    Since imho mostly people uses solid as starting point, then converts to gradient.

  4. 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…

  5. Be Able To Apply Two Or More Selected Swatches To Gradient Slider

    It would be nice to select two or more swatches in the Swatches panel and then go to the Gradient panel and click an option to Apply Selected Swatches To Gradient Slider.

  6. Angel Gradient

    Angle Gradient is missing since begging, I know that can be made through the Mesh Tool, but it is not very easy for everyone to make it, there are also other ways to make it but its very difficult. I wrote many basic, essential, and missing features for Illustrator in 2011 in Features Forum web but Adobe has added a few of them, it is very important that every software needs to be filled with basic and essential features, if those are missing then software could not be the best then the rest.

  7. Gradient tool not working or locked with strokes in Illustrator 2020

    The gradient tool locks or is unresponsive when trying to adjust a gradient on a stroke. I've tried adjusting gradient modes, change stroke weight all without any success. It's also now affected my Illustrator 2019 as well so I assume its related to a common resource for both versions.

  8. Gradient following the curve of a shape

    Don't know if this is an original idea but - is it possible to make an feature to make a gradient follow a user-drawn guideline (like with text on line)..? I tried to illustrate it in the attached file - the first shape is the one that should be filled with gradient, the second one is what we can do now (or mesh but that's a bit complicated) and the third one shows the guideline in purple and arrows that the gradient would follow. So the lower left part of the shape would be let's say darkest, the gradient would…

  9. Freeform gradient points copying with Alt+drag

    I grab a point, drag it with Alt held, but AI doesn't make a copy of the point. How is that?! Isn't it a general behaviour that should work everywhere in AI? It works in standard gradient (but not with mesh of course, but Freeform Gradient isn't a mesh, right? (please read it with a sarcasm).
    Please, make it work.
