unable to apply gradient to a stroke. CS6 creative cloud. trying to make a cylindrical/tubular structure with form.
in gradient window, when selecting to apply the gradient either within, along or across the stroke, one gets the same result. a vertically oriented gradient which has nothing to do with the stroke. quite frustrating. even if one changes the orientation, it does absolutely nothing.
This is the reason why I upgraded. What a disappointment! And I see from the web that I'm not alone.
