Free Form gradient Line points gets deleted on changing opacity to 0 via Point Mode
Making a freeform gradient point to 0% opacity works until the object is moved. The point will be removed on moving the object. This does not affect opacity greated than 0%.
I am happy to share that we have fixed this bug in our latest release – 23.0.6 which is available worldwide now.
Going forward, our goal is to fix as many top User-Voice bugs as possible and as frequently as possible. Given the nature of the fixes, some of the bugs will take a longer time to fix, but we are on it.
You can update to the latest release using Creative Cloud desktop App: https://helpx.adobe.com/in/creative-cloud/help/creative-cloud-updates.html
Thank you for all the feedback. Keep it coming!
This bug has now come back in 24.0.2

its not only 0% opacity, it happens to me when i made 3 additional copies of one element that has freeform gradient on it, at first it looks fine but when I move the group, some nodes in the freeform gradients dissapear (they are all 100% opacity) but not on the original one, only on the copies.

Also encountering this frustrating bug. For me, I set a rectangle to have the freeform gradient. Then I adjust the color of three of the points. The last point, I set to 0% opacity. It all looks good until I click the "selection tool" and then that last transparent point is removed from the gradient.
Upvoting for the disappearing dot problem. Reducing opacity of points to 0 (or sometimes 1%) makes points completely disappear.
When attempting to expand a freeform of 0% White Spot color to 100% white spot color, the gradient area filled with a solid White
Thanks for providing information, we are able to reproduce this bug in house and send it for further investigation.
Also having issues with the 0% opacity with the freeform gradient. Undo doesn't work when a point disappears.
When I apply 0% opacity at a point or line of the freeform gradient, the point disappears.
This is quite disappointing to me that I have long waited for this tool and I really liked it to work well.

I am also finding that adding several 0% opacity point will cause it to erase previous points that are set to 0%. I am trying to use a line of 0% points to shape the fade out of a field of colors (actually something I've wanted for a long time... this will be very exciting when it is working properly).
Other than that, I'm really loving these new gradients.
