Freeform Gradient fails at transformation.
Hey I like the freeform gradient tool. But after it is applied to an object, the gradient has some major issues with resizing and rotation of the object. From what I can tell the points are not truly anchored in the object, so when the shape rotates the gradient points drop off the object, causing them to delete. It's like the gradient floats above the object. Or more frustratingly, sometimes when using the line gradient within the freeform settings, a point will delete causing the lines to cross and lock up, becoming uneditable. Usually, if you are within the gradient, illustrator will give you a warning that it doesn't allow points to be deleted if it causes the lines to cross. But it allows it if it is in some kind of object transformation. If this happens, the only work around I've found is to set the object to a non-freeform gradient, and then switch back to freeform and re-lay out the whole thing.
Any way, this is super frustrating because I've spent hours and hours redoing gradients. I need to preserve the editability of them. This is on the current illustrator version 24.0.2. please fix the bug, thanks!
