Shift hold (Constrain angle) within gradient use not working
When I shift hold a gradient now it doesn't snap (constrain angle) in Illustrator. I've checked my general settings and constrain angle is set to 0°... have I missed something? Version 23.0
We have the fix available in the latest release. Please update Illustrator using Adobe Creative Cloud application to the latest build for version Illustrator CC 23.0.2

Same problem, windows 10, ai 23.0.1.
Gradient cannot be made exact horizontal, vertical and at a 45 degree angle.
Same problem here. 12-11-2018

I just noticed this bug today also.
I'm having the same problem with simple linear gradients. The tool doesn't constrain with the Shift key, and I can't see where I'm drawing the path.
The adobe update is horrible, so many problems in AI and PS, makes me wanna just go back to cs6 and void all this drama every update. please resolve this gradient issue. No sense relearning the entire program every 6 months

Nice, the new smooth previewing Gradient Tool - but it seems to no longer snaps to points and no longer constrains (shift).
this makes accurate position impossible.
Me too! (•̀o•́)ง

Just found the issue today and it is very annoying. You have to draw roughly what you want then reset the angle in the Gradient panel. Really not ideal and we're convinced it worked fine in CC2018.
Im still having this problem with the Gradient Tool.
CC2018 23.0.1 - OSX Mojave
I have same problem windows 10. Very annoying
Hi, good to hear you're looking at this – I downloaded the latest update 23.0.1 and the problem still remains for me... I can't use version 23 until this is fixed. Thanks for your help.
This needs to be fixed ASAP.
I'm experiencing the same issue as well. On windows 10.
