Gradient tool issues
Handles on on object's Gradient Annotator are difficult to adjust once a gradient has been dropped. Usually, handles simply don't respond. User needs to start from scratch and create a brand new gradient rather than make small adjustments to existing ones.
Repeated but not consistent bug: adjusting one gradient causes changes to unrelated gradients on same document.
Live preview of gradient tool is prohibitively slow, esp when gradient is anywhere near an existing Effect.
FIX: Allow us to toggle the preview effect.
- Dropping a color onto the gradient slider, color creates a new color-point onto slider, immediately next to existing color-point, rather than dropping color onto the existing color-point, creating extra color points. Usually happens further than the desired color, usually black or white leftover from default gradient. See attachment.
The gradient tool is sooooooo painful.
I just upgraded to Illustrator 23.0.4. The gradient slider does not show when creating an angle or adjusting. there is actually total malfunction of the tool itself. At this point I don't have use of the gradient and I'm in the middle of a job for a client. who is going to pay me for my time while I'm trying to work.
