freeform gradient broken and malfunctioning
Love the capabilities of the new freeform gradient tool; however there are some unusual behaviors and bugs preventing it from working as expected. Firstly, if you use direct select to move points of a shape around, color stops are deleted once they fall "outside" of the shape boundary. Normally, gradients can fall outside of a shape, and are visually "clipped" by the mask of the shape.
Secondly, upon reopening a document with freeform gradients, I have found that the gradients are static images clipped to a shape. When I use direct select to select a shape, it selects the gradient instead. If I move an anchor past the original gradient boundary, white empty space is shown.
